iThe iGreat iPhone iCrisis iOf i2012

Normally, I don’ have time to be on my iPhone all day, but since I’m not working, I’ve been using it a lot – especially when I am not home. I don’t have the iPhone 5, but I like liked the iPhone I do have. It is was good for things on the go – like blogging and social media and emailing. For me, it has been like a home office to go. And it fits in the palm of your hand. You can literally carry your phone and everything you need, especially if you have a case like the one I am giving away.

So when my iPhone decided to blow up stop working lose everything freeze up and never unfreeze have an issue today I was not happy. At all. I was even more unhappy when I went to the ends of the Earth to find the information Apple needed to find out what was wrong with it (serial number-pass key-all while screaming through that useless Google phone thing in Gmail-yes I know I could find an Apple Store) and Apple told me it was my anti-virus software that clearly “messed it all up.” Really? REALLY?!

If nothing else, I have been reminded to keep things in perspective-

These two got a lot of hugging today-

Speaking of which, all of my photos are gone too. Everything from the last four months, which I don’t understand since I backed everything up to iTunes on a nightly basis when I charged my phone.

Good thing I can’t figure out WordPress right now either. My life has apparently become a technological nightmare.

Speaking of nightmares (bad luck comes in sets of three’s right and when you reach three, you’re done forever, right?)-


As of last week, I no longer work as a 9-1-1 Dispatcher. It’s sad (at least, I am sad), discouraging and hopefully what was truly meant to be.

So, while I am looking for full-time employment that offers decent pay and benefits, I’m working on something I’ve always wanted to have – a freelance writing career (help me decide on a business card here). Since most job searching is done online these days, I have a lot of time to blog and “wonder if my iPhone has the latest upgrade it possibly could.” It is this type of thinking that clearly created my Great iPhone Crisis of 2012!

What about you- Do you rely on your phone? Is it for fun, business or both? How do you back up your stuff (apps, music, pictures, etc)? What would you do if faced with a phone crisis?

Until the next mile marker,
