so i got my new phone yesterday. i got the I phone 7. The 32 gig model. I love it. I had to pay 99 euro for the upgrade. Now I am entered into a 24 month contract with the phone company but thats ok with me, I didnt really mind that. The guy who did the upgrade was really nice. He was really friendly and he tried to get me as many discounts as he could. I asked him if he could put my sim card into the phone for me as that is hard to do. I also asked him if he could turn on voice over for me. At first he said I’d have to take out insurance on the phone which also included tech support. That would have cost me 15.99 a month. He thought I didnt know anything about I phones or how to use them. When I told him that actually I know how to use the phone, and I didnt really want insurance, he agreed to switch it on for me and put in my sim card. I was delighted that he agreed to do it for me. He could have just said no or get the insurance. It took about an hour to get the upgrade completed. There was so much paper work to do. I also had to set up direct debit to pay my bill each month. I really didnt want to set up a direct debit but I had no choice as it was required. After the upgrade was complete I took mom for a coffee to thank her for waiting around for me. She said she didnt mind, there had been music playing on the street, people busking and she was enjoying that. So she said the time passed quickly. So now I have the new phone, I had backed everything up to the cloud so it was just a matter of downloading all my apps, photos etc back onto the phone again. That took me about an hour to do yesterday when I got home. I’m happy with the phone though. I really like it.
You are never too busy to take time out of your day for those who matter most. You can always make time.

tomorrow I will get a new I phone. An I phone 7. I cant wait.
I tried to get my upgrade through the online service, but the gal I spoke to, she said she needed my bank details, and without them, she said she couldnt tell me what I was entitled to, she said she had to have them to even give me some info on phones that were available to me.
I said, no thank you, I will go to a store to get my phone!
So that is what I am doing! I rang the local store and they were able to tell me what I needed to bring in with me and how much it would be etc.
So tomorrow, a new phone will be in my hands! Yay!
I have decided to give my old phone to my 10 year old niece, if her parents will allow her to have it. If they dont, I will sell it or trade it in for money. I’d rather see my niece have it though.
