First World Problem(s).

I got caught in a downpour on my run this morning. The really hard stuff started just before the halfway point and I was soaked by the time I made it back home. My immediate concern was for my phone. but all seemed fine when I checked it out in the garage - fine enough that I ventured back out into the driveway to take a quick photo to share on Instagram. 
(I was especially proud of the time I clocked for my four mile run - a personal best since I started running again in April!)

A half hour later, things weren't seeming at all fine. I buried the phone in rice (and geez, I hope brown rice works - it's all we had!) and started thinking about what to do in case it doesn't work. The new iPhone is rumored to be coming out September 16. I briefly considered simply waiting until then - I'm due for an upgrade (and I have a birthday, anniversary and Christmas coming up) - but then remembered Tuesdays with Charlie and my upcoming trip to Florida. I need a phone.

So I found my old one (wow, it hasn't even been two years but it seems really old), charged it and was pleasantly surprised it seems to still work. I took it to the AT&T store this afternoon and - even better surprise! - there was no charge to reactivate it. Five minutes later I was out the door with a phone. 

Now I'm waiting for the latest iOS to install (and hoping it will!) - and then I anticipate a few hours for my latest backup to restore.

Hope your week is off to a smoother start...or maybe I need to consider that mine is actually off to a pretty good one, all things considered!

First world problem(s), right?! :-)

It may well be a first world problem if all you have is brown rice to put your phone in! But still, definitely a problem. We went without cell phones for decades, but now not even I can not imagine life without mine. Good luck installing and restoring!

That's a mixed bag on the phone but I guess you can limp along with your old one until the new one comes out in September.

That's a win in my book! I think we're due for upgrades too, I'm going to have to look into that!

Oh yes, I can entertain you for hours about my cell phone woes. Glad you had a back up!

I had no idea a downpour could ruin a phone! Glad it the trouble seems to be working out and we'll have Tuesday with Charlie!

September isn't too far off, unfortunately (or not). Time's flying.

Glad you have a spare. Your "newer" phone might work . . . eventually!
