My birthday is coming up and as most of you know I text message more often than I call people because it’s more convenient for me (someone who can’t hear) to carry on a text based conversation long distance than it is to try to carry on a voice conversation long distance.
This has always been somewhat of a chore for me because my cell phone had no keyboard. So it would take me forever to reach the letters I wanted, often by the time I had typed up my entire reply the person I was replying to would have called wondering why I hadn’t responded.
So as an early gift my mother bought me a dark red Pantech Duo, a cell phone which has a slide out number pad as well as a slide out standard keyboard. This means great things when it comes to my ability to communicate with family members and friends long distance (nonface-to-face). It’ll not only be quicker but less irritating as well.
Other neat things is that it is loaded with Windows and lots of little games, because as we all know I’m a PC solitaire pro. To the max!
When I turned the phone on for the first time I already had 2 text messages from my mom, saying things about how it’ll be easier for us to talk now and other heartfelt motherly stuff. She had set the phone’s background image to an image of the rest of my presents all wrapped up and waiting for me. I actually have to wait until the 15th to open any other gifts, though.
