Good Bye Silver, Hello Rosie

In less than 24 hours from the time I submitted the order, I got my new iPhone in all her rose gold glory.  I was sure I’d never be able to make the switch and debated working out of the home office to make use of mobility services OR going to an AT&T kiosk.  I received an email with step by step instructions so decided to take the plunge and DIY instead.

Of course I get stuck.  DIY *!(&&(*!(#* But there was a number to call. I tell the rep what I am doing.  She says “sure I can help you” then boom call failed.  I was like what the what, she hung up on me!!! and my new phone isn’t working yet.

I found a land line to use (the horrors I know!) and called AT&T back.  But as I was talking through the prompts to get to a live human being, I noticed that by miracle of miracles the new phone was waking up AND working AND had 4 bars AND everything AND I mean everything came over.  Even the apps.  Thanks to the magic of iCloud back-up.

I spoke to someone else who walked me the rest of the way through transfer.  Only afterwards did I realize the first person did not hang up on me. She pushed her magic button and like that Silver was history.

Rosie is not perfect.  She was made with a defect having no place for my current earbuds.


Actually Apple has special earbuds just for the 7s with a flat connection versus a round one.  But have no fear, they also have this tiny adapter. I can use my old earbuds in a pinch.


Or I can spring for air pods.  Oh who I am kidding?  I’m too cheap for that.  I mean really. When the most I will spring for a new phone is a buck 06, I’m not going for air pods until Apple starts giving them away.

As always, more to come.

  1. I heard that Apple computer announced today that they have developed a computer chip that can store and play stereo music in women’s breast implants. The iTit, will cost between $499 and $699, depending on ‘speaker size’.
    This is considered to be a major breakthrough because women have always complained about men staring at their breasts and not listening to them.


      1. Yesterday we discussed a family boycott re: nothing new. Of course I agreed since I’d completed my upgrade Thursday. I’m locked in for 2 years anyway 😁
