the phone shopping bug

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of LG DoublePlay™. All opinions are 100% mine.

My phone recently bit the dust. And it bit it hard. The phone was working just fine and then all of a sudden the display stopped working. My cell phone provider's technical support said they hadn't ever had that problem reported before, which I believe is code for "I have no idea how to fix this, but I'm going to make you try 5000 things, all which require something popping up on the display". So, yeah. I was out of phone commission for multiple days. THAT WAS REALLY HARD.

I was browsing around T-Mobile's website for a phone that wouldn't break the bank and that would have that same awesome slideout keyboard that my phone had, because I'm so not ready for that fancy technology of touch screens only. We have unlimited texts on our phone plan, which is super important. Not so much now, but when we first started dating, we were sending over 1000 texts per month. EACH. I'm surprised my thumbs didn't fall off.

With Twitter and Facebook and all that good stuff, the texts have dwindled down, but that's only because we have smartphones that just plug us right in instead of having to scroll through a billion Twitters that I really don't care about.

In any case, I really really love the LG DoublePlay™, which conveniently enough, is only available from T-Mobile. It's got a split keyboard! I'm pretty sure that's all ergonomic and crap. It's got a huge display and a pretty great camera, both must-have qualities for me, mainly because 1) I'm getting old and 2) I like pictures.

Turns out a super awesome friend had the same phone that had originally bit dust and mailed it to me. How awesome is that? Karma, my friends. Well, and having awesome people in your life.

Do you spend approximately 6501 hours with your eyeballs glued to your phone? What's the highest number of texts you've sent in a month?
