Maggie Lerew is a kind woman in her early twenties. She recently graduated with her bachelor’s degree and has also been a proud owner of the iPhone since the iPhone 3. Remember that time? Seems so long ago. “I would have had the iPhone 2, but that was a little excessive because of how young I was,” said Maggie with a slightly defiant grin. Today we are going to talk a little bit about Maggie and her cell phone usage.
So Maggie, tell us what it is you love so much about smart phones?
“What don’t I love about smart phones? I guess maybe that I am slight, well no really addicted to it. I see the people walking down the beautiful street just staring at their phone and not looking at their beautiful surroundings. I don’t want to be like that at all but I do from time to time get sucked into it like that. Like so many of us! Back to your question though, what I love about smart phones is your access to information and people. I mean, when I got my smart phone I started to communicated with my parents so much more. They both have iPhones and so does my little brother and having iMessage and all of that good stuff makes it so much easier for me to be in contact with them! I love it. Oh and the apps! The apps are the best! There is so much you can do: Facebook, Instagram, Gas Buddy, your bank, the weather, etc. Then Google searches are at the tip of your fingers. It’s the best.”
Maggie, it seems like you really love your iPhone. Is there anything you don’t like about the iPhone?
“Well, I mean they are made of glass. Thankfully the newer versions of the iPhone like the 5c which is made of plastic on the back and then the 5s which I think is metal are only partially made of glass but you can seriously damage your phone if you drop it. I really try to be careful but Otterbox cases are so big and I really want a small cutesy one but I a so afraid of dropping it. However I just heard that there are more and more companies that are offering cell phone repair as an option for people who drop their phones and crack their screens. That is really awesome.”
Do you know a lot of people who crack their iPhone screens?
“Oh yeah,” she said with a look of almost disgust mingled with humor. “How could you not know people who crack their iPhone! They are made of glass. And the iPhone repair can cost you a ton of money after a warranty expires if you go through Apple. I even know people who have cracked the screens of their tablet and need their tablet screen repaired. Fortunately though there are new companies that fix your screens at low cost! So ultimately there is no excuse for someone to not get a smart phone in this day and age.”
