Ya know those movies where the character’s life is fucked up and they say that it cannot get worse and suddenly something bad happens? Too bad it exists outside the movies. My life is a big piece of shit since a couple months ago. Yeah, that was bad, but yesterday it got even worse. And I didn’t even say anything. When I got home I toke my wallet from my pocket and when I was putting my hand in my other pocket to take my iPhone from it, well, there was no iPhone. I really got desperate when I couldn’t find it. Maybe I already toke it from there and didn’t notice it? I checked all over the place and that was just not the case. So I opened my iCloud account and Find My iPhone was not able to locate anything. I said “DAMN!”. In a minute it found my iPhone. Shit, it must have got out of my pocket in the buss considering the place it was. So I ran to the bus stop and waited for the bus. After 2 buses, I found NOTHING! So I went to the civil police department and told them my phone was missing and that I was able to find it using Find My iPhone. They said they could not do anything and told me to call the military police. Brazil is one of the most expensive countries to live and the one who has the third highest taxes and what we get for that? NOTHING! So I got home and tried to locate it again and no luck. Waited a few more hours and no luck. The only thing I can think of is that someone found it and turned it off.
Today I had to get a new cellphone. I couldn’t afford another iPhone as they are very expensive here(in fact, Brazil has the world’s most expensive iPhone). My options were limited to 2 Android phones with 2 inch screens and a BlackBerry. I ended up getting the BB as it would be nearly impossible to type on those phones. Seriously guys, now I understand why Research In Motion is about to face a bankruptcy. This phone just sucks! I mean, those guys don’t really know what usability is. The keyboard is just to small. A touch screen phone is MUCH better.
I still have a very small hope of finding my iPhone. I will call the bus company on monday to see if they know anything. In case they don’t, I will just give it up and call every single Brazilian carrier and inform them the phone IMEI so no one will be able to active it on their networks. I just hope I will have money to buy another iPhone soon.
