I walked into my office this afternoon and picked up my cellphone and …. what…. oh man! My phone is dead. My beloved Treo 650 which has served well over the last few years gave up the digital ghost. It won’t boot, and charging it only makes the battery hot. I have no idea why it finally perished but so be it.
The problem is I’ve lost my evening reading bible (Palmbible +) as well as my contacts, calendar, to do and well, all the stuff that I carry with me all the time in it’s relatively tiny package. The biggest part I’m going to miss is the Bible. I took it visiting, and read it every night, even when I would wake up in the middle of the night since I could read it without lights on and the back light turned real low. I had the ESV, NIV, NASB, KJV, Greek, Hebrew and even Haitian Creole bibles on it plus a lot more.
So I rummaged through the closet and grabbed an old LG clamshell of my wife’s which has a few quirks (defects) but at least it mostly works. I swapped my sim card and voila! I’m good to go at least for a few days while I pray about a replacement. I’m not sure I really want to go back to a full PDA phone even though I miss it. I’ll get used to whatever I use. But what I need to make sure of is that I don’t get something I don’t need.
Any suggestions?
