Bye Bye Blackberry

My experience with cell phones has been stellar. I've had several different cell phones in the past 10+ years, but I've never switched due to damage from dropping, a quick swim, or any variety of things that might happen to cell phones.

I'm sad to say that my impecable record with cell phones has come to an end. My old, but reliable, Blackberry Curve met an untimely demise with a certain pup's water bowl. No, it wasn't my Bogey, but my sweet little canine sister Josie's bowl.
So...my phone went from this...
to this...
to this...

and then to this...

all in a matter of hours!

I have officially been Droided. Thankfully I had never used my most recent upgrade period so I could get any new phone at the discounted price, with a new 2-year contract. Not a problem for me, no plans on switching from Verizon in the future.

So...here's my question. Being a Droid newbie...and an app newbie for that matter...any recommendations for the best apps??

I hope you like your new phone! I'm retiring my BB this weekend for an Iphone. Can we say technology overload? haha:)

I'm an Android user, and I love it. Words With Friends is a fun Scrabble type game you can play with friends having iphones or droids. Shazam and Pandora are fun music apps. And who doesn't love the magic eight ball?

I have a droid and love it! :) So fun for you!! Hmm... pandora and calendar pad pro is awesome. Do you use a gmail? IF so, it links to your gmail calendar. For a type-A planner like me it is AMAZING! Enjoy!

My Blackberry Curve that I just for Christmas - had an unfortunate and untimely death too! In a cup of my husband's Dr Pepper. It soaked in there for hours on a Sunday without us knowing. So tragically sad!

I've never had a droid, but I love this post and the fact that you included a picture of a phone in rice! Haha! That never seems to work. At least you had an upgrade!
