I am so attached to my iPhone. I’m not saying I couldn’t live without it. But I sure do depend on it quite a bit.
Today my iPhone turned into a brick. One moment I was texting my wife. The next moment… nothing. I couldn’t get it to turn on. I couldn’t get it to charge. The dark screen mocked me as if to say “now what, sucka?”
I held down the power button for at least 30 seconds hoping to see some signs of life. Still nothing.
So I drove to the AT&T store and handed it to a rep. Within 30 seconds my phone was booting up. The rep told me that sometimes the iPhone locks up like any computer. You have to hold the power button AND the round button on the front at the same time to get it to hard reset.
I’ve been accused of being a computer geek, but I didn’t know about this. Needless to say, I am very grateful that my iPhone isn’t a brick.
