I am seriously having withdrawals. We went in and did it last night. We downgraded the iphone. I don’t think I will ever forget the look on the guy’s face that was helping us. I seriously think he thought I had two heads.
“Downgrade? Really? From the iphone?”
“Yes, we are looking to lower our bill. (Among other things!)”
“Ok….this hardly ever happens….”
(Really Dude? Do I look like I want or need your commentary?!)
I have to admit that it was way more fun GETTING the smartphone than it was going the other way. And while all the positives of getting rid of it still are positives (less time wasting, distracted, etc.). I really REALLY miss the calendar, the ease and quickness of texting, my running GPS, music, and having it all on one gadget. Sigh.
I know I have to give it more than one day….but my 4 year old self really REALLY wants to reverse time and forget I ever had this crazy idea!
Yep. My idea. I think I’m going to keep my next one to myself until I REALLY think it through!

Hi Lori! We don't know each other, but I was pointed in the direction of your blog a few months back (via your DumBell Fitness success story). I've been following your blog without having introduced myself! (I promise I'm not a creep!)I'm Karissa (mother of 1, soon-to-be 2), stationed here at Pearl Harbor with my hubby and I have also been re-evaluating and talking about the similar things on my blog lately. These past few months I've really been trying to "live in the moment" with my son and concentrate on getting some of these "distractions" under control. Looking forward to hearing how things go on your end with the iPhone amputation 🙂 Good luck!
Wow!!! So nice to "meet" you!! I figure I'm not the only one that struggles with these issues – thank you for sharing! It's only been a few days – and I have to admit, it's harder than I thought! Still discussing turning it back on! 🙂 we shall see!
Whether you turn it back on, or leave it off- your new outlook is a success!
Yeah, we are still discussing… It would definitely be with more time off and leave some of te apps uninstalled! 😉
