For the last year, I’ve monitored every major news outlet and techy site in cyberspace. I’ve even stalked Facebook and Twitter hoping to uncover any sign of the iPhone coming to Verizon Wireless. You’re probably thinking I’m the one obsessed with the iPhone, but it’s not me. It’s my husband, Brandon. He’s absolutely obsessed with all things that happen to have a brand name starting with a lowercase “i” in front of them, created by Apple, and introduced by none other than Steve Jobs.
He’s watched co-workers, friends, and sadly his 11 year old cousin, flaunt their iPhones in his face, all while praying that Verizon and iPhone would become one someday. Well that day is finally here. On January 11th, Verizon made the long awaited announcement that the iPhone will be available to preorder for existing customers on February 3rd and new customers on February 10th. My detective work paid off, along with my begging and pleading, because I convinced my husband to not jump ship and head over to the other guys.
So I’m finally getting peace of mind. My days of hearing Brandon’s infomercials and public service announcements over why he needs have an iPhone are numbered. And he’s finally getting an iPhone!
