And It Went Tumbling Down…

The LG G2 the shattered face Edition

On Christmas eve I broke down and purchased a new cellphone. I was planning on getting a phone but when a friend could not get information off my old Samsung HTC because the cord was not connecting. I looked shocked yet I knew the end was past near, it was OVA! I was simply told, “Go get a phone!”

I was so excited to get the newest phone on the market, the LG G2! I am an Android Woman, so this phone fit the bill for my needs. Sleek, Solid, and Sound this LG G2 was  a great choice for a Smartphone. As the salesman spoke of all its bells and whistles, I read up on and 0 compared it to the Galaxy 4.  The salesman had his own LG G2 in his pocket, it fit perfectly and he did not mind flashing it at me to close the deal. After some 45 minutes, I was studying and contemplating, don’t judge the madness in my method!

In an effort to add on to the  sale of the phone, I was offered this contraption to hold the phone and protect it from all hurt, harm and danger. I politely declined. The case costed more than what I was paying at this point of sale, so I would go online to find a case and car charger.

I left the store and realized I did not even find out how to answer the phone. I needed to get home and pack for my trip to LA (lovely Augusta) for the holidays. I went home had  an enjoyable holiday and learned little about my new toy.

New Year’s Day, I decided to  stay the course of my commitment to keep my body moving  and went for a morning walk at Rose park. I had added the app to track my time and distance, on my new phone. I was so proud of  myself for going the distance and finishing the course. I went to do some stretching and cool down when that LG G2 decided to tumble out of my pocket.  The face of the screen had a diagonal  crack line that ran right to left. I was crushed and kicking myself for not getting that case.

Since it was a holiday, the stores were opened but I was directed to the insurance claim company for assistance. I have insurance so it could be replaced.once I went through the prompts on the phone  only to be sent to the website to make a claim. I was looking at 48 hours  or longer (due to the holiday) with no communication in quick access. How would I make it?

Well I was being tested for endurance. At first I thought I would go crazy. Well I survived, I got a new phone after 5 days! I struggled but I made it through! The tumble was my trying time, that turned in to my testimony of patience in the process. Yes I did get a case for covering  and protection.
