On January 9, 2007 Apple unveiled their future cell phone market buster, the iPhone. I wanted it. But I knew I couldn’t switch from Verizon to AT&T, especially since I couldn’t force my Dad to switch and I couldn’t afford it. So I waited.
Hopeful rumors stormed tech sites for months and years without the iPhone ever being available on Verizon, and even though I did get married and have my own account switching to AT&T while nearly all my contacts shared Verizon-to-Verizon minutes with me. So I waited.
Tired of waiting for rumors of a Verizon iPhone to come true, in October of 2010 I decided to upgrade my Blackberry Tour to a Droid X. Only to hear the news three months later that Verizon finally had the iPhone.
Since the iPhone has been on Verizon, my wife, father, mother, sister, sister-in-law, brother-in-law, best friend, best friend’s wife, pastor, group’s pastor, student minister, nextgen pastor, scc campus pastor, marriage pastor, and my ex-Droid X wielding boss to name a few of my friends who were able to experience the joy of the iPhone on Verizon. Oddly enough I actually had to help a few of those lucky friends setup their phones. And if you know me at all, I completely understand the supremacy of Apple in the tech market—as I write this post on a MacBook Pro.
And finally my waiting has ended.
