I know. Oops is not a good title for a post with an iPhone photo in it. Regular readers will remember that I killed an iPhone last year (read about it here if you want to be amused!) which I'm still trying to live down. Last night I was just checking Twitter before rolling over and going to sleep and was most excited to read that coco (the footy tipping guinea pig) had mentioned me in a tweet. (This will mean nothing if you are not from South Australia, and will possibly still be unintelligible even if you are!) After telling my Bradley the whole story I turned the screen off and that was it. One dead iPhone. Can't turn it on any more. Some of the more charitable children pointed out that this could hardly have been my fault (unlike the one I took swimming with me), whilst the diehard mother-mockers are bemoaning such a waste of technology on someone with such an obvious plan to rid the world of iPhones.

As for me, I am really sad. I really loved my iPhones (both of them) and I miss them terribly. Most of all though, I miss all you guys "out there" in my virtual world. It was so easy to be updated by my iPhone. Not so easy when I have to find a computer!

oh no, not the iphone,
Is the phone still under warranty? you might have to take it to an Apple shop (they have them in Melbourne but not in Adelaide) to you could try
to reset the iPhone. Press and hold both the Sleep/Wake button and
the Home button for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
I know who Coco is, lol

If and when you get it back up and running - do you play Words with Friends (highly addictive scrabble game)??
