An ode to a 3GS

I’ve had an iPhone 3GS for nearly three years now. When I first got it, it was the best phone since sliced bread.A few months later the iPhone 4 came out and the iOS update made my phone a bit slow and shite. And with the advent of Android and 4S my wee 3GS is a tad dated (e.g. Lack of HD camera and video in 4:3!)

Days from retirement

I’m awaiting delivery of an iPhone 5 and with its snazzy camera, Suri, five rows of icons etc I won’t know myself

Note, I had four 3GS in that time.

The first one I had the longest, about 18 months, until I dropped it on the Dublin Road (I was drunk). That wrecked the screen and made it part on the side.

The second one lasted a few weeks. It was a refurb from the insurance company and didn’t work properly.

The next one lasted a bit longer, another refurb, though it still had troubles. It sometimes thought it fit to drop coverage. Its fate was sealed when it fell out of my pocket at a Blink 182 gig at true Odyssey. Someone found it and answered my call looking for it, but the screen was wrecked!

The last one was fine until the morning after a drunken night out I woke to find the screen wrecked! No idea what happened! Phone still working fine but time for an upgrade!

I might even start a fresh and not reboot my old photos to the new phone, if it’s an option, and be picky with what apps I keep (do I really need the bongos app?). But here is a photo gallery of adventures my 3GS and I got into.
