In today’s age of technology, it’s hard not to be connected.

We have new phone models which are released on an almost monthly basis. Each cellular phone manufacturer adding more features or better upgrades on current features to their current models, or coming out with a better model.

For us as consumers, it’s absolutely fabulous being introduced to newer technologies that have come to make our lives simpler and easier to manage.

Micro managing your office from a thousand miles away is no longer a challenge and with the advent of wifi technology, it’s a breeze!

Never has keeping in contact with family, friends and work colleagues been this easy.
With social networks such as facebook, twitter, linked in, and so many others, it’s hard to disappear even if you tried to.

For someone who’s been fortunate enough to use BlackBerry since it’s release in South Africa, I’ve become rather good at solving the easiest of problems when friends and family can’t quite understand what’s wrong their phone.

It just had to happen recently where my phone decided it was time to take a break from all that I do with it, and konked out!

My heart just broke.. ??

The best thing about BlackBerry as we all know, is BBM!!

Having been without my BB recently for about a month now, I’ve come to realize just how addicted I have been to it.

Instead I’ve had more time to blog, research, study, tweet, and cook and bake!
Yes, I’ll be featuring recipes soon again. ?

Ok, back to the topic…

So deprived of my BB contacts and chats and thousands of messages, I’ve had rather a lot of time to explore my iPhone as well.

Thanks to Cell C, a South African mobile network, I’ve been able to enjoy using the many apps available.
If you’re from another country, please understand that for us South Africans, data usage is quite rather expensive as mobile companies here charge us a fortune every month. Cell C is the cheapest and has the best data charges available currently.

Since I’ve been using the iPhone… Let’s just say i’ve not being missing my BB so much.

Although with the BBM app that was released recently, I’m not even sure I want my BB back!

Oh well… I guess I’ll see what happens when it does get returned to me…
