Today, I realized that I want to return my iPhone 3GS once again for the yellow gradient on the screen as well as the bezel not being flush with the plastic. This got me thinking. I've never had a quality problem with my iPod touch. Then I got to thinking... I pay about $100 each month for this.... and for what? I get to go on the internet EVERYWHERE (woo, like I really need to be checking MacRumors that often). So then I got to thinking... maybe I could enjoy my life a little more if I wasn't paying $100 a month for a phone and instead I could be out doing stuff more productive than worry about having to use my iPhone to justify the price per month. I feel as if I always need to be using it to get my money's worth out of it. If it's just sitting in my pocket, I feel like I'm just throwing money away each month. I love the iPhone features... I really do, but I'm starting to wonder if it's all worth it. After looking at the big picture... this phone seems to be slowly ruining my life. I've never worried so much over an electronic product before (especially not Apple) and I'm sure it's not good. I miss the good ol' days of just carrying an iPod around to listen to music and watch an occasional video. It seems like back then, I used to do a lot more with my time (shoot photography, record skate videos, produce music, juggle, magic tricks, and other various fun activities). For some reason, I feel that if I take focus off the iPhone and do something else, then what the heck do I have the iPhone for? One thing that would make me feel better about all of this is if we could actually pick our plans on the iPhone. If AT&T let us choose whether we want data and choose if we want 450 minutes. I don't even use 50 minutes in a month. Why isn't the iPhone plan customizable to *my needs* like every other phone? ... I think I've almost had it with the iPhone scene... but I don't know yet. I'd probably miss it as soon as I canceled my contract.
