    Today, my iPhone 3GS took a dive off a counter that left all of the hardware buttons, besides the home button, unresponsive.

    Examining the top for damage, I noticed the SIM card, and thinking about how I'll be needing that when my iPhone 4S arrives, I realized that my SIM card is somehow the soul for the body of my iPhone.

    Steve was a Buddhist that believed in rebirth. I almost feel like my iPhone 3GS is going to be reborn, with its soul in the body of an iPhone 4S, for serving I, it's God, well over the past 27 months.

    Thoughts?

    Is the SIM card the soul of an iPhone? Does this mean that Sprint, Verizon, and other CDMA iPhones are soulless monsters?

    That must be some potent **** you got there.

    Maybe you might want to lay off that for a bit?

    Legend claims that Timothy Leary had a similar experience back in 1965 while watching a "My Mother the Car" episode on TV.

    Yeah, phones are pretty useless without their SIMs so in an abstract way, sure, it's the "soul" of the phone. But literally? LOL!


    If any reincarnation has happened here it was the death of restraint and rebirth of tech lust... posed as an "accidental" dive for that 3S. ;)

    My first thought was surprise that this thread is not from waloshin.

    My second thought is maybe you had in mind that they could replace Siri's voice with Steve Jobs' voice, and you could say, "Steve, what's the weather like in Cupertino?"

    The latter would be pretty cool.

    The iPhone 4 n 4S use micro-sims - in other words the 3gs sim card will be sliced down or replaced by the carrier......

    It really was an accident, I'd already preordered my iPhone 4S several days before hand.
