I have a new phone! I know you have all been dying to call me, and now you can! Although I am sad to see my old one go, it certainly was time. I had my old phone for over 4 years and save for a few minor issues, it served me well. Unfortunately, the antenna broke off in the accident and I had very limited and sporadic service after that. Thank goodness for free upgrades :)
And no, my phone number did not change in the process.
