I have an iPhone 5 and am not eligible for an upgrade until mid-October, so I did not rush to pre-order the new iPhone 6 or 6+. As a result, I’m going to have to upgrade my iOS to 8 on my iPhone and suffer the consequences, which includes making room for the new operating system – 5 gigs! My phone only has 16, so I’m going to need to do some heavy duty deleting.
So, I started with the text messages, which dated back to 2011. It was a walk through memory lane! First, there were those texts from numbers I didn’t recognize that say “hey” and “yo.” Clearly those were from online dating prospects that never went anywhere because I didn’t even bother to put their name into my phone!
Then there were the next level of commitment folks – the “RogerClubGetaway,” the “MikeOkCupid,” and my personal favorite: “Russianguy.” They had earned a place in my phone, but I needed to make sure I’d know who they were when calling or texting!
The current guy in my life gets a full name – first and last. And I kept his texts. Enough said.
It’s feeling rather cathartic. What do I delete next?
