Why I Wish the iPhone Was a Flip Phone

We were on vacation in Fiji.

Our flight got delayed, so I called my parents (who were picking us up) to let them know the new plan. Hung up. Stuck the phone in my pocket. Went for a walk. Didn’t think about the phone for almost an hour. Pulled the phone out of my pocket. Discovered that it had redialed my father … 50 minutes ago. At $3.49 per minute. So we got this little gem in the “voice roaming” section of our bill:



I can’t really blame anyone but myself since I didn’t think to hit the lock button, but still … ouch.

I’d love it if Apple came out with an iPhone Flip.
