I realized about ten minutes after I arrived at the airport that I'd forgotten my charger at home. I was probably early enough that I could have driven home and gotten it , but since I took the bus that was not even an option.
When I got to Utah, I asked Stephen if he happened to have a charger that would work for my phone. His samsung charger was for a different model and did not fit my phone - curses on proprietary connectors.
My phone's battery can last about two days under normal usage, but I used it for a couple of long calls while I was waiting around at the airport, so it lasted a bit more than a day and a half this time. So after the career fair, I headed off to the mall to buy a charger.
I wandered around the mall a little bit and decided to check if the T-Mobile kiosk had one of the new android phones that I could play around with. I hadn't seen one in person yet and I wasn't sure if I would like the feel of it or if it would work as smoothly as in the demos and ads I've seen. They did happen to have one at the kiosk, but when I powered it on, it refused to do anything without a sim card (it was stuck on the setup screen).
