Left Dangling (Dongling??)

Like a lot of Realtors, I’ve been eager to upgrade to the new iPhone 5.

The catch?

The adapter — called a “dongle” — that lets me use my phone as a Smart Key to access electronic lockboxes doesn’t fit the new phone.

The fix:  essentially, “an adapter for the adapter” — a new dongle that the old one fits into, that in turns fits into the new iPhone.

Thanks, but no thanks.

Especially in Minnesota in winter, we Realtors have got enough to juggle getting clients into homes already.
