    I see things are a little different now and would consider a phone without all the extra stuff. I'm leaving voice messages and I know I would get a faster response with a text.

    Any suggestions?
    Lori I have a tracfone smart phone as do my 2 kids. we love them they are as good or better then your fancy $700 I phone and are pay as you go. We can do anything any of those phones do at a fraction of the price. Phones run around $100 and you can buy a mins card in several denomination sizes depending on your usage.

    Hey Carlie....you are right. I've got a Samsung Galaxy 4, a very old phone by today's standards. It works for me and I am one of those who don't feel the need to pay upwards to a $1000 for a new phone.
    I think those new Apple 7 I-phones are over $900. Holy Cow! that is craziness!
    When I first got my phone, I was at the hairdressers and the phone rang. She asked me if I needed to get that, I told her no, I don't know how to answer it and I will try to call them back later. She cracked up. Took me a while to figure out how to answer it, and frankly, I had to ask my sister.

  4. Thanks Carlie Wolf thanked for this post

    Thanks April. I really should get one for emergencies like a flat tire. If I go out to my step dd's there isn't a gas station for thirty miles.

    OMGoodness! I have a friend just like that... She takes every opportunity to badmouth any kind of technology... It's very irritating... She has a computer..,and a smart phone...I think....and hates both.... I could just see her behaving the same way that woman in your line did...

    I have a trac phone for emergencys and only have it one when I am away from home. I rarely use it and most of the time forget to put it on. There are more and more places that have a sign saying We will not wait on you if you are talking on your cell phone at the check out or service counter. I think that makes a lot of sense. It is just rude to keep talking when they are there to wait on you. You should be giving them your undivided the same as you expect them to give to you. That is just my opinion. Sometimes when people are talking I don't think they realize that everyone with 10 feet can also here there conversation. Just hope it isn't personal to the other party they are talking to.

    I don't answer phone unless it's kid in UK. I might answer the other half - he also has a separate ring tone. Businesses have their ring tone and pests and unknowns have a very loud version of "Cocaine"

    I have a new phone and I use the camera more than anything else. I have all the Audubon Guides plus other guides to flora and fauna in the area. I also have astronomy programs.

    All social apps are gone. So is 95% of Google and all of Moto.

    If you want to know what flower that is, yes I will whip out the phone.

    I also have the block tool for quilting.

    I have the phone customized to suit me.

    I work with a group of young women, about the same age as my children. I find it highly amusing when everyone sits down in the staff room around the table at break time and pull out their phones and start madly texting, googling or whatever. I very quickly got tired of trying to make conversation so now I bring out my crossword puzzle book and relax with that. They also think it is incredulous that my old phone won't receive emails or photos, it can take photos...it just gets a massive heaadache if you try to send one to it!!!!!...seems using it just for ringing and texting is quite absurd these days!

    I think the thing that bothers me most about cell phones are people who text while driving. Its dangerous not only to others but themselves. Even though its against the law here you see people doing it all the time.
