We finally moved into megabyte land with new cell phones.
My old Razor conked out and is resting in peace in the bin with all the other old cell phones. I was planning on getting i-phones, but my son, who is the voice of reason, told me that I should at least check out other Androids before paying a ridiculous amount of money for something when I can get pretty much the same ingredients under a different name.
I spoke to a rep with the company ( I had planned on leaving them as soon as my contract was up) and they gave me a great deal on three phones with unlimited talk ( upgrade from sharing 1500 minutes), and text and 200 megabytes(not much from what I’m told). We shut off our data usage and only use wi-fi at home or only when necessary when were out.
I have to admit I love the phone but I have to get used to it and learn how to use it because so far I’ve butt dialed someone, (good thing I wasn’t talking about the person oops! LOL!) transferred all my contacts to my daughters phone (don’t know how that happened) and still haven’t transferred them to my own phone. So I guess that means I’ll have to sit for hours manually entering numbers?
My son (13) is the go to guy for how to operate this complicated thing-a-ma-jig. He’s figured out everything on the phone including police lights and sirens. My daughter who’s 23 complains that the phone is too much for her. She has no apps and no interest in getting any. As for me, the only thing I do is play solitaire when I’m waiting in lines or in the car or whatever. I have no patience and not much interest in all this technology.
