Any day now my ancient NOKIA basic
cell phone may conk out and I may be stuck
having to use a SMART phone.
Don't want a smart phone.
Don't need it to take pictures, play music, tell me
where I am, buy things online, play games, brew
coffee, make a sandwich and other amazing feats
they perform besides boring old sending and
receiving phone calls.
I'll accept taking VOICE messages and stashing
useful phone numbers.
The charge can last as long as possible.
The monthly fee can be as low as possible.
I need a cell phone to call for help, a cab, or to say
I'm on my way, or running late.
And to call my Mom when I'm out shopping
and see something she might like or if they're out of
what she wants. Otherwise I socialize in person,
by regular phone, email, and sometimes FaceBook.
And I LIKE it this way.
Do not assume I am technologically
challenged. I love my MAC and use it to do all
sorts of stuff on and off line and am always
learning more. I just don't need a pocket NASA/
entertainment system to make or receive infrequent
ordinary phone calls.
Tried to sign in to ATT's Mobile website a short while
ago to look for the dumbest phone they have.
They couldn't find my account. (No trouble finding my
account when there's a bill).
Dumb phone company.
Just wish they offered a dumb phone.
