Old school phones...

I normally love technology...but I hate the smartphone thing. I totally do not want to be connected with an electronic leash to the internet, etc all the time. While I love the net on my computer and in the home, and I love my ereader and such...when it comes to my phone, I really just need it to call people.

Anyone else remember (and miss) the old Nokia green screen phones...or better yet, no cell phones at all?

  • those were the days. Nowadays, the phones are so complicated, that by the time I learn all the funtions on one phone, it's time to get a new one! The blackberry I have now is the first smart phone I've had. The only reason I wanted it was becasue I didn't have much time to catch up with my e-mails at home and I have a lot of waiting time while dd is in her extracuricular activities. So I thought, a phone with internet would be great. Wrong!!!!!!! I hate the phone and can't even use the browser on it, becasue the text is so small and when I press the magnifying glass to zoom in, the screen goes mostly black so I can't read. But, I am able to stay on top of my e-mails now.

  • We haevn't upgraded to internet for our phones and so far we're fine. I'm afraid once we get it, we'll think we can't live w/o it.
