I have a basic phone. I've had android, windows phones, iphones etc but I still like my basic phone better. I do all my other stuff (fb, cafemom etc) on my tablet.

I just got some kind of smartphone and I hate it. It seems like a waste of money. (Dh upgraded, so I got his old phone)
But it does stuff I would never use, and I don't carry my phone everywhere anyway.

My mother is neither cheap nor poor and has a basic phone sans touchscreen and/or email.  

Good news is... (drumroll please)... she could give two shits what you think of her based on this.

 I have a simple flip phone. I don't consider myself cheap or poor. We have no reason to have a smart phone. We use our phones to talk and text. That is all we need. We don't need nor do we desire to have access to social media, you tube, games etc. at all times. We would rather save our money for other things that are important to us. A smart phone is not high on our list of what we want or need.

lol we do too

We just ordered a new set of NASCAR checks from our bank so that makes me poor, lazy, AND a redneck ;)

I love how some think if some lives a simple life without all the whistles that means they are poor and lazy. Nope. I don't need all the newest things . I don't care if one does or enjoys them but I do not. . .my DH on the other hand does. 

Quoting Kerannmer:

My dad, neither poor nor lazy, has had the same phone for 8 years. Sometimes it's just preference. Not everyone feels the need to conform or "get with the times", lol. You'd probably hate me because I still use actual checks, ya know, from a checkbook? Lol.

My husband too....I actually think he's afraid of my iphone.

Quoting Stephw1110:

Ummm. Some people don't want one ever think of that...we are in no way poor and my husband is just fine with his flip phone.  Give me one good reason he needs a smart phone?  His phone makes phone calls and texts what more does he need?  I'll admit I have a smart phone but mine is purely for entertainment value.  I don't need it either....

uh....  Not all new phones are touch screens.

I find it sad that someone woould think you need to get rid of something that works perfectly fine just because that's what everyone else is doing.

I hope your a troll, because people this stupid shouldn't be allowed to breed.
