    Default $MART PHONE$, What am I missing?

    Everyone in our family that has a cell phone uses a $MART PHONE except for me. That includes; SWMBO, our 3 kids, our daughter-in-law, and 2 grandkids. (Our youngest grandkids are 6 and 10 and don't have phones.) I use a flip-phone.

    What am I missing?

    We are switching plans so now would be an excellent time for me to switch to a smart phone. I can't think of any reason to get one.

    Yeah, I suppose I'm just weird but I'm sticking with my flip-phone unless I can find a good reason to switch. Can you think of any good reason?

    I don't have one but one good thing is some of the apps,my daughter & her friends use snapchat maps or something & they can see where each other are,which is a good safety thing,I said to my daughter I could get that & we could know where we both are but she didn't want any of that

    Seriously, it's that life is too short to spend that much time with a phone.

    It really depends on what you want your phone for. I have a PAYG flip phone as all I want it for is in case of emergency. However if you feel anxious leaving your computer, feel the need to tell everyone the most mundane things in your life on every possible social media site, want to take pics especially selfies every where you go then a smart phone it is.

    Cheaper than a camera and is handy for emails on the move, also a damm site easier to text with.

    Well I'm having a cup of tea in my warm cosy bed while typing this...

    Use mine for texts, emails - use for work as self employed. Use as a camera - smaller and lighter than a camera and generally with me - capture those unexpected moments.

    Listen to radio when out, Strava for running - can see if I'm getting better.

    Sometimes use as a phone!!

    This site and Strava are the only social media I use
    Another happy Nutter...

    My son gave me an iphone 6 (is that a smart phone?) because he said he wanted to drag me into the 21st century.

    I must admit being able to facetime him (video conversations) and see our 4 year old Grandson was a real treat (they lived 500+ miles away).

    I know I could do that on my laptop but always had problems.

    I'm a complete tech dufuss but have found the phone much easier to use than our old one. It takes pictures that I can send on without the need for a card thingy (note the tech term) and allows me to check the bank and power supplier accounts without having to turn the laptop on and then spending 20 minutes begging it to do something.

    Oh and I can make pics and text bigger by just moving my fingers apart.
