    My phone is a Motorola Tundra, and is the best phone I ever had, turn up AT&T dropped that phone. I found a place where I could score a new one, so I did. My brother asked if I was sure I wanted to do that, because one day he said I will have to get a smart phone, because all banking and such will be done on a smart phone. Truth be known I would rather eat a huge plate of hot steaming cow crap with dog crap sprinkled on top than own a smart phone. Is my brother right? I mean I really don't want to eat a plate of cow crap but I sure don't want a smart phone neither:alex::faint:

    Mark, the various consumer services will offer old folk like me the old-fashioned way of doing business for the foreseeable future.

    Don't spend money to be trendy.

    I'd get me a smartphone if I was smart enough to use it.

    That's not what your Smartphone says.

    But I don't have a smart phone. I did buy one of those sliders though to text with and it has a touch screen, so it is about as bad. If I hold it right up to my ear it has a tendency to change things while I am on the phone, especially when I am trying to pull up my voice mail. plus, my fingers are too big to text easy on the smallish keyboard, I need to let my fingernails grow a bit.

    You need to be a fourteen-year-old girl to operate the device properly.

    My smartphone is smarter than me but it doesn't talk back to me. I can make calls, text, go online (painfully slowly), and about the only app I use is the one to find cheap gas prices, which doesn't work as well as I'd like. Sadly, it has not been able to set the gas price to what I want.

    I trained a guy with a smart phone here a while back. He had a machine gun noise app, and an app to change your voice, and one that we could make our own rap songs with. It was a wonder we got any work done. It was fun to watch the sergeant jump when we played machine gun sounds over the PA in the car. :supergrin:

    A rotary dial phone perhaps? I have seen a few kids try to use one and be totally lost.
