I need a new cell phone. About 3 years ago I got the free upgrade phone when I renewed my contract.
It was actually a downgrade. And I hate it, but I could never justify spending money on a phone. Something I carry in my purse as a just in case the kids need me when I am not at home. And mostly I ignore it. Something that is very aggravating to above mentioned kids.
But the buttons don't work half of the time. I can't assign every one in my contact list their own ring tone, something that is essential to me. How else am I going to know who I am ignoring? I can only have about 5 messages in the inbox before it tells me that I don't have enough memory and I need to delete something. Really? I need to delete a message I haven't even read yet so I can receive another one I won't read? And then I have to go through about 20 screens to find the place to delete the message.
The only good thing I can think to say about my phone is this- it was free.
I have T-Mobile. I was thinking of getting the new G-3 Myphone. Jessica said, "Um, Mom? I am thinking it might be a bit, how do I put this? technologicaly advanced for you."
Should I be offended?
I'm going with the story that she thinks it will have more aps than I will need or use.
I was thinking of that phone so I could do research and junk like that (read blogs and update twitter, really) while waiting for Brandi at soccer practice or games.
Here are my requirements for a phone:
- Assign everyone their own ring tone
- easy and intuitive to use
- larger memory than I have now
- ability to put phone on silent/vibrate mode
- easy to navigate menues
- ability to make and receive phone calls
Things I don't care about
- tons of aps
But if it could sweep and mop the floor and do the dishes....
So knowing I am not going to switch from T-mobile, tell me what you like about your phone and why I should get one like it, and why I would use it.
