I have a dumb flipper but hate other people's smart phones.
Sitting waiting for my car this am at the dealer there are half a dozen
other people in the room and they are all on their smart phones talking
or playing games. One lady must have thought that all of us would like
to hear her phone call so she had it on speaker.
Then at the eye doctors waiting one day there is a sign to turn phones
off. A lady's phone rings, she answers and afterwards I asked her if
she had not seen the sign. She said my phone was off to which I told
her if it was off it would not have rung.
I'm sure we all have other annoying experiences.
And have you noticed that folks are more isolated from
each other now that they have their phones? Hardly
anyone will strike up a conversation whilst waiting in
I still use a flip phone too. When my customers
remark on it, I show them the latch on the back
where I change the battery. Then I show them the
coup de grรขce. I stand up, place the phone on the
chair I was sitting on, then I sit back down on the
chair right on top of the phone. Then I ask them
"Can you do this with your smart phone?" You should
see the looks of horror in their eyes! All funny!

as long as I've had the phones, typically 3 to 4 years. It is an
advantage to be able to just easily put a battery in like you would
in a remote. But phones with a built-in battery, in all cases that
I'm aware of, the battery can be replaced, but it require partly
disassembling the phone or taking it to a repair shop. But in
return, we have very slim, light really nice phones.
Me either. I often forget I have my ZTE in my back pocket, get in
the car and sit down. Nothing has happened. What's alleged to
