I still have one of those clamshell phones. I still use it for real-time voice chat and not really for much else than that. I have young’un co-workers who, impossibly, were born after Ghostbusters came out who mock me for saying things like “I’m either here, in the lab, at home, or with Maribou. I don’t need a smartphone.”
Well, one of the young’uns recently got the Samsung 6 something or other (a smartphone about the size of a toilet seat). He gave me his old Samsung 4 something or other.
All that to say: I need a carrier and I have heard nothing but horror stories about everybody. AT&T is the devil, Verizon is worse, and T-Mobile is even worse than that. Or maybe I’ve mixed up the exact order there.
Anyways, this weekend, I will be going out to get myself a sim card so I can do stuff like “use my new phone to make phone calls”.
Who do you use? What smartphone advice do you have? Please keep in mind that I’ve never had one before and the only thing I’ve done with it so far is download Plants vs. Zombies 2 using the WiFi. (But I haven’t played it yet.) If you’ve got a smartphone rant and you have been holding it back because everyone you know has heard it, know this: I haven’t heard it and I would like to.
I’m hoping to get a crash course in the stuff that all y’all learned years ago.
So… what are you doing this weekend?
