New Smart Phone
After many years of see-sawing back and forth over which new smart phone was a good replacement for our First Generation iPhone (yes, first generation), we finally decided to go with a Samsung Galaxy S5. We already had our account at AT&T, so we kept the account but had to contract for two years.
It's pretty cool. Definitely cooler than our iPhone I. And it's larger too, something both of us need really bad these days.
It's taking a bit of adjusting to the latest Android technology but we're coming around.
We get so few calls on our cell phone that when it rings (Rooster Crowing ring tone, naturally), we look at each other with that, "What do we do now?" look. It's even funnier when we're in the car with the cell phone and car phone speakers ringing at the same time.
And being as though I'm driving, I'm not about to answer the thing. By the time I collect myself enough to turn off the ringing sound coming out of the car speakers by using the button on the steering wheel, Judy has pressed the wrong button on the phone and we're disconnected anyway. Fortunately, nine out of ten of the calls are from someone trying to sell us something. If it's someone we know, they know enough to call us back and be patient while we figure it out.
Maybe the new phone is smart enough to recognize that old people are using it and automatically switches to "Old Phart Mode" or something.
Heck, we still talk loud because our brain says the caller is from far away and may have trouble hearing us.
We didn't buy any accessories yet but if the standard battery starts to lie, I might upgrade to one that doesn't lie. I hate it when the phone says it won't rain and then it rains. Lying SOB!
I'll keep you posted on our progress.
