If you can't figure out something, ask an eight-year-old.
Surprised you didn't get an iPhone, since you used an ipod.
Smartphones can be very handy for a lot of things. Dont give up!
Either the entire world is in your pocket , or there’s just a phone .
(Also - don’t write a check at the market...)
The interface is a bit different than your ipod, but I honestly believe you'll come to like it if you keep on using it. At least that's how it was for me.
It's a really big stretch to go from an iPod to an Android of any flavor. Especially if you've never seen or used one before.
Personally I prefer the iPhone, but to each their own.
Learning the Android would be vastly easier if you had someone that had one in front of you showing you how to use the different features. You could also try using YouTube, but then again, you can't ask a video questions....
Good luck whatever you decide to do.
I can not find my phone half the time and do not care.Its in the house somewhere so it is not really lost.
Me....I got my very first Verizon flip phone one year ago. (I'm 73!)
That's all I want....need.
My wife...on the other hand...has had the smart muther talking device for many years.
It's her entertainment and I want her to have ALL conveniences desired should she be in an uncomfortable/unsafe environment in any context.
Oh...yes, I did give her my phone number too.
I'll keep my flip talker....thank you very much.
The old tube ones had better tone.
A flip phone was good enough for Captain Kirk. Of course Kirk wasn't constantly checking his email, sending texts, surfing the internet, playing games, etc, etc, etc.
Try the palm phone the smallest smartphone. I resisted them too but this phone is phenomenal.
I agree but I recently joined the smartphone club and man I'm loving it. Anything I need to know is in my pocket.
I hear ya!
That's why I still use one of these:
Opera mini runs on it flawlessly, handles all my email accounts, no apps, no nothing, no spying big companies. I can even use it as a modem in emergency on 3G -which in contrast to popular belief is enough to run PL live stream without lagging, but it doesn't support wifi, so I have to cable it up . No biggie. I bought the first one in 2008, I'm on my third one now.
Someone had to post this:
100 bucks on ebay.
You can get a case with an auxillary battery in it that can charge it in case it runs out.
Battery life is really it's only flaw.
But this phone is perfect for people who only use it sparsely, to check an email or two, or maybe tdpri. It is a real smartphone, just smaller. With the battery case it's a great tool. So much better than the flip phone. I've used flip phones since 2008 or so.
If you get lost. It has google maps.
It has sirius xm if you hate ads.
It has all kinds of apps if you need them.
Flip phones do get better service though. And are simple. Unfortunately they are a dying breed, and I think they are being phased out. I had a 20 dollar flip from walmart that was good, but nothing like a smart phone. The software is ancient.
That being said, because flip phones don't use data, the SERVICE is UNBEATABLE. I would get service in weird places where noone else had it.
Get rid. All your eggs in one basket. No, I've got but don't use it.
Would you want a telecaster with built in drums, keyboard, kettle, kitchen sink. Less is more
The old man fist. So much anger, yet so meek at the same time.
I hate to break it to you, but if this is your first smart phone, you are in fact a luddite.
I’m the IT manager and E-mail admin at the library where I work. I build PCs from parts and program scripts for library back office processes. And I’m also a Luddite? That’s some delicious irony right there!
Nope. I’m just a guy who likes his computer to be a computer and his phone to be a phone. Android is needlessly complicated. Everything is buried under five menus. Nothing is intuitive. In short, it’s just bad UI design.
If that makes me a Luddite, so be it!
