Started out with a flip phone many years ago, used for when on the road, security if something happens, after that one, upgraded to a samsung smart phone, seven or eight years ago, don't live on it, mostly for texting and when on the road. Like the text part, can say what you need too, and done, that way the silent gap doesn't happen when you run out of conversation. Still have a land phone, always have and always will, land phone for long distance, and when i actually need the voice thing, very seldom do calls on my cell......What i hate seeing is 2 people texting and they're in the same room, talk about lacking social skills. Maybe the world just has too much technology. I know there are many that cells are their only device for business and communication, do understand that.
