I don't care for cell phones of any type.
Owned a cell since '91 and I'm never turning back that clock!
All the people used to scoff at me for having one that now conveniently don't remember it but flaunt their big fancy phones in my face. Heck, I realized how they should be used for kids even and gave my daughter one when she was about 12 for personal safety before ANY of the other kids had one and people thought we were completely nuts yet soon their kids had them too, now they all do. I'm always ahead of the digital herd ;)
IMO not having a cell is as bad as not having a smoke alarm, fire extinguisher, etc. as it has literally been that much of a life saver repeatedly.
It has saved my bacon many times and probably saved lives when I had cops on the phone following a DUI until they found us, he almost hit a biker, or the day the xmas tree fell off a someone's truck on the Bay Bridge and was spinning around with cars flying everywhere to miss it and I got emergency services right away, so on and so forth.
Hopefully it'll be in my pocket to dial 911 when the BIG ONE hits so I don't just croak.
Hope you don't get cataracts then because you'll quickly find these things beat using a regular magnifying glass as you can zoom in and then zoom in more if needed just as one application.
The whole point of a cell phone is that you no longer NEED to make a shopping list
Oh I understand all too well as I just did exactly that in 2 stores since I went shopping and the wife didn't want to go out so she was looking at the specials at home, loading coupons on my Safeway card from home for stuff to get, and if I can't tell which is the right item to buy I take a picture of it and send it via text messaging for her to check out before I buy it. ... OR ... I take a picture of the whole shelf of stuff so she can see and pick which one from the comfort of our sofa while me, the handicap guy with the bum foot riding on the cart in the store is out doing the shopping.
Makes perfect sense to me :)
