This high tech stuff is getting to be too much for an old man like me.

    I renewed our cell phone contract and got my new phones today. I picked the highest priced ones I could get that were free after the rebate. These things have cameras, video recorders, voice dialing, e-mail, play music and all sorts of stuff. I ain't even figured out what all my old phone did and I had it for 2 years. I think I have figured out how to make a phone call on it though.

    Maybe the cell phone companies should concetrate more on my being able to make a call in the middle of know where (where you need it) than all the fancy stuff. JMO

    Ya know, the sad part is, I don't think you can find a cell phone now days that is only a phone.

    I can only guess at what the Swiss have built in to their cells.

    The Wife and I got new phones a couple weeks ago like that.I can't imagine what use I will have for most of that stuff.The only picture I will be sending is if I'm being dragged onto some UFO.I probably wouldn't have time to read the directions in that case,so on second thought I probably won't use anything but the phone. :)

    If you check on page 1,232 of the "quick overview" in you instruction booklet,your phone comes with its own probe...no need to wait for the aliens:love-big: :love-big:

    Now see!!! That is exactly what I was talkin about. Those darn Swiss will add three knife blades, a fork and spoon, a file, hole punch, mini roach clip, toothpick AND a preemptive probe. :eek:

    Al'yall must be crazy. My sweet wife's been trying to hang one of those cell phones on me for 5 or 6 years now. I didn't need one for 25 years, so why now? She got kinda perturbed at the nickname I give it - 'extend-a-b!!!h'. Once the bruise wore off and the swelling went down, I could still see her poking it at me, but I have still successfully avoided having one.
