I couldn't even tell you what it is, but I can actually check my email, Google stuff, watch music videos, etc. I think I even took a couple of pictures with it, though I haven't tried to upload them to my computer yet. I'm hoping it will have decent coverage on the road.

I didn't say it was a "smart phone." I don't even know what that is.

Do you know how the smartphones look like? Have you ever seen any smartphone or tablet device? Is there anything that came after smartphones?

What will come after smartphones? Surely you know that a company co-founded by Elon Musk, has the goal of building computers into our brains... I do not consider this progress. If we do nothing to stop burning the resources of our earth, the next step will be to be back to the club and the stone age.

Not only me, but everyone will agree with it. They say for 6G implementation, an electronic chip will be fixed into the human brain. WHY SO? Why would we continue next, after next after next ...this unending episodic business greed? No need for 6G, if it needs to put some electronic objects in the brain.

@Philricmind You are right, they are imposing dangerous new electronics that we do not need at all. We do not even have 5G here, the population voted to block it.

@TheHorse I hope so, my phone gets a good coverage when we go to Italy. I never used it in other EU countries.

I had my first cell phone in December 1975. It was one of the old rotary dial phones with a really long cord so it could reach into the cell for us to use it.

You must be a "true" rebel. I was only faking it for the last 20 years or so.

@JudyEv Do elaborate. I am glad to have a "modern" phone, but wonder when the powers that be will jack up the price or otherwise try to rip me off. Said phone might be helpful if my tire explodes in Utah and I'm too dehydrated to change the tire by myself.

For me, everything went to sh*t in about 1975.

I have had a flip phone for several years. I thought it smart, as I actually talked to people when I was out and about. But the coverage was terrible.

My son gave me what he called a smart phone. I’m trying to learn to use it.. They should come with instructions. I have learned to take pictures. I love that. I Got on Mylot with it but I had to sign in and I didn’t have my pass word with me.

You're lucky. You work with kids. They can teach you everything you need to know about your phone.
