I hate my cell phone. I hate it so much I don’t even carry it with me. I can’t even remember my own phone number.
I have a pay-as-you-go plan with Virgin Mobile, which costs me the minimum $16 a month even though I only use about 5 minutes in an average month.
To be honest, I’m just not crazy about phones as a means of communication. I much prefer written or face-to-face communications.
I think I need a phone that is much more than a phone. A smart phone. I want it to have phone capabilities, but I want to use it primarily for other things. Like listening to music or podcasts, checking to see when the bus is coming, getting directions, and sending email.
Do you have a smart phone? Would you recommend it? What do you like or dislike about yours? Which apps do you use? Is there anything I should know about plans before I commit? I’m thinking about canceling my land line, and just relying on a smart phone for all my telephone needs, so the costs will remain roughly the same. Good idea?
