I have been ripped on by all my coworkers here at WYCD for at least a year now, as the ‘only one’ who did not own a smartphone.’ But I didn’t care if I was the butt of their jokes, my frugal side said “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” and my 6-year-old Verizon LG phone worked perfectly fine….until last week! I spilled a cup of water on ‘old trusty’ and it was on the fritz, not working properly and I knew it was gonna flat-out die, and sooner than later too! So I caved in and ordered a new ‘smartphone’ and now I am feeling like a total dum-dum! I like to think of myself as pretty sharp, but this phone IS smarter than me for sure! Am I the only one who feels this way?
Well I know at least ONE other person who feels the way I do, and that is my husband Jeff! We both got the same kind of smartphone, a Stratosphere, so we could teach each other any new tricks we figured out! We just got them last night and activated them, which in itself seemed kind of daunting. But the customer service rep was SO patient and walked us through everything and answered all our questions! We have a bazillion NEW questions today, sure wish that Verizon lady would have given me her home phone like I asked her to!
Since I am one of the last ones here to ‘get with the program’…please tell me, what are some of YOUR favorite apps, that are really helpful? FREE is my favorite f-word too…hint-hint!
