I've been due for an upgrade for about 3 months. I was getting antsy to get a new phone. Apparently, they don't make descent phones anymore that aren't smart phones.
I went back and forth with getting one for the last 3 months. I checked my e-mail and sometimes facebook on my old phone when we would go camping
I called Verizon and threw a fit that I wanted a limited data package if I was going to have to get a smart phone. That did not work. But we were able to lower our shared minutes. We also switched the account to Matt's name and are getting a military discount. (15% I believe) So, it's really not going to cost anymore for me to have a smart phone.
So yesterday, I decided to make the plunge. I took an early lunch, went to the Verizon store, picked out the LG Vortex, and was sent on my way. I got back to work and had a fit. Let me back track a little bit. My old phone was all touch screen so I thought I'd be fine with one that was all touch screen. So anyway, this Vortex, the touch screen was super sensitive. It was constantly spelling the wrong words. And I gave up on trying to figure the damn thing out.
I called Verizon.
After work, I went back and got the Ally.
The good news is I can text on it and I was able to answer a phone call. The bad news is I won't have time to really mess with it until Sunday. I think I should be able to figure out the basics. I'm not 70 years old and I'm not mentally challenged but these new fangled contraptions are no joke.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
