Ya know maybe I'm simply just a Luddite but I just don't get the attraction people have to these do it all cell phones. I don't want to take pictures, surf the net, text people.

I want to make a friggin phone call with a phone. Yes, I know that sounds strange that I don't want to control satellites in orbit from a mobile phone but thats how it is.

Don't take this the wrong way Bete but I've found usually it's the people with simple lives that want a simple phone. I need my phone to browse internet so I can check my stocks, bank account, emails and whatever else I need to carry on my busy lifestyle. Sometimes I envy the people who only need their phone to make a call .

Understood and no offense taken. My investments are handled by my brokerage, I know what's in my bank account and email is a giant time suck.

like rage is not...at least it's more fun in here

I need my do everything phone, I'm trying to start my guitar building business, and the internet is the primary means for getting my name out there, so I need email and web browsing, so my blackberry is my savior. Txt messaging isn't as important to me, but right now, when I'm not near a computer, my blackberry is my business.

The battery usually dies before I ever have to call anyone or even receive a call on my cell.

I have an older friend at work with the same attitude. He also is still stuck on his 27" tube TV and refuses to buy an LCD.


-Text messages save time. I'd rather send a simple text than get sucked into a phone call. Why make a phone call just to say "I'll be home at 5:30"?
-Taking a picture somewhere and sening it instantly to someone can come in real handy "here honey - pick the one you want"
-Internet Access on the go (including mobile maps) can come in real handy. My wife sent me a text while I was out last weekend that she would love it if I brought home some pizza so I pulled up the Little Ceasors website. The iPhone makes any phone numbers a hyperlink so I just pulled up the store and clicked on a button. I didn't have to call 411 to get a number or wait around at the place for 15 minutes because I couldn't order until I got there.
-I had an eBay auction last week that closed with a bad buyer who violated the listing requirements. I was able to kill the auction and send out "2nd chance" offers while I was at work (eBay blocked at work). The next highest bidder excepted and made an immediate payment five minutes later.
-I was stuck waiting at a tire shop for 45 minutes last week. I pulled out my phone and did a little web surfing and game playing to kill the time. The time went by really fast.
-I heard a new song on the radio last week and used Shazam on the iPhone to ID it and when I got home I bought it. Otherwise I would have forgotten about it.
(etc)

Long story short: Smart phones come in handy for a lot of things and can make life a lot easier and better.
