Phones, cell phones, rotary phones, pay phones, all of them necessary but irritating at times. I have no land line as they call it, only a cell phone. The cell is necessary and portable so I don’t see the need for a stationary land line. I have a Samsung and most of the time I have no problems with it. It has Google and unfortunately Google wants everything else on my phone connected through it, such as games, game playstore, maps, search, video, music, etc. I can’t imagine how desperate I would have to be to watch a movie on a small screened cell phone.
Lately I’ve been having problems. Today especially, it would not recognize my touch, whether light or strong or held longer. It caused a problem when I was talking to my sister two thousand miles away and she couldn’t hear me. I pushed the speaker button but nothing happened. People around me here text instead of call. The small keyboard is not handy for arthritic fingers. My grandson came over and his phone is a Samsung galaxy note? It has a larger keyboard, letters separated more, so less chance of hitting the wrong one, and other features. My son, his uncle, gave it to him when my son bought a new phone.
Now I am looking for a new one. I think a refurbished, unlocked one may save money. I thought if I purchased an iPhone instead of a Samsung I could coordinate between the iPad I have and the phone. I was told today my iPad is too old for that convenience. So here is my dilemma. I need help on what type to get and is there any difference in them besides the amount of GB you want and the visual effects? I would appreciate advice. At the moment I have the Straight talk no contract plan and like it. I could go through them, but still can’t decide on what phone would be best. And I have IOS 10 on the iPad, does that make a difference on a phone? And all the different numbered versions, is there a big difference between 4 and 7 or 8, and what is it? Help! 😱
