Verizon is perstering me that I can get a new phone again.
I can probably get a Blackberry or Droid (after discounts and rebates) for only $50.
There's nothing wrong with my old-school LG flip phone and I'm not really looking for a new phone.
I hate text messaging, especially getting into "conversations" via texting. I can multi-task with quick phone calls and I don't even have to look at a keypad. Having all the keys instead of having to triple-hit some letters on my LG might be a little more convenient, but I simply don't like to devote all my attention to typing unless the circumstance warrants it - like passing an address or a note at a time when a phone call is inappropriate.
I know - girls I may like are text-fiends. I need to adapt my game a little. Perhaps write down good flirt-lines for texts (so sad that's what it's coming to). I try to "train ladies" - and friends even - to check their voicemail. I don't want to text you!
As for Facebook? (or even MySpace) Maybe I'd be more inclined to do mobile updates if I had a larger screen to view aps on. But then I don't reallly want anything bigger than my tiny flip-phone to carry around with me. I guess slim would be a good attribute. I might post pics or video then.
SSG? I might get online here via mobile. But since I can already browse the web on my flip phone, and I mostly post in forums here, I like to do so from my desk with my large natural keyboard I type 100 wpm on which I connect to my laptop with a USB cable (I've barely ever used the built-in keyboard on my laptop even).
So I may or may not get a Blackberry or a Droid. Which do you think is better and why?
BTW - they've offered me this deal for over a year now actually - so it's not like I won't have the chance later.
