The Cellphone Fairy

Happy Boxing Day! Hope you all had a nice Holiday. We were blessed by both Santa & the Cell Phone Fairy. We are all now connected thanks to a good family plan. My sister-in-law and niece gave us their old cell phones when they up-graded, there was a buy one / get one free on the env2 and I guess I was either lucky or a very good girl to get my new "Smart Phone". (I'm going with lucky) Verizon has a great family plan where we share minutes and it's "free" when you talk "in network".

My Old Phone
My trusty cell phone was just over 5 years old and is considered an antique by today's standards. After years of use (& abuse), it is missing a hinge and the antenna won't stay up anymore. We also live in a "dead zone" and have very poor reception with Sprint. I didn't realize how "underprivileged" I was until yesterday morning!

I Can Hear You Now!

I am now the proud owner of a Verizon Samsung Omnia .

This is Samsung's version of the i -phone. I now know why they call it a "Smart Phone". You need to be a genius to be able to figure all the gadgets & technology this touch-screen phone has to offer!

I feel so privileged! Like I have my own personal assistant. I can get internet & emails, FM radio, keep an electronic calender, phone book, note pad, take photos with a built in 5 mega-pixel camera, play solitare & other games..... the list goes on.

The only drawback is that I need my reading glasses to use many of these functions. I think there needs to be a model made for the over 40 crowd. One with a screen that is easy for older eyes to see.

Perhaps they will call it the "Eye Phone"!
