outwitted by a smart phone

I got my first smart phone today. it is a Samsung, I think called a victory light. I have a regular dumb phone, which most people call the obamma phone, not knowing that it was actually introduced during the bush administration.

I only get 250 minutes a month on it, and it just won't let me call after I use them up. half the time, voice mails, and retrieving them, use up more than half my minutes. last month, I used up ALL the minutes by the 20th of july, and then my 'land' line was down too and I had no way of making ANY calls. I thought I would just go find a pay phone, but there are no pay phones anymore. I guess they have eliminated them because of drug deals.

not wanting to be phoneless again, I looked into cheap alternatives, or additions. it is WAY expensive to add minutes to the obamma phone, and none of the pre-pay burner type phones was right for me either. then I found freedompop. it gives you 250 free minutes a month, which, in addition to my obamma phone should work.

there is some free data and email too, but I never use that stuff on a phone. I am on the internet on my computer enough. the only 'catch' is that you need an android phone to use it, so I hadda buy one with the service (the Samsung).

I have the phone here in front of me now and it is kicking my butt. I figured out how to make a phone call on it, but it gave me a LOT of trouble. the whole 'swiping' thing is eluding me.i accidentally found the camera, but I couldn't get out of camera mode without turning the thing off and back on again. I have no idea how to get back in camera mode.

this thing is sleek and pretty, and it seems really cool, but I hate it. ever since seminary screwed me over I have NO patience to learn new things. i suppose it is time I step into the 90s and use the smart phone, but I think I will just use it when I have to. it is bigger than my obamma phone too, and looks like something that will break more easily.

my is bringing me over a desktop computer to fix that she has problems with. I am good with desktops. I will ask her to help me to learn to use this thing. my all have smart phones.

I guess this one is my arraignment. my lawyer is petitioning to drop the charge to a misdemeanor.

Did it really take a smartphone to outwit you?

I find it much easier than that

Never went away; you just have to live with it as a mature man.
