Enter the Devil

Meet the Devil. Whoever invented this hateful device needs to be tarred and feathered. It is beyond me, how people can almost worship these things by messing with them instead of caring for their children, watching where they are walking or driving, or paying attention to what is happening in the real world.

I needed a new phone and this demon is what DH brought home. My guide book has 162 pages of things that I can hardly understand or remember from one page to the next. I frustrated over it for hours and hours. I was so exhausted that I slept for 10 hours straight when I gave up last night. DH says I am stuck with it and tells me to 'play' with it. I have no desire ...

So far, I have learned how to make the screen stay on long enough for me to see what the bleep was on it.  I also know that holding it is very uncomfortable when talking. What a cruddy design for a phone. I hope by the time I write my next post that It hasn't sailed out the window or - let's just say, I don't look good in orange.

  1. I'm not fond of cell phones at all. It seems to me people talk over me when I'm trying to say something and other times they cut out and have to call back. I still have my land line phone so I pay double. Just can't convince myself to get rid of the landline.

    1. Our land line was horrible - noisy to the point we couldn't hear people. We got rid of it a couple years ago because the phone company wouldn't fix it.

  2. They are very awkwardly shaped when using as a phone, but most people use them for apps, games, texting, information, reading (just like a kindle). I'm also annoyed that people rarely lift their heads anymore, especially when walking around. They're missing so much. The first thing I learned on mine was how to send a text message and i was barely out the shop door when I did it. Answering a phone call is tricky, so I tap or swipe the ringing screen? I still get that wrong. But I can use the camera and also send a photo with a text message attached.
    Everything else, I don't care about.

    1. The thing rang this morning and I tried everything - tap and swipe every which way. Argh!

  3. There is a delay so taking is a bit different, drives me nuts sometimes, but once you learn the features (not all, but some you will like) you may feel differently...may

    good luck.

  4. I agree that the cell phones are difficult to hold. I am seriously thinking of reverting back to an ordinary mobile phone, one that is a PHONE instead of a plaything. Your new phone seems a bit off, are you sure it's a phone?!!

    1. I guess it's a phone, is supposed to work like my husband's smart phone. (I can't work his either) DH says I am stuck with it.

  5. I have a love/hate relationship with my phone and now I think I can say I like it. I mean I love everything about it. It's like a computer in my hand with a built in phone and camera but the upgrades are a bit much. I was so proud of myself for not upgrading the other day when my son and his fiance' did. I was tempted but my phone does exactly what I need it to do and the increase in price I'd rather spend on fabric! :D

    1. I don't think I'll ever love this thing. I believe it will just be used for calls. Hopefully, I will get that figured out decently in a while. :-)

  6. Just as Angel Stew and Devil's Brew said....I have a love/hate relationship with my iPhone. I love the ease and options that allow me to have a computer with me when I want to check an address, get directions, text a message or make a call BUT I HATE everyone's preoccupation with their phones and their inattentiveness while using them.

    Since you have it and it's not going away, I hope you get used to it even if you only use it as a phone.

  7. -sigh- I hear you! All this new technology. ^&((*&*^$$%^&((

    We have not-so-smart-phones. Thankfully! We don't have a fancy text thing, and we don't want to text. We only use them, between ourselves. Like when we are grocery shopping... We each take a cart, and a list. When one is done, she/he can call the other.

    And for safety, when driving somewhere. Everyone should have a cell phone in their car, me'thinks.

    But I have never really learned to use, even our not-so-smart-phone. Just be able to call!!!!!!!!

    I suggest you do the same.<----*Naughty* me, I know. LOL Your husband would not approve! >,-)

    Gentle hugs,
