But Verizon’s increasingly-expensive and restrictive services bring thoughts of the good old days when one used a phone for one, simple purpose: making and receiving phone calls.
Smart phones are clunky, difficult to use as a phone, and increasingly complex. All I — or most of us — probably need is a simple phone with actual buttons for the number keypad. Something that flips open and lets you talk with the person on the other end.
I can live without email on my phone and I don’t need to surf the web in restaurants or meetings and I sure as hell don’t need to be trying to negotiate the menus of such an instrument while driving.
So I’m looking at an inexpensive TracFone with pay-as-you go service.
Verizon, care you hear now?
Serves you right.
