senior citizen ?

We are not quite as tech savvy as the younger generation so have put off upgrading our cells phones for two too many years. It was time. Now days it is hard to find a cell phone that you aren't required to purchase a data plan to go with it.

My first "go-to" site for advice is CNet.com. They have never let me down with product reviews so it was helpful for this purchase. For most items they have a video review that is pretty comprehensive.



"The Pantech Ease has a beautiful capacitive touch-screen display and a sturdy slider QWERTY keyboard. It has two modes: the Easy mode is cleverly designed for cell phone novices and senior citizens; advanced users will like the 2-megapixel camera, music player, and 3G speeds. Call quality is great thanks to a noise suppression technology."



I predict the mister will use the "easy mode"
and I will attempt the "advanced mode"

I hope I don't miss my antiquated Motorola Razr.

How funny! I've been due for a new phone and have been freaking out about choosing one. They all look so complicated. I, also, love the simplicity of my Razr. It would be nice to have internet but just thinking about upgrading gives me palpitations. Be sure and let me know what you think of your new phone.

I agree too many phone choices and like a car as soon as you buy one it becomes obsolete. Although I am a gadget freak. I upgrade every two years and this year I went with a Blackberry and love it. I really wanted the I phone but not at that price; especially since the Blackberry was only $10. My last phone was a Razr and I loved it. I still have it and will keep it as a backup. Good luck....

You will probably love a new phoe. I used a Razr forever but I love my iPhone with all its capabilities!

The only reason I am ok with cell phone upgrades is that my hubby is very cell phone savvy. Thank goodness for his patience in teaching me for a good 6 months after the phone is purchased!! :)

Didn't know about the web site, thanks.
Rignt now, if I need a lesson or have a question, I just ask one of the student at school. They love it when I don't know much about my phone. Last year them taught me how to text! Haven't stopped texting since.

Tony refuses to update his flip phone! He just doesn't like the feel of the other phones! Hurray, that you upgraded! We just got maddie and phone and struggled to find a phone that didn't need the data plan!

We have yet to upgrade past our "flip Phones" however... Zac, Wayne and I are due new phones for Christmas which will enable all of us to upgrade to texting! We are way behind the times!

I am overdue for an upgrade on my phone and I just cannot part with mine that I've had for so long. My daughters just smile when I use it(okay, maybe they laugh). This post has been helpful to me in my senior citizen status:) Thank you for sharing and for inspiring me somewhat.
