    Well, I agree with Rat’s point…but that is going a bit extreme.

    I doesn’t matter how smart the phones are if they’re still being used by stupid people.

    Just tell Rat that he can do transactions with his bookie much faster with a smart phone.

    My smart phone is brilliant! But as a phone it’s not so good. My old flip phone sounded much better!

    For 10+ years of owning a mobile phone, never had issue with it freezing – then buy a smart phone!

    Reminds me of the old lady who called and complained that she didn’t receive the Sunday paper. When told it was Saturday, she said “That’s why no one was at church.”

    For Pig and Rat, maybe pork-&-beans cans would be appropriate.

    My phone is smarter than I am. I am convinced that sometimes it gets bored and messes with me just for fun.

    My phone isn’t as primitive as a tin can, but it IS Alexander Graham Bell’s second attempt……….

    I agree with Rat on this one… I don’t want and never will want a Smartphone.

    Good to have a cellphone when traveling. The rest of the time I’ll stick with the landline (also updates my TiVo connections and serves as a FAX, when I need to deal with papers that they don’t accept by email).
