New Phones

We got a text from Verizon that it’s time to upgrade our phones. Well, I’ll go for that because my phone battery is about shot and I have to put it in the charger every day. I use my phone to talk on and that’s it. My phone doesn’t even have a camera on it. I’m so old school!!!

Dawn on the other hand is always taking pictures, sending text and doing all kinds of other things with her phone. She is so up with the text lingo that when someone sends me a text she has to translate it for me! I know it’s SAD.

Anyway we were having dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant when we received the text about upgrading our phones. After dinner we stopped by the Verizon store. We were lucky enough to have a really nice patient young man show us all the phones and explain the differences. After explaining to him that I’m somewhat old school when it comes to using a cell phone, he showed us the Droid Incredible.

It is an interesting phone. He showed us the features and told me to play with it for a few minutes. I think that even I could learn this phone. Dawn said she liked it too.

It is buy one get one free! I like that even better. O.K, so now I am spending all my free time trying to learn how to use this Droid phone. It’s really easy to use and the sound is very clear.

The user Guide is two-hundred and six pages. The Guide doesn’t come with the phone. You have to download it from the internet.

Look Out World, I’m going high tech!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Travel Safe Dawn and Denise

  1. Congratulations! I'm still trying to convince myself to take the leap. And now, Verizon is tempting me, once more, by bringing out the iphone. I don't know how much longer I can hold out! lol
    Look forward to a review from you after you've had it awhile.

  2. We LOVE our Droid phones! Of course our service is with Sprint, but it's still a great phone.

  3. Don't you hate that you can no longer get a manual with anything? On my Droid X, and my new Canon Camera, I found it was easier to just play with them then to try to understand the manual.

    Enjoy your phones! There are a lot of good apps out there, so if you think of something you need, chances are there is an app. Need a compass, a leveler, a gps, heartrate monitor grocery list, restaurant, campground? It's all out there, you just need to look!

  5. Congratulations! Be careful though, they're addicting! Tracy just switched over to a Droid a few months ago (I'm still on my basic phone) and she is constantly checking email and facebook, texting, and playing games. I will admit that it is really fun though and I'm slightly jealous. I'm sure you'll pick it up quickly and will be a pro before you know it. Have fun!

  9. Stu is enjoying his Droig phone (LG Ally) but I love the size of my Palm Pre Plus. Of course if we had waited, I know we'd both be getting new iPhones....oh well. LOL!

  10. I have an iPhone, my kids have Droids, I just got a Kindle, and Mo still doesn't take photos on her phone or text, in fact she usually asks me to check her messages. Gotta have one techie in each family and one sane person.

  13. So how much extra a month is everyone paying for having some sort of smart phone? Would that extra cost be on top of what we are already spending on our phones now?

    We are grandfathered in with unlimited everything for our 2 phones and MiFi, will we lose this plan?

  15. Kevin and I are both old school too. Don't know how to text and don't really need to know. Our phone never gets used and the only reason we have one is because Kevin needed it for the courier job he had. Also the phone is just that a phone, no other fancy gadgets. So I think we beat you at being old school.

    Have fun with your new phone.
