Say hello to my little friend. It’s a Kyocera something or other.
It replaces the dumb phone I used to have. You know, the one I raved about in an earlier post. I guess it didn’t like being called dumb because it decided to leave me somewhere in Georgia.
I was driving back to Florida in that ethereal timeline between late night and early morning when I made a stop for a bite to eat. That when my phone decided to ditch me and try to hitch a ride somewhere else.
Fifteen dollars down the drain.
I’m not too concerned about it. There were few phone numbers on it and it was set up for talk only. I had a pay as you go plan, so they couldn’t rack up long distance calls on it, nor could they even text on the thing! All in all, it was a pretty safe phone.
My new phone had the same account and phone number, so the old phone is now totally off-line. I have no concerns about it if it is ever found.
In according to tradition, this phone started out pretty cheap. Thirty bucks. I chose it so I could take pictures and download podcasts. The wife had other ideas. She insisted on a cover and protective screen film. I opted for the one year replacement plan. (It was $5 and who knows what’s going to happen to this thing in a year.)
So far I’ve downloaded a few free apps and love watching you tube on it.
I’ve found it takes ok but not great pictures.
What I haven’t figured out is how to post these directly onto my blog using WordPress. (Any help here would be immensely appreciated.) Right now I download them to my lap top and then go from there.
And as a bow to modern culture I bring to you my phone’s first “Selfy”.
Personally I don’t get it. Why would anyone want a picture of someone else’s phone is beyond me.
