You might say that I am slowly getting into the 21st century. I have been using my flip phone for nearly 8 years now and it has been through grime, mud, grease, and countless other things that I know are not good for it but every time it comes back on and works like the day I got it. My kids are giving me the hardest time about it too. The last time my daughter asked to use it, she could not figure out that it was never going to swipe left or right no matter how hard she tried but the look she gave me when I told her that you could not get on the internet with it, it was as if I was talking a foreign language to her.
So I broke down and headed out to the nearest cell phone shop to pick up a new phone and the salesman there was pretty nice to me about it. They had a little tent sitting outside with flyers about data and roaming and all kinds of lingo that I was not really used to but he explained it enough to me that I got the gist of what to look for. I am happy with my new phone even if it will take some time getting used to.
