I tried to get one of those phones where you tell the phone what to do. The guy told me it wasn't available for my carrier; Consumer Cellular....I haven't even set- up my answering machine errrrr voicemail because I'm not planning on keeping it.
When somebody sends me a text instead of calling me like an adult I have to go through like 5 functions to find it as opposed to it being right there.
That being said, the only way for me to get a message currently is to find the text on there later. As things stand I have almost no chance of answering a call on the thing by pushing buttons and sliding my thumb on the screen correctly before it goes to my non-existent voice mail.
I'm paying more for something that is more frustrating and less practical for me.
I'm either at home, work, hunting or fishing 99% of the time.
Home and work have computers. When I'm hunting I usually leave it in the truck, but do sometimes use it when I'm duck hunting and i have buddies hunting nearby and want to share info, talk smack. Flip phone is preferable for this as it fits in my pocket better and I can use it with one hand while my other holds my gun, or rod Fishing, I usually don't have reception even if I'm not actually busy with a rod in my hand. I am known to go in the water with my phone in my pocket on occasion though. Replacement flip phone = $20 WINNING.
