I'm a 54 year old male. By choice I have a simple flip phone, no texting, nothing. I spend little time on the phone, and thats the way I like it. I am very computer literate, but don't like smartphones, and have never been interested in them. I am also cheap. However, due to a possible side job I may be taking on, I may need to get a smart phone, so I can take and email pictures. My knee jerk reaction is that an Iphone is the reliable easy way to go. I don't use an Apple computer, though, always IBM style PCs. I hate to imagine adding this to our current plan. My wife handles all that, and she really goes batty anytime she has to talk to ATT. Is there an affordable way to buy a smart phone, and carry a cheap plan, or is adding it to our current cell phone stuff most logical? Also, are the android phones as good as/easier than Iphones? I'm not as dumb as all this sounds, phones just turn me off. This is the only forum I really visit.
