I don't "plan" to use any "data", certainly not with my fruit phone, unless "reading" is "using data" and my "plan" is to do a lot of that, on my Kindle.

Then they give me a look as if that's all so strange.

And I don't want a PDA + phone in one either... I prefer my PDA as it is, right now.

I finally just grabbed the cheapest one I could see and asked her if it made phone calls. She practically rolled her eyes at me and said it did. I bought it.

Still, phone to me is for making and receiving calls, nothing more nothing less.

My god talk about going retro. It doesn't get more retro than that Sweetpea. I wouldn't call it a mobile phone, more a phone without a cord I could see its advantages.

The battery-life must be quite amazing.

my phone is a basic model that I use as my "landline" phone. I also swap texts with my sister and that's it. Of course the phone has internet capability but I rather not pay for that. I use my wi-fi at home or in wi-fi friendly areas for my iPad which is 3G capable. If I am going out of town to my Mom's house, then I pick up the $25 monthly data plan from ATT for the iPad so I can keep up with my email, "chat" with you guys and other internet goodies like ABC tv shows and Netflix.

My cell phone is so old, it still looks like a phone. the color's all chipped off of it and the antenna's coming off. I'm actually comfortable with it. IT's the touch screen ones that do everything that confuse me.

Trust me when I tell you that I'm pretty sure my phone doesn't do much other than make calls and texts! It's a pretty old Nokia model.
