The camera on my flip phone is about done, and I think it’s time for a no-contract Boost Mobile smartphone.
I have resisted owning a smartphone for as long as they’ve existed. I have been loyal to my LG flip phone with talk, text and camera capabilities, and it has served me well. Flip phones are like cockroaches. I drop my phone at least once a day and the thing never breaks, unless you throw it really hard at, say, a wall. I have also enjoyed the flip phone’s compact size, as it fits in a pant pocket with ease, and every once in a while it sparks a humorous conversation.
I have been paying $68/month for my no-contract Verizon flip phone, and it’s ridiculous. I also live without a car, and currently without a compact camera, and I don’t want to do it any longer. Owning a smartphone would really help me get around town, as I am now a member of Occasional Car, Car2Go and Uber. The thing that scares me about owning a smartphone is Facebook Mobile. That’s actually the #1 thing that has hindered me from already owning one. Obviously I can resist installing the App. I’ll have to see how that goes.
I have until Dec. 18th to make my final smartphone decision.
The future is calling.
