In an earlier post I wrote that I didn’t have a smartphone and was getting along fine using my dumbphone that did nothing but make calls and play MP3 files. It finally stopped working. So I bought a smartphone, mainly because the cheapest ones cost about the same as the dumbphone I bought a few years ago. It’s cool being able to use wi-fi to look at websites and read Wikipedia (on an app that uses the text stored in the phone’s memory). I still mostly use it as an MP3 player. I still use a prepaid plan and my cost will still be around $10 per month over the life of the phone.
