Reasons to continue without one:
*Cheaper cell phone bills
*Not being at everyone's beck and call every moment of every day. I can't read my email on my current phone; it's nice to be unplugged part of the day.
*I don't feel like learning something new. First, there's the choosing of the phone-- I'll be choosing from what seems like a bajillion options for android phones or the iPhone. After that pain-in-the-butt decision, there will be the learning how to set it all up and such--
Things I would rather do than learn how to set up and use a new phone:
*Go on a date with this guy:
[Bachelorette contestant, Bentley. Trust me, he's a slimeball.]
*Spend a month looking for a nickel in poopy diapers (Yes, I've done this, and it's gross, even with the gloves. And no, I didn't find it.)
*Rinse our septic filter. (No, I've never done it.)
*Pay bills, including write the check for our annual taxes.
*Have a colonoscopy
*Pour lemon juice in freshly-chewed fingernails
The appealing aspect of getting a smartphone:
*Being able to keep up with my email on-the-go
*Being able to use the Internet anywhere
*Having better ringtone choices (Seriously--the ones I have are just awful.)
All things considered, I am feeling the call. I know a smartphone is in my future. I know that once I've got it all set up, I'll be like all the other smartphone owners who say, "I don't know how I ever lived without it."
How about you? Do you have a smartphone? If so, could you live without it? :)
