My new phone

31 Jul

I finally did it. I got a smart phone.

I’d managed to get along just fine with my flip phone and computer, but I will be buying a new car before too long. Since new cars all have bluetooth capability, I figured I ought to get the phone before the car so the dealership can show me all the fabulous things the car and phone can do together. If only they could drive for me!

I don’t think I am ready for that yet. Do you think that means I have trust issues?

Getting the phone was quick and painless. I have a MacBook and an iPad, so you can imagine the direction I went. I was in and out quickly, with the new phone connected to the phone connected to the Apple ID I use for my other devices.

It wasn’t until I was driving home that there was one piece of crucial information I didn’t get: the phone number.

This was easily remedied by calling my landline. There was an email waiting for me when I got home, too, from my carrier. That made my next step easier and I began announcing to the world my newly connected status. Here is my first selfie:

    Lol😉 So, what is your new phone number? Also, we got our Cappella Tickets (yeah!). Now I just have to build up my ability to drive farther than the neighborhood library so I can get to the concerts. A couple of months for that. Diane

    I was also a late adopter with the smart phone, but I can’t imagine not having it now, especially in the car! Podcasts, audio books, creative driving directions…. Enjoy!

    I put it off much longer than my friends too. Once I had the capability I use it more. It is convenient. Good luck!!!!

    Congratulations on your new phone. My phone is a Samsung android. I understand about the Bluetooth because my phone and car are in sync. Since my car came with a GPS I needed a phone that could talk to the car. Both my phone and car are much smarter than I.

      Yup. That’s why I needed to do this step before the car step.

    Love it! I am so learning from your experience. Soon I too will take a plunge into the smart phone, texting, selfie world. I am just waiting for my flip phone to break!
