Long time no post

The wife wanted to text easier, so I bought her the most basic phone with a slide out button qwerty keypad.  The phone developed an annoying echo which we couldn't fix.  Then she says she would prefer a touchscreen keyboard like her ipod-touch rather than actual buttons....

So we're finally joining the crowd and I bought us identical smart-ass phones with a monthly data plan.  She can now text and google map search out all the quilt shops while traveling.

Samsung Galaxy Exhibit 4G.  Not to be confused with the Samsung Exhibit 4G.

They're Adroid, so its a learning experience from the Apple iphones I've dealt with.

Be sure to install those great apps your brother wrote, Hiker and Cocktail Compass.

I need one for the very same reasons, but haven't done much research yet. Arleen wants to text, and our "primitive" cell phones do it, but very clumsily (six keystrokes to add a punctuation mark?). I would like some sort of internet access for my netbook that reaches a bit further than the free wifi at Starbucks. The problem is I don't want to be paying $160 a month for a cellphone--or whatever data plans are these days. The other problem, as I think I mentioned earlier, is that I absolutely refuse to be keyboarding with my thumbs. I'll look forward to chatting with you when you get used to your "smartass" phone.
