Another set of questions posed by Sean (Just a Jeep Guy) to share a little more info about ourselves, and our lives. This week's topic: Telephones in all manner, shape, and form.
1. Do you still have a land line?
Yes. It's cheap enough ($10. monthly) and I trust it in emergencies more than a cell phone.
2. Which cell phone do you use and why?
iPhone4 - because it was free. My previous smartphone died a slow death and my carrier was recently able to offer Apple products, so I jumped on the offer. Free phone, shipping, activation and $5.00 off monthly fee.
3. Which provider do you use? Is there really a difference?
Virgin Mobile. (Carrier is Sprint.) Yes, there's a big difference for me. Price and options are perfect for my needs and no 2-year contract.
4. If you call someone and they don't pick up, do you leave a message?
Yes. Especially if the call is important.
5. When you have a missed call (with no message), do you call the person back?
No, unless I recognize the number. "Private Caller" incoming calls go directly to voicemail - if you don't want me to know who you are, I don't want to talk to you.
6. Do you txt willingly or reluctantly? How are your skills?
Willingly. I like texting. Used a lot at work. My skills are not great, but I do voice texting for more complicated messages.
7. Has your cell replaced your camera?
Nope, and it probably never will.
I believe I've done one. I enjoy being in photos with others. Self photos are not my thing. I know what I look like and see myself daily - in the mirror while brushing teeth or shaving.
9. How many apps do you have? Which is your favorite and why? I'm not sure what that means. The phone came with many apps. I've added 3 of my own, and they were free. Google Earth is probably the fave.
0. What would life be like with no cell/smart phone for one month?
I'd prefer life completely without the cellphone. I like privacy. Don't like everyone knowing where I am every minute of the day. I don't answer calls or texts while driving, dining, or even shopping. Dangerous and rude. That said, with current health and medical issues, I'm glad I have it for emergencies.
How much has your cell phone become a part of your sex life? Sexting, hookup apps, selfies, video, GPS, more?
Haahahahahahahahahahahahaha! That's funny...
And so it goes.
