Phones

Road-Map

Purchasing a Smartphone saved me the expense of buying a GPS navigation device for my car. If it were not for my daughter looking at me the way only a teenager can and asking, “Why don’t you just use your phone?” I’d still be considering the purchase of a GPS device. Prior to using the [...]

Google-Play-Apps

From time to time I’ll share information on apps that have been helpful to me. In an earlier post, I mentioned KingSoft Office, Barcode Scanner, Amazon Kindle, WordPress, Smart Voice recorder and banking software. To that list of apps I’d like to add the following: (Insert your auto insurance company name here) App I don’t [...]

Moto-G

The reason is simple; it’s the one phone being offered by my cell phone service provider that met all of my needs. In my earlier posts, I explain that I’m not a heavy cell phone user. In fact, I barely use a cell phone. When I decided to switch from a prepaid cell phone to [...]

It slowly informs you of your current prepaid phone balance and how much you can use for your current phone call. When you need to make a call from [...]

Cell Phone Radiation

Radioactive

If you use a cell phone the old-fashioned way, then you should take time to read the book Disconnect by Derva Davis. When I say the old-fashioned way, I’m talking about dialing a number, putting the phone to your ear and actually having a voice conversation. If you only use it for texting, you’re a [...]

Jr Cell Phone

There comes a time in every family’s life when a decision has to be made. The life-changing decision is: Is Junior responsible enough to have a cell phone? This is not an age-old question. It’s one of those questions that are faced by this generation but were not faced by the prior generation. In the [...]
