Ring Ring Ring

Now usually I'm fond
Of that technical guff
But when it comes to phones
I just don't need stuff

That will find me a place
With strange food to eat
Or let me play games
While I'm out on the street

That will work out the bill
When it's split between eight
But two had no dessert
'Cause they turned up late

Full of gadgets and gizmos
And many apps to spare
TV, music and pictures
I really don't care

Just give me a phone
That makes texts and calls
You can keep all the rest
As it's mostly all balls

I just wanna make some calls and maybe send the odd text
Is that so strange?

No. Not so strange at all. I'd opt for that, too, but I'm still fighting the cell phone thing.

I Heart My iPhone!

I use it to check bank balances and expense reports and blogs and email! I need it!!! *starts breathing heavily*

No, not so strange. But if it doesn't have features for notifying you of the closest knee-bleaching locale, what will drive the gullible public to purchase a new one every 45 minutes?

Dude. I'm EXACTLY the same. I don't need all that other bollocks. But I have one more requirement, and that is that it be a clamshell or flip phone so that it can't make calls from my handbag.

I was having this very conversation yesterday! Only you put it better. I do not care about baaPhones or any such guff. I do not want a stupid ringtone. I just want calls and texts. That's it.

mjenks - I held off for a long time, too. I only got one for the first time about five years ago.

Nikki - I reckon if I had one, I'd probably become addicted. But, at the moment, I just don't see the fuss.

Pearl - Hmmm, my knees could do with whitening....

Soda And Candy - Ah, I'm not a flip-top man. I'd only end up breaking them with my sausage-like fingers.

Anna - Exactly. Although I do like my Ghostbusters ringtone, though (occasionally alternating with The Avengers).
