1. Do you still have a land line?
Yup, it comes as part of the cable package. I live in a high-rise building, and need a landline to remotely open the front door to the building.
2. Which cell phone do you use and why?
Samsung Galaxy S4. I narrowed the selection down to this and an HTC One, the Samsung had a brighter screen, and changeable battery.
3. Which provider do you use? Is there really a difference?
This fall I moved from T-Mobile to Verizon and there is a real difference. The network coverage and signal strength are much-much better.
4. If you call someone and they don’t pick up, do you leave a message?
If I want to talk to them, and if they usually listen to their messages.
5. When you have a missed call (with no message), do you call the person back?
Rarely, if it is my sweet-bear or my father yes.
6. Do you text willingly or reluctantly? How are your skills?
I have taken up texting in the past couple of years. I still don’t do a lot of texting, but I do it willingly. Skills? I use too many words, and full words. I have learned to use voice to text.
7. Has your cell replaced your camera?
I am about 50% along in my phone replacing my camera. I still like a good wide angle and moderate telephoto lens, and I have yet to see a phone with really good lens options. Electronic zoom, is not the same as good glass.
Yes, I travel alone a lot.
9. How many apps do you have? Which is your favorite and why?
Less than 10, Starbucks, bike-share locators, a couple of work related ones.
10. What would life be like with no cell/smart phone for one month?
It would take me two or three days to get over email withdrawal, with periodic email panics. I have gone three or four days without email service a few times since my first “smart-phone” and it is a struggle. I can live without the phone, email runs my life.
How much has your cell phone become a part of your sex life? Sexting, hookup apps, selfies, video, GPS, more?
Not at all.
