Larry and I have had our cellphones for almost ten years. The battery never runs down, it always works and the reception is pretty good. My big complaint with our ancient phones is that they're too big and heavy! Also, people used to laugh at me when they saw me raise the antenna on my ol' phone. So, last week we decided to upgrade to smaller, more efficient phones.
After waiting forever, a salesperson finally helped us. She said we should take our old Nokia phones to the "Antiques Roadshow" next time they're in town. Smart-alec.
We just got basic flip-phones. They are compact and lightweight. I am having a few problems getting used to the many techno-possibilities offered by this new model. Ol' Ellen has to study the manual a bit longer to get up to speed,.
