Since our phones are near death, and I am gonna miss my Nokia, and the timing was just there, we went and got those new iPhones. I wasn't waiting for the next big thing, it was just the timing....don't think my phone would last another month!
I have loved my Nokias. They were tough as nails and easy to maintain. Plus, I tend to use a phone as a phone, so texting and music on a phone has never been a large part of its use. And to be honest, I was never really big on texting cuz I hate typing.
So somehere, *Cough, Tom, cough Phil, Cough Nick, cough cough,* may have hinted that my means are archaic by today's standards.
But with Siri, looks like I may be sending out more texts. Also, with the new phone 8M camera and 1080 HD vid capabilities, we dont have to worry if someone bought the PnS camera...
I've been pretty anti-smartphone.... In fact, I call them dumbphones simply because people allow themselves to become complete imbeciles with these things. I mean its one thing to have a tool and use it. Its another to have to rule your life, to the point it affects your driving and interpersonal skills. People do not know how to tune these things out.
And to be blunt, I'm very big on family. And I nearly blow my stack when I go to kiddie parties and outings and see parents with their face in a cell screen and not even looking at the best thing on earth, their kids. Turn it off, imbeciles!
So I have just bought a tool that I want to use wisely.
That said, I am asking for advice. I think I should get some physical protection for the phone.
A-any recommendations on impact bearing covers?
B-What are some of the more useful apps (not games) that are out there to truly help one's life? (I know its too easy to list games and such, but trying to steer away from that.) For example, someone told me of apps that help translate, which could help my everyday work.
C- Oh, I have not added protection yet, but I can add Verizon protection or Applecare. Big difference there? Experiences?
