You and Your Cell Phone

In the past ten years, how many cell phones have you owned? If you are over the age of 25 or so, then it is likely that you have switched to a new phone on average every 1-2 years. The older you are, ironically, the trade-in rate is probably higher than that, perhaps every 2-3 years, if you are in your 40s, and even less often if you are in your 50s or more. The reason for that is simple. Older people, in general, do not use, and don’t even know about, all the different bells and whistles in cased in that little, but magical, piece of electronic equipment.  Young folk, however, not only know what their phones can do, but know how to use those things, and love using them.

Immediately we see an important factor in the decision on how to choose the perfect phone for you. Do you need, want or care about all those features the latest and hippest cell phones come with. If all you want is a phone, then the simplest model, which is usually the least expensive, is most likely the best phone for you. If there is something you would like which is simple and easy to use and understand, like a camera, or a calendar, don’t worry. Almost every phone on the market, even the simplest of them, has those features.

Looking for a full-service phone? Something that has everything? Well, be prepared to pay a lot more, and the following articles should help you decide what features are right for you.
