My mind is Boggled with my new "me" gift

Real Estate Agent with RETIRED 200305001

Yesterday I took the big step and ordered a smart phone. I have been plenty happy with my "dumb flip phone", It makes call as takes calls and it NEVER makes "butt dials"!

What has caused me to change at this time is a couple of embarrassing situations. One was when an escrow company needed a quick answer AFTER I review a document. My response was" I am on the road, let me take my mini laptop and find a Starbucks". The response was' Can;t you look at it on your phone"? Everyone assumes you have a smart phone.

The reason to get it during the holidays, I have 3 college techies here for the holidays that might help me make sense of ALL these icons and procedures. Do you remember your first day with one?

Good morning Rob and Merry Christmas. I do indeed remember my first day with the Smartphone. The sound was down and there was no ringing when I got a call. So frustrating. It was the case. In any event, you are lucky to have the experts on hand. Enjoy the day.

I HATE learning how to use a new gadget.  I totally get it.  Very smart of you to time it just right to have the help you will need.  I'm sure you will do just fine!
