Whatever happened to....
Anybody else have one of those old ones? I guess they're not quite gone yet, but the writing is on the wall. I'd heard some years ago that some cellphone companies weren't even accepting analog cellphone accounts anymore.
I received a notice from my provider, U.S. Cellular, yesterday. They advise that they'll stop supporting analog phones effective November of this year. They say they're actually being generous as many other companies are dropping analogs even earlier. Now what to do?
I have an old Motorola "bag phone" that I keep in my truck. I only use it on rare occasion, but appreciate having it available. It only costs a little over $10.00 a month and I suppose I could do without it completely, but it does give me some comfort knowing I have it if I need it. I've probably had that phone for over then years.
Thing is, I don't want, or even like, all the newer digital cellphones everyone else has nowadays. They're too small to hold easily, seems to me, and I don't need all the bells and whistles. I just need something to make phone calls on very rare occasions. Something inexpensive and durable.
Is there anything available like that nowadays? I haven't seen anything that suits my fancy.
I actually went to E- Bay a month or so ago to see if I could find an older, larger digital cellphone. I found out then that E- Bay had frozen my account a few months earlier for some reason, stating misuse or some such thing. Funny thing is, that was the first time I'd been to E- Bay for quite some time so I'm assuming someone hacked my account and misused it.
Anyway, then I tried to find some kind of cellphone I might like doing a search for cellphones and all that came up was pages with the same crappy cellphones all the rest of you have.
Anyone know of any cellphone manufacturers that make bigger, simpler digital cellphones. If I can't find one, I might just do without.
Sometimes being an old- timer who likes the simple things sucks.
