I'm a 61 year-old non-technical hardworking woman, and I have to admit I am falling victim to the iPhone's extraordinary advertising campaign. There is no question in my mind that I WANT one. I want the ability to access the Internet, the ability to watch certain TV shows and movies, the ability to take high-quality photographs, and the ability to access maps whenever I need to. What I don't need is texting. I am not a texter, I have never understood what the appeal of texting is. Why would people use their thumbs on a teensy-weensy keyboard to communicate with their friends, when they're holding a telephone? I mean, why not just CALL your friend? Most calling plans have either unlimited or huge amounts of call time. You can express yourself far more articulately in live conversation, than you can with abbreviations when texting. So, please, someone explain to this little old lady why you want to pay $30 to $45 a month to text your friends, when you can call them for far less, and express yourself far better.
