    Ahhh, did ALL cell phones change? :rolleyes:

    Mine has not changed since I first got it, about 5 years ago - except it has less finish on it.

    I fought having to use one due to customer abusive practices. Having bought one around 7 years ago I have no need to change, the abusive practices have only gotten worse.

    I have one which is good to make phone calls locally (and eventually abroad but insanely expensive). Messages to my office when I am not in my area (as now).
    Just minutes ago its alarm woke me up. And that's all to it.

    Have no interest in whatever new is coming, at least for now.

    :rolleyes:Cell phones < SNIP !!> [ there mods - beatcha to it :D ]

    Seriously.........my peeps dragged me kicking and screaming into the 21st century, insisting we all have one on the family plan............. now for some intractable reason I feel naked without the darn thing.

    I have a bare-bones service - phone and voicemail .......no pix, no text, nada ! none of that extraneous claptrap.

    Most times though, it is a real p<snip> off, 'cuz when you honestly need to communicate, 75% of the time you get.........
    "your call has been forwarded to an automated voice-messaging system" [ verizon ] so and so is not available ...........:mad::mad:

    You're right about the abusive part Bill............I like the one recently about the yakkity Bozo that got kicked off the train for yammering incessantly :p

    Once the cost of my prepaid plan equalled the cost of unlimited internet and messaging I switched to a smart phone.

    The new interface for AAC is ok. Definitely not as convenient as from the computer but I don't turn that on very much since I got the new phone....

    I think the new interface would be good for old style phones with internet, but for smart phones with touchscreens, it's more of a hinderance than a help.
    There's no "go advanced", you have to click the images to see them, anything in a code box gets truncated to about 20 columns wide, you can't easily see if users are online, etc.
    It would be good to have a button to press, or something in the user CP so that you could choose.
    Maybe I can change something in my phone so it pretends to be a desktop browser for this site, but I haven't really looked into it yet.

    Ah, glad I was directed to this thread. I posted a complaint in the feedback section about the mobile phone interface. I don't like it at all and think we really need an option to switch to the standard website. Modern phones have plenty of power to view the full pages, and the switch to the mobile version feels like going back to the stone ages. I can definitely see the benefit of having the mobile option, but please don't force everyone to use it.

    How do I get to the mobile version? I think it asked me about it a few weeks ago and I skipped selecting yes or something.. Now I just see the regular site..

    Also when Virgin Mobile offers a $25 (unlimited data/300 minutes plan) you can't pass that up... No one can touch that deal.. I'm loving it.. I swore I would never get a smart phone.. Now I don't know how I live without it. 300 minutes a month is plenty for me.

    I think it must be something in your phone settings. Unfortunately my phone browser didn't give me the option.

    I get a good deal on T-mobile pay as you go in the UK. Internet is £20 for 6 months and apart from that I just pay for a few calls. Internet is limited to 1Gb a month but I don't get anywhere near that.
