I made fun of my mom because her flip phone broke and she taped it back together LOL. She upgraded to the Galaxy and she likes it for the most part.

What used to crack me up when I had my (Japanese) flip phone was that American people thought it was the dinosaur they were used to.  I would then be like...

Does your phone also act as a train pass?
Can you use your phone as a credit card?
Can you walk into a convenience store, and touch your phone to the register to pay for your things?
Can you get TV reception on your phone?

No?

I've noticed older folks have flip phone because they aren't into smart phones nor want to learn how to use them. I'll only tease you if you are young.

No. There are two reasons why I would assume someone has a flip phone: Because they can't afford a smart phone or because they want one. None if those are funny to me.

nah, i would never make fun of someone else's shortcomings. besides, quite a few people in my fam have them because they use the phone strictly for talking/texting and that's it.

 I love my android but I really wish I had a QWERTY. All these plans you gotta have just for the phone to work.  smh.  I was actually thinking of gettin something like a Blackberry for my next phone.  *shrugs*  I still have a portable CD player (and folks do look at me crazy when I carry it sometimes) and VHS tapes.  I'm in no position to judge.


I don't carry mine, but I just bought one w/ the ability to play cds and mp3/bluetooth capabilities.  Why should I spend money downloading music I already own from the past?
