Our news ran a story last night about SMART PHONES. My phone does nothing, only phone calls,no texting, no pics, no internet.I wasn't paying much attention(don't need bells& whistles) BUT THEN--They were talking about free apps,they would tell you where garage/ estate sales were, what they were selling, and map it all out for you! Sales just had to be listed somewhere electronically(like craig's list) HMMMM - I might need to upgrade! LOL!! DO you have a SMART PHONE--do you have this app? JUST curious!

Nope, just have a regular phone for calls and text. I have an IPad with 3G so get internet anywhere there is cell signal and I use it for the apps. I love the GPS app. when we travel.

I have the iPhone which is what I'm on now. I don't know how I ever lived without it. LOL! I don't have those apps but I'm gonna look into them.

Amen! My iPhone is my grocery list, my calendar, my GPS, my birthday list, my Xmas list, my address book, my daily crossword puzzle, my iPod, my translator, my dictionary, my notepad, my EVERYTHING!

So true! I bought a laptop a year and a half ago and I hardly get on since I got my iPhone. Now if I could figure out how to load pictures to the board from my phone then I will never use my laptop.

I have a straight talk phone that gives me internet and everything I want except the apps. However, I have an I-touch that has all my fabric conversion apps. I love it. The straight talk is cheaper ($30 a month) but I don't have access to the apps if I'm not in wi-fi range. You'd probably like the smartphone much better.
