This is what my daughter ’79 gave me for Mother’s Day. Lovely isn’t it. It is The Instinct, a cell phone from Sprint. I would like to thank my child for her thoughtful and well meaning gift. She loves me and did not know this phone had its own agenda…. which is to destroy mom.
Now I am usually good with electronics and don’t need a manual for any reason. I even know how to program a dvr and set the clock and everything. Well let me tell you, I have met my match. This thing has frustrated me to the point I want to hurl it through space, how much do you think that would cost, because it might be worth it. I realize I am getting old when I feel inadequate to a small rectangular electronic device that is suppose to simplify my life. I know I would love its ease of texting, if only my fingers would keep out of the way. Okay, I broke down and read the how to book and now I will prevail because after all I am woman hear me whimper roar. Oh look it has GPS… cool beans.
Update: The phone and I have come to an agreement, it will co-operate nicely and in return I won’t buy it a one way ticket on the space shuttle. I am starting to like this thing more and more, especially since it has at last recognized my superiority. You don’t think it’s connected to Skynet do you?
Nice! I hope you can figure it out =) I feel for you at the same time, though =P my friends are like, “get a myspace get a myspace” and I can’t figure it out.
I don’t have any of these fancy phones. Yet. I can hardly manage my old one! When I do get one I will certainly be putting your number on speed dial so that I can figure it out! Electronics are NOT my forte.
Good luck with that! I’m still trying to figure out my simple cell phone!
I just found out how to take a picture.
Now what do I do with it????
Cell phones are one of my weaknesses and I get a new one every couple of years. My best advice would be f you’re having problems call customer service or go into a store. That’s what they’re there for!
It just takes some getting used to… like most things in life. Eventually, it will be your little slave. Enjoy!
Thank you for the phone and your sense of humor
I hav the storm; it’s completely annoying, like moving icons around. What? Any ways good luck! How did you teach it your superiority?
First I reasoned with it using my vast knowledge of electronics and then I threatened it with a phone crusher I got from Acme.
I will cheer you on from the sidelines. I can barely figure out my dvd recorder.
“Master 80 says”
you must become one with your mechanical device in order to gain superiority against your foes so that you may CONQUER THE WORLD……uh…… I mean…….. improve your abilities in the art of mechanical device usage.
I raised a funny child who is wise beyond her years. Next I will master the Zen of the Tweetdeck
Wow! Fancy phone! What a great gift!
