Hmm- haven't had that problem with battery charge and bluetooth in the past. We'll see what happens with this phone.

That works fine, as long as you don't have a home in a "dead zone" as we do, and DH must have connectivity for his job. I have two daughters who function with cell only, but as for me, the cell is for traveling and any time I am away from home base. And my latest pet peeve... bluetooth connectivity which, when you have it, drains a cell phone battery at light speed... even if you do not actively use it.

My husband and I are getting ready to do the same thing. We will no longer have a "land line" because there is no sense in having it when we carry our cell phones with us everywhere, and the added expense in this economy just
doesn't make any sense.  And things like the "Kindel" on Amazon.com will
become more common. It's basically an electronic book. You order the book,
it's sent to your Kindel and you read it on this device.  The world is
beginning to go paperless and more electronic.  I don't buy albums
anymore...I just order the album on i-Tunes and download it to my i-Pod.
The next thing will be an increase in vision problems at a younger age
because people stare at computer monitors all the time. I try to keep up with modern technology so it doesn't zoom past me and leave me helpless. My
parents can't function well in this techno world of ours.

I think this is a technology that is just going to continue to grow. My
daughter and son-in-law and their cousins and friends use them as their
main phones. Many don't even have land lines. I feel the same way about newspapers...I love them but many studies that I have read say that most
will be gone in the next 10-15 years.
