I Have a New Phone, and I Don't Know How To Work It

Yep.  That's right.  I have a new touch phone.

For the past few years, I've had my trusty pink Blackberry.  It was a nice solid phone.  It was pink.  It had a very dirty trackball.

I decided to join the human race and bought a touch phone. Sigh. Why did I join the human race? Here's my new phone, the Droid Incredible:



Does it look complicated?  Well, it IS. 

I was a whiz on my Blackberry.  I could text as fast as lightning!  I could have won texting competitions for speed and accuracy.  I could easily type a smiley face of any kind, and used the exclamation point excessively.

But, now, I have FAT FINGER problems.  Let me introduce you to Little Miss Fat Fingers:



She looks a bit angry.   I am guessing that's because her fingers are so fat.

Anyway, if you text me,  please be patient with my responses.  I   G O  V E R Y  S L O W.

And, I look like this:

This is why I don't get these fancy phones. My girls have them and now I can't check who they are talking to or texting, not that I did that.
Thanks for your sweet comment. I still have the scale I won and another one my friend gave me.
Enjoy your day,
KarenSue

Angie, you're killing me. It takes me so long! But, if you send me your number, you'll get a text that takes me hours to compose. :-)

Jud, In March I turned in my old Razor with the 3 letters per "number" phone, and got an i Phone. I thought, "Oh all I want is to be able to text and talk...that is all!" Well, I even surprise myself now..checking FB (yeah), bank accts. (:(), weather and internet stuff.

I too have the fat finger syndrome! Rebecca laughs at me at my lack of speed. That's ok, I'll just do it my way! :)

Poor Ju.

I have great faith that you will work your way up to being a wizard with it!

WORD
I used to take Geritol but now I take a swig of Entedol every morning for energy.

I doubt seriously if your fingers are fat...but this cracks me up because my husband is always complaining about the same things on TV remotes, telephones, etc. I always threaten to buy him one of those big Granny remotes with buttons the size of checkers. AND he's thinking about getting a Droid. Ruh-roh...

word: ausconi

I like my ausconi served with lots and lots of cheese and butter.

P.S. Good one, Mel!
