I wasn't sure which forum was closer, PC or Off Topic.   My wife had to have her newest tech toy.

 

The other day, she tells the dummy in the box "Make me feel good!" The voice tells her a joke.

 

Do they still make a phone that only makes calls?

That is all mine does and I love it.  My phone is for MY benefit and not anyone else's.

Must be a windows phone.
Mine does the joke thing too.
Like this one,

"what do you get when you cross a hypothetical phrase with a question?"

It doesn't have to be. The phone is only as smart as you let it be or the person operating it.

I miss my Nextel/Motorola i365.....

To be honest, the i305 was the best phone.

Do they still make a phone that only makes calls?

 

 

Yep, it's called a "land line" although they are all now pretty much digital signal i.e. through the cable or fiber optics. My mom has 2 in her house.

Lots of trac phones in stores and ads for the BIG Button type phones for "OLD" people to be able to see and push buttons that are big. AND, best part, they still fold to fit in a pocket!  My last phone was still a foldable and every kidded me about being in dark ages. I could take pix tho too and did many with it at shows. NOW, have huge smart phone and LIKE going on net to see this place and others and still post. Just miss the small size of other ones, mine is one of biggest now.

I agree with you 100%.  Mine is a LG brand but still a flip phone.  I have a cheep lap top that is in my shop I can get on this site and have my manuals on Cd's.  don't need no suitcase to carry around just to be with the "in" crowd.  I also have an older digital camera that takes better pics than the so called smart phones.  Half the time they are fuzzy or turned sideways.
