Now that’s bloody clever…

Now on a decidedly happier note today I finally went and got a new phone.  Mrs F has had enough of me moaning about my old phone being slow and keep crashing/freezing.  But firstly I had to pass the end of my existing contract before I upgraded to save money, then I couldn’t find the phone I wanted at the tarrif I wanted at a cost I was prepared to pay.  I compromised in the end by getting a slightly bigger phone – I really wanted a compact one that fitted better in my jeans pockets… so I thought – having got the new one – slipped it in my pocket and thought… “Hmm why was I worried?”  Also larger screen bit better for a decrepid old git like me who has difficulty typing on a smaller screen.  Maybe now the hankering after a pointless tablet will pass.. I doubt that.

But the clever bit is that once I connected and logged in to Google it down loaded all the apps I had on my old phone… now that is bloody clever!  It even loaded up the wallpaper I had on the old phone – a picture of my Nunostrat (eyes right –>).  Only thing it didn’t do was copy over my personal ringtone, an excerpt from a song of mine called Demons – no confusing my ringtone with everybody else who still has Grand Vals by Tarrega!

  1. New gadgets are always fun. And not to tempt you, but I barely use my laptop since I got my iPad. However, I do make a lot of auto spell errors on the tablet that I probably wouldn’t when typing on a keyboard.

  2. A new phone is a BIG DEAL. It’s something you use all day, every day. A thorough study must be undertaken before a purchase is made. Once you make your selection, you STUCK with it for the life of your contract. It’s nothing to be taken lightly.

    You’re not decrepit and old.

    I don’t have a mobile phone or a tablet so you’re doing pretty well in my eyes, or ears I guess in this case.

    dude…I love my iPad. But to be fair, it was a gift. I would have never dumped that amount of money on myself for a toy.

    Have fun with your new gadget!!!

    The hubby and I just got new phones on Sunday. We changed from iPhones (which I swore I’d never leave!) to the Galaxy S5. Woah! What a difference. The screen is HUGE! And, the camera…way better. Not to mention all the cool features it has. All I did Monday was play on it, getting my settings just right, finding apps that would make it more efficient. So much fun!!
