Are smartphones really worth the money?
I have always used very cheap, simple cell phones. After years of ridicule from my friends, I tried out a very popular 'smart' cell phone last fall. I had this smartphone for a month, and had constant problems. Most of the people I know that use smartphones complain about problems all the time. So, are they really worth the extra money?
I don't have a smartphone and I don't think they're worth it. If you have a computer then you shouldn't need one.
I don't think they are for me. The only reason I have a cell phone is to talk and text. But smart phones may be worth the money for people like my brother who often needs to use certain apps or connect to the internet in the course of his job and doesn't always have access to a computer. It drives me nuts when people I know who have smart phones are using them to post to Facebook and play games when they should be working.
I have a simple cell phone and sometimes wish I could go back to a basic house phone. My phone rings off the hook. It's something I can't escape from because it travels with me. At least when all I had was a house phone, I could leave the house and not be distracted by phone calls. So to me, a smartphone would not help me. In fact, it would probably add to my chaotic day. Some people find them very efficient. I'm a paper calendar and pen type of gal, so I carry everything I need in a portable day planner. But for people who need a traveling device (a smartphone or similar device) that helps them attain efficiency, it's a good thing.
I've known a few people who have made good use of their smart phone for things like maps, restaurants and settling arguments. But the majority seem to use them as anti-social tools, whether intentionally or not. It's just disappointing when you're having a conversation and they ignore you for their phone. I don't personally have one, but nothing has really convinced me that I need it.

Is a trip to Disneyland worth the money?I have never been to Disneyland but as a kid I always wanted to go. I now have a young son and have thought about taking him. However, I have also heard that you pay a lot of money to stand in lines all day. Has anyone ever been and did you and your kids...

I'm getting ready to upgrade my contract and my phone to a droid. Does anyone have the LG Optimus? I don't need top of the line, nor do I use it while at work. I've heard these are good entry level smartphones. I've read numerous reviews, but thought I would get some more feedback.

Are women really worth the same pay as men?Most of the women that I work with are less dependable, absent more often, get pregnant, worry about their looks, have relationship problems, cry at work if something goes wrong, and on and on. Do they really deserve the same pay?
