Hi all. Well, things may change in the near future for me and it may necessitate a cell phone. That's right: Irony: He who least desires a cell phone may need to get one out of necessity after all. Well, I'm going to hold off on it as long as possible. (Would rather get new computer and make my sith costume first!)
Here is what I am looking for.
Be unlocked obviously I want to be able to switch services and keep a phone I might like. Access to BIOS settings, deep OS files. Be able to enable and disable onboard hardware manually. Be able to enable and disable GPS.
Ability to customize its wallpaper and ringtones. Personal touch and let's face it, assigning differing ring tones to those dreaded
contacts we loathe speaking to is essential.
Calendar, appointments, notifications, and itinerary--pretty much comes standard on any cell phone, doesn't it?
Some NICE TO HAVE features:
Camera both still and/or motion. It's so nice to capture evidence. And there is fun in blackmailing people I can convince to get drunk and then talk them into doing stupid things.
Worked for Ric Flair, didn't it?
Ability to download embedded videos that may not have a download button. Sorry if I'm behind the times: Does this function already exist on a desktop? I've only seen it on a buddy's T-mobile samsung phone.
Versatility combination of touch screen and qwerty keyboard
Attachable credit card scanner ...thing. Just thinking it'd be kind of nice to be able to expand business to credit cards for clients, which pretty much implies online browsing and text.
Possibly be able to use certain programs I'd normally use on a PC. (For example, say I wish to download a 555 timer program for circuit prototyping.)
What's all the hype about for bluetooth?
Avoid Android if possible. I'm sure Android's OS is good, but I'm not really one to jump on bandwagons and such. It's too much hassle for me. Don't really want to connect my existing gmail account to mobile and am not all that thrilled about creating another account there for this purpose. Much of it having to do with what a bad combination it'd be doing business essentially online through the phone and social networking. If you think I'm talking out of my ass, go ask Kim Komando
what she thinks about the combination of online banking and social networking.
She's the one who told me in the first place!
