    I picked up the retro 3310 a few years ago cuz it was a cheap "can't find my phone" phone. I've had a couple of Nokias in the past (another flip they did for Verizon years ago; can't remember the...

    Well, 3G's days are numbered at AT&T, too. I've been using a Nokia 3310 3G that I won at an auction. For a dumb phone I like it a lot. Feels great to use, good sound, classic Nokia interface (but...

    I don't know of any candy bar feature phones that run on AT&T LTE.

    If AT&T's network is good and you're willing to change vendors, Consumer Cellular runs on AT&T or T-Mobile (tell them which you...

    Indeed. A lady never tells her age. :) Actually, she's more great-grandma aged, so pick toward the high end of the range.

    My grandma-aged mother addresses that problem with her phone by never taking it off the charger unless she's taking it somewhere :) (Jitterbug flip fwiw and, yes, I've suggested multiple times that...

    Not as good as the RP deal. $10 for 90 days, sure, but 10 cents a minute.

    I know you wrote that you wanted to go postpaid, but Consumer Cellular might be a good deal for your dad. $20 (plus taxes) a month for UTT, American-based customer support that specializes in older...

    Both of those iPads are old enough that neither can be upgraded to the current version of iOS (or, of course, any forthcoming versions). That has implications for security, particularly on devices...

    I do. Bought it at an on-line auction to replace an older flip phone.

    I love the feel of the thing, but I've always loved the feel of Nokia phones. They just get the texture of the thing right;...

    I can't imagine why it might be different, and it takes only a few minutes to ask. Some of our incidents occurred before CC even offered T-Mo service, so I think it's a CC process problem, not a...

    Yeah, not sure why they don't provision some features automatically. "Oh, you're bringing an iPhone 8? Let me switch on ___, ___, and ___." Over multiple interactions over a few years now, I've...

    We've been with CC for four years and customer service has been fine every time we've had to call (including a weird provisioning problem with my wife's phone). Sometimes the wait gets a little long,...

    Oh, no doubt -- on all counts. Students in business schools in future years will be reading about how Nokia and RIM/Blackberry were kings of the hill and fell -- hard.

    Umm, they were. They did.

    Before the iPhone created a paradigm shift (touch/skeumorphism) Nokia had some very talented phones. Their 9500 offered HTML Web pages and a full keyboard years before...

    iPhone SE here; at home the AT&T signal (through Consumer Cellular) is pretty weak. So I have Wi-Fi Calling on all the time. It's indistinguishable from cell service as far as I can tell (except that...

    The 6s probably is on it's latest version of iOS. After that, features in a new OS and security updates likely will be hard to come by. If that's something that will concern you, you might want to...

    I've been looking at that myself. SynciOS and AnyTrans seem to bubble up toward the top of most lists I saw. Which one you check out depends on whether it has to run on Windows or macOS or if you...

    Well, if you really want nothing bigger than 9.7 inches, your two choices are the mini and the "iPad (2019)". The iPad Air runs bigger than that.

    From there, it depends on your budget, I think....

    Yup. My experience as well. Too many people waiting around and lots of "oh, no, you need to see the guy over there in the green beanie." Even a wait once you swim upstream to the Genius Bar. Not sure...

    I guess the price will ensure a profit for the few people who want such a phone (with or without camera). You can buy a bunch of cheapo Androi phones for the full retail price and get a lot more...

    I had one of those and LOVED it. Symbian is no iOS but that phone could do some pretty amazing things for its time. Sadly (on-topic) Windows Mobile never enjoyed that kind of app popularity.

    Still have them on one line but likely will "retire" them soon as I'm retiring the phone on that line (old Sony Ericsson 3G flip phone). My most recent encounter with their customer service a couple...
