I have fought it since the beginning of time. I refused to get a "smart" phone. A plain old phone phone has always been good enough for me.

Anyway, with going back to school, I got tired of always having to whip out my laptop on campus to check grades and emails and stuff and I got a little jealous of these young kids who just whip out there phones and do it all.

So I let my brother talk me into getting this Samsung Galaxy s3 thing.. and I have to say... its absolutely amazing. I know I am a sellout know... but it really is a pretty rad little machine.

I just got my Galaxy S3 yesterday as an upgrade from an LG Thrill. The S3 is much more awesomer than the Thrill. I'm still exploring its capabilities, but this is just such an awesome phone. I've been trying to get SWMBO to move up to a smart phone, but as of yet she still won't move away from her flip phone.
The only thing more asinine than stupid rules is the enforcement of rules simply because they are the rules.

I am ordering an S3 in the next day or so...I honestly can't wait for it. I really dislike the HTC incredible (the original one), which is what I am posting this from.

Just wait for the day you brew with a digital thermometer. It will blow your mind.

I got my smart phone in 10' to help in the home buying process. I literally bought a home with my phone - I shopped the market, found both my agent the loan officer (may she rot), signed escrow papers using a funny little program where you select from hundreds of signatures to find the one that most resembles your own. Did everything from that Droid2 but go to title. Without a smart phone I wouldn't really even be a presence on this forum, because I don't have a desk job and rarely use the computer at home. Now I just use the phone for everything. Can't remember the last time I used even the laptop.

Hmmm I have the Iphone 4S, not just because I love it but because the company I work for gave it to me.

I sure do love the HBT app!

I tell all my friends who haven't got smart phones yet, to hold out as long as they can. The damn thing will ruin you. How did I function with out these damn things? I'm old enough to have been an adult when there was no real cell phones....let alone these things. It's like crack or something. I can never go back to a flip phone, even though it would save me a ton of cash. I'm an addict.
