That new "I" phone makes my $100 "DUMB" phone look pretty good. An guess what??? MY "dumb" phone will talk in places that the "Smart" phones will not. The wife's $750 "SMART" phone is just a paper weight in our house without the cell signal booster.

I know many like the "Smart" phones but I hate the things as they had very poor signal compared to the older phones that where talk only. Also the way you hold them makes the MIC be several inches away from your mouth. I have a HECK of time hearing someone that has one of them. Especially those that speak softly, like my wife and grand daughters. I rarely can understand what they are saying on the stupid things. The wife puts her headset on and it comes in clear as a bell.

Us older guys who spent some time on tractors and other loud stuff generally have some hearing loss, and cell phones are especially tough for me. I've found that if you tell your caller to put it on speaker, and you do the same, it will be clearer. You may have to tell them to speak softer, or further away from the phone, so it does not overmodulate.

I have a dumb phone, too- don't need all the foolishness that comes with a smart phone. I just use it to talk to people.
