This is kind of a split from a previous thread.
I'm in the market for a smart phone. For years I've prided myself on my phone being dumb as a brick, and stubbornly refused to upgrade to a phone with more bells and whistles that STILL doesn't make calls any more cheaply or reliably than my "dumb phone". Like the phone companies just GAVE UP on better sounding calls with more reliable connections in favor of "Yeah, that may be true, but OUR phone is also a TV remote!" (Woohoo.)
But recently my wife told me a few things that a smart phone can do. Namely, I can set it up to "call me" to remind me to do things.
Currently I create reminders in my yahoo calendar and get e-mail reminders. But since I only check my mail once or twice a day, I end up having to write some things on my hand so I don't forget them a few hours after seeing the reminder in my e-mail.
Granted, my understanding is that I can have my dumb phone call me, too. But if I use this feature, I'll use it ALOT, and I'll want an interface that's easier to use than my tiny dumb phone buttons.
So I need a smart phone recommendation. Is what I'm describing so basic that I could basically go with any smart phone, and should base my decision on something else? (Like monthly costs/plans etc.)
Anyway, I'm sure there are opinions out there on this one, so feel free to throw them at me. Holly and I are not quite sure where to start with our research. (Well, actually she knows what she's doing a bit. But I'm completely lost.)
What do YOU think?
