Still rocking a Nokia flip phone.

I get strange reactions when I take this thing out like people didn't know flip phones still exist. It has more capability than you might think. It has Bluetooth and I run a headset with it. It actually can run a crude web browser and includes YouTube. It can do email. I can get on Facebook.

Mostly went this route for durability. I have dropped it once on a hard warehouse floor. The charging acted weird but I reseated the battery and rebooted it and no issue after that.

I have a coworker who’s got one, an flip phone, and he carries his iPad with 5G for breaks at his desk or lunch….he told me he doesn’t want the company knowing what sites he visits. He’s even got those screen protectors where you can make out the screen when you reach a certain angle. This guy is in his 60s. Yo, he uses his iPod pros for both his phone and tablet lol

Well, I also have a Samsung Tablet. I have a practical use for it though aside from internet as I have a Tablet Dash mount and use it for GPS or Google Earth with the nice huge screen, but also streaming music and podcasts.

With my main internet covered with that, I like the small durability and easy portability of the flip phone for receiving texts from dispatch or calls.

I've got an ultra badass $40 Moto G Pure now. I love being forced to "upgrade" to a newer cheap phone that's worse than my 2018 phone that worked perfectly fine with Tracfone.
