Another thread is being taken over with discussion about phones, for and against as well as naming them in stories. I'm hoping to move it here.
I have a cell phone to receive and make voice communications while away from my residence and in emergencies. So the smart phones have a huge amount of crap extras I don't use and I avoid them like the plague.
One reason I, and many others, avoid the fancy phones is the sheer cost. not just the fancy phones cost a lot more here, but the cost of using them on the Internet is horrendous. The a monthly charge for 1 GB of data on a Cell Phone is the same as what I can get over 300 GB of data on an ADSL service at home, or 120 GB on a satellite service. Internet usage for a cell phone over 2 years is so profitable that many companies will give you a free phone for a 2 year contract.
Edit to add: I avoid giving names in stories in most cases because not all phone brands are available everywhere.
