First smartphone. First iPhone.

Great Googly Moogly.

Running Mercury for a browser.

Three forums open concurrently.

Internet radio in the background.

Can't put it down.

And I don't even know what I'm doing... Oh. And an eBook. Crap.

Phone calls?

Who makes phone calls anymore?

Seems like it's all texts these days.

I'll check those out. Thanks F.

If you need to speak to anyone under the age of 25, you're wrong. They don't speak to anyone with audio. Send a text, tag someone, update your status, etc. Never, ever address them directly. They will look at you with a blank stare and know you're an imposter and not someone who wants to really communicate with them. You are merely an annoyance.

For quick reference, Like the 911 twitter feed in case you need immediate assistance because young people won't speak to the operator in case of emergency.

(just a little jaded with 3 teenagers in the house. If you need proof I have enough stories to write a book, which has crossed my mind)

BTW, don't put it in your back pocket if you don't want it broken, just in case obvious everyday physics are lost on you.

I just upgraded my phone as well - my old one was almost 3 years old.  I went with the regular 6 which is still pretty big - far bigger than my previous iphone.

These new ones are pretty amazing.  I also switched from Sprint to TMobile.   I'm sure that it's  the combination of new phone and fast network, but I almost feel like this is my first real smartphone.

Everything is so fast, I get download speeds over 100Mbps.
