On the fence

October 13, 2008


So, thanks to US Cellular guy, I went ahead and bought a memory card for the phone, and yes – it is wicked easy to download photos now.  (Lloyd’s upset with me, though, because I didn’t get enough gee-bees for my esses-with-slashes.)  I dunno – keep the phone or return it?  Yeah, it takes pictures, but the shutter speed’s not very fast.  It does great in bright light, but it seems that any picture with motion in it turns out poorly.  On the other hand, the only thing I really take pictures for is this website.  You people seem very forgiving of my blurry skills, so does it really matter?  Would I walk around with just the phone and not carry my regular camera?  What if I should meet a fast-moving famous person?  How would I prove it happened?

This is the very first to-the-tiny-memory-card photo.  I was walking back from the phone store.

First picture with the tiny, tiny chip.

It’s also an mp3 player, but I have enough people singing in my head to keep me entertained.  What a quandry….

    Not bad!

    I can post photos directly to my blog from my cellphone, so I imagine you may be able to, also.

      Doesn’t that require a web plan? Lauren, do you have a web plan? Or just the buck-a-minute thing?


      • Kitt Said on:

        You don’t need a web plan to email photos to your blog (or to yourself to adjust and upload). It may cost you to send a picture message, depending on your phone plan, but usually not more than 10 cents. It’s essentially the same thing as texting, just with different data.

    Ooo! Ooo! Get a Jitterbug! Then go out and buy a new camera if you want.

    I love having a camera in my phone. I hate carrying multiple things and I try very hard not to carry a purse. Therefore, my phone and camera and I are best friends. I use the tiny little card (I like to call it a flake although that is not an official term) and download/upload pictures in a snap. And now that I have a camera with me all the time I am getting lots more pictures -- with cute, ornery, lovable kids that’s a good thing. Keep the phone!


    • Deanne Said on:

      I love that -- my flake. I’m getting a phone with a camera soon, so I’m going to need to figure all of this out!

    I didn’t know you could get a phone with a “good” camera in it. Dnag. I’m so behind the times. I think my phone only has 1.21 gigawatts.

    Excellent picture by the way…
