I swear, it doesn't take much to please and entertain me.  I got my new phone.....YEAH!  My poor son regrets that he decided to go to Verizon with me.  I had every camera phone out testing picture quality.  Once I got done with that, then I had to call my BF from each phone to check the sound quality.  I give my hats off to the Verizon employees.  They are super patient and always very helpful and probably were pulling their hair out after I left.  I did find out that my last phone had no pixels; just some sad resolution.  This phone has 1.3; not the best but it's a novelty thing.  The pics aren't bad though.  I took a couple of Megan in the house without the flash.  Pretty good.  The next step up is 3 megapixs which is pretty darned good and pretty darned expensive....close to $300 for all the ones that had 3 megapixs and definitely way out of my price range.  This one was $139 with a $50 rebate.  My first one was $79 with a $50 rebate. The old lesson is you only get what you pay for.

Now, I just need my Ms. Penny to teach me to I have never sent a text message. And I haven't installed the pix disc yet although they said I can probably just install into my Kodak program.  That's another night of messing around.  Can't do it tonight coz I have to do the FASFA renewals. 

I'm off to buy my kids their Easter goodies and then I'm stopping at JoAnn fabrics to check out some things for new decor in the family room.  I love JoAnn Fabrics.

We are having a super lovely day today in western Pa.  75 & sunny.  The rain rolls back in tomorrow just in time for sunrise service at 6 am.

Is your new phone pink? LOL Rich and I went somewhere the other day and BOTH of us had left our cells at home on the chargers. We felt....naked.    I asked him why we felt so disconnected.  So to speak. Sounds like you got exactly what you wanted.  I too had never text messaged till we got out last new phones. Our daughter can text almost as fast as she can type.  I told her she was on her phone too much.  LOL Have a good one.  Barb
