The iPhone Is Gone

Admin: Today I swapped from the iPhone to a flip phone. You can still call and text, but my texting response will be a little slower. Nothing else has changed.

    Excellent humor, Jay.

    But frankly it’s retiring, not dying. I’m looking into repurposing the hardware. For example, it’s good a good GPS signal and makes for a better locater than most purpose-made GPS handhelds. I think I can use wifi to download an app with maps I can keep. But I will never forget how it frequently panicked at incoming calls, often refusing to let me answer, freezing the whole phone for long seconds, and sometimes flat out crashing and requiring a reboot. It frequently dropped calls even when I was line-of-sight with a cell tower just a couple hundred meters away. It’s replacement is the phone I should have gotten in the first place.
