Knack. I text only under protest.
Alexander Graham Bell intended the telephone to be used for talking. I respect my elders, although there seem to be less of them every year.
Seriously, I like this phone so much that I found two for sale and bought them for spares in case mine dies. First one I had ate itself.
With Verizon, all I had to do was register each phone (activate) at no charge. Easy to do:
1. Call Verizon
2. Turn off the current phone
3. Give them the EIN (they check for stolen)
4. Power on the new phone
5. Dial *228 and choose option 1.
Phone will be activated and will reboot and voila! un nouveau téléphone.
I went through that procedure three times (new phone 1, new phone 2 and old phone (back in service). Then I went to Verizon and they transferred my contacts to both new phones. All that at no charge.
Cricket makes you go into the store to swap phones and charges you $10.00.
Love the Knack.
But ... Verizon has just come out with a $60.00 unlimited voice, text and data plan. May have to rethink the $30.00 Senior plan.
