Feel better now knowing I'm not the only "cave man" ...
That "unplugged" reminder is a good idea !
But again, I would like to see something I can do with simple TXTs. Like sending Verizon a short code to get your current balance (minutes used, etc). Similarly a "STAT" text message to the car with a summary in the reply. This would be especially useful if -- for example -- we just got invited for the evening ... I biked to work, the wife's away from the car ... I need to check status before I can accept the invite (and adjust depending on situation), etc.
Again ... I know I am asking to support the "lowest common denominator" cave man style ("no child left behind"
) dumb-phone owner
... but, hey, asking can't hurt !
(Fancy technology is all good and fine and has its place. But why use "bloatware" ("memory hogs", "network bandwidth hog", etc etc), if a much more efficient app can supply 75%+ of the functionality ?)
