I'm thinking of breaking the tech wall and downgrading my phone, going back to a simple flip phone, like the Motorola V3t... I love the idea of the smart phone and superphones, but the phone manufacturers seem to have put the "phone" aspect of these devices in the background. I love apps and media and all that, but shouldn't the "phone" functions come first? By now, shouldn't they just be the best damned phones in the history of technology? And shouldn't they work the way we need to use them, all safety considerations included, like total hands-free voice dialing and answering? I know my old, old V3t could do that easily, never had to touch the phone to make or answer or abandon a call, but every upgrade I've made to date has been a downgrade in that area. I'm on the T-Mobile G1 now, and its consideration of its phone functions are abysmal. I'm researching to upgrade, but I'm not seeing a lot of attention being paid to the "phone" aspects of the new phones. Besides the fact that all the new use technology is far ahead of the battery tech. Anyone else feeling this way?
