Well... I am 71 and I'm finally getting a cell phone. After you stop laughing I will continue.... OK. A very basic question. Should I get the phone from Virgin (where they are out of stock at the moment) Or just go to Radio Shack and get it. I stink when it comes to technology so will I have to activate it or will the guy at Radio Shack do that for me. I was dreading asking this question but everybody here seems helpful so... Thanks for ANY help. Peter p.s. I am mainly going to use the phone to scan items for resale, Books etc. as my work cut my hours in HALF so I decided to sell stuff on the internet. It's a BIG challenge but It's just what I need at this point in my life. HOLY CRAP... I do have a tendency to ramble.
