Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Fred does your I phone battery drain fast on your phones? Wonder if I just need a new battery??
I had my battery replaced a while back. It lasts the whole day, sometimes more, dependiing on what I do with it. Sometimes I browse the internet, that takes a lot of battery, or using the GPS to find a place, a lot of things are on all the time, including screen light and that eats up power. As a phone only it has lasted me a couple days. I have an IPhone 6 which I inherited from my daughter who got a 7.

Iphones are just too restrictive for my liking. Androids don't limit you. It's like Apple and Microsoft vs Linux.
I'am on my third Motorola smart phone 32GB, really easy to navigate.

Actually, the "SIM card" is the phone, all else is just a support system to make it work as designed.

It's a memory card, if you buy a phone from a specific service provider such as mine, Sprint, they will not have one. If it's an "unlocked" phone from a provider but changed to another provider it may have one. Or so I understood once.

Wife's uncle gave me a Galaxy S7, but it is locked to Sprint. My AT&T guys says it can be unlocked and he can transfer the SIM card from my Samsung Rugby flip phone to it.

Sprint phones can be unlocked after they've been paid for through the 2-year contract.

My work phone is an old Motorola Droid. It has been a pretty good phone, but battery life is starting to get pretty short and the software barely runs any new apps.

Hey 4th , I hear you just talk at your phone and it will make your voice into a text automatically. You dont have to type anymore

I went to a verizon corporate store and got a proposal on a phone and plan. Total was $68 per month. That is after the salesgirl tried to cheat me at first saying all the plan prices went way up. I told her I already shopped online at verizon and told here about the price plan I found, so she said "Oh yeah I missed that plan" They are all a bunch of thieves

Im still shopping though
