Who's making calls anymore, anyway?


I am, for one. My full time job requires that I have a phone at all times (government job). My part time job doesn't require it, as long as I can be reached in some fashion. But I also do a lot of consulting work on the side, and many of my clients prefer the professionalism of a voice connection rather than texting.

If it were up to me, I would never talk on the phone. My fiancée is the same way; we communicate almost exclusively by text and email when we're not together. But given my work requirements, a cellphone that's actually a decent, usable phone is critical. That became painfully apparent every time I used an Android phone; a dialer that crashes or is otherwise buggy on a phone is unacceptable. In those instances, I may as well have had a miniature tablet for all the good the "phone" part did me.
