    wow .... that is exactly "me". I'm not giving up "quietly" on my old flip phone either. As for texting ... my eyes were in such bad shape (until I got these fancy trifocal contact lenses in 2017) that it was really challenging to see those tiny characters on the phone to answer text messages. All my friends that knew me recognized that when I answered their text message with something like "gt9wm6b92jswp" .... I did read what they sent. I can see better now, but it still takes me 5 minutes to respond to a simple text .... unless it's just requesting a "Y" or a "N" - if it's important enough to respond in the first place it's important enough to just call.

    as for (anti) social media .... nope, don't do that either. I follow 6-7 gun forums, go to Church, to the old man amusement park (shooting range), the gun shop, beer store .... that's social enough.

    except the part of church where they have you get up and shake your neighbor's hand. I like to skip that part.

    I'm kind of the opposite, being near deaf as a cedar stump I can't hear to talk on a phone so the texting feature is a life saver for me. All that know me know to text, not call. Trouble is sometimes I don't hear the phone go off to let me know there's a text.

    every cell phone I've ever had (all startreck communicator flip phones) have a vibrate function .... just set it on vibrate, shove it down the front of your pants, and call yourself from another phone


    See, I don't have to use (anti) social media to entertain myself

    Yeah mine does the vibrate thing too but usually not enough for me to notice.

    I remember in my early construction days we had pagers, those things would really vibrate. We used to turn them on and all put them on the desk and see which one vibrated it's way off first.

    Ummmmm... Helllllo... you just tell Siri to "call 911"...😉 like duh.
    I was once asked if I was "a paranoid for carrying my Kahr".
    "Nope" I said, "just prepared".
    " prepared for what" he asked?
    "more stuff than you are"
