Dumb Phone

I am being technologically taunted into getting a smarter phone; when my friends send a barrage of group texts, my phone only gets "receipts" of the messages, but can't retrieve them -- and this is worse than not receiving the messages at all, because the receipts alert me to the fact that everyone is making plans and making jokes about the plans, but (unless I annoy people for a summary) I'm not privy to the actual information.

You're lucky anyone includes you in their plans to go out. So there's a bright side.

I feel your pain, my tracphone is the same way. I saw a homeless guy in LA talking on my same model. I guess our $10/month budget is the same.
