Somehow I made it to being a senior citizen. I own, and use, a desktop, laptop, GPS and netbook. My cell phone is an old Motorola E815 that I connect to an antenna amp when traveling. I don't use any of these devices for gaming. I use them for Voice comm., research, online forums, email, Ebay, tracking the stock market, Netflix and storing my digital photos and old music. I have a Skype account but don't use it much. I used to tether my E815 but found it hard to get decent speed that way. My bottom line question is, if I get a smartphone will I find it worth the extra monthly cost for a data plan? I know that you can't tell me anything 100%, I just want your thoughts. Thanks for your help.
