Don't Give me a Smart Phone - Give me a Phone that is Smart
Once more I am challenged by the upgrade gremlins of another iphone 5 upgrade (ios7+)
Messages not sent, emails and text messages delayed or not even sent.
Maybe it is just me that is inconvenienced by these latest attempts to try and improve the quality of my life?
Or perhaps Apple just do not know what I really want and so try to give me everything in the hope that they will get it right for me.
If this is the case then I can tell you what I want from my iphone:-
I want to be able to make and receive calls
Yes I want to be able to make and receive call that can be heard clearly by both parties.
Yes I want to have a clear signal that allows me to make and receive calls.
I want to be able to send and receive texts
Yes I want to be able to send and receive texts almost instantaneously ( Even the very old Nokia phones could do this before the first iPhone even existed) rather than at the choice of iMessage which may or may not send my message or may or may not tell me it has not sent it or even may decide on its own when it will send my message.
I want to receive and send emails
Yes I want to be able to send and receive emails when I am away from my desk and I want to choose which emails I want to keep on my iPhone and computer rather than have latest upgrade decide that for me. (Deleting emails from my server even though it has ticked never to remove from server- too late all gone!)
You see Apple, what I want is a phone first, that can do all of the above both reliably and efficiently and if after you have accomplished this the yes I would love you to enhance my life through a new wizzy app or redesigned interface.
What I want is a phone that is smart that just works rather than a smart phone which is too smart for its own good.
