My Elderly Iphone is coming to the end of it's use full life and I wondered what would be the best replacement.

A "Church phone" needs to meet certain criteria.

It must have a Bible app of some sort so you have an excuse to have in turned on during sermons.

It must have a good quiet mode so it can be left on during sermons.

it must be easy to text during sermons.

It must be able to play Utube loudly to help in rehearsals.

Some of the above requirements are a little tong in cheek but it gives us two treads a serious one and a 

fun one.

Your thoughts please!

David Bull.

I'm getting too old for some o' this stuff.  I thought a Mobile was a thing you hung from the ceiling and it had various sizes and weights of artwork that swung around with the air currents in the room.

Hi Greg,

I think we've been caught by the curse of Babel rather than an age thing. In England a portable phone is called a "Mobile Phone" which gets abbreviated to "Mobile". I understand in some places the same device is referred to as a "Cell Phone", I suspect you live in a "Cell Phone" area.

In the U.S. a cellular phone is almost universally called a "cell phone", and has no associations whatever with prisons.  However, when filling out forms, the blank for cell phone is usually entitled "mobile", which then allows for other mobile phones which are not cellular (whatever "cellular" means).  Mobile is also a rather rough-and-tumble port city (at least its bus station is, where I once passed a dreary Christmas morning) in Alabama.  And "la Donna e Mobile" is a really funny, delightful operatic aria (I think it means something like "Swingin' Lady")

Cellular used to be used to refer to drawers - underpants with airpockets in the fabric, as used by military personnel.

I always thought it was the orange peel effect that women of a certain age suffer from! : )
