What I Learned Using a Candy Bar Phone Again

You know, one of those Nokia's with an alarm clock and that game snake on it.
  1. When in doubt, shorten the text.
    Every text takes at least a minute to type, so your only option is to shorten it. And if you do need to send a paragraph, pick up the damn phone.
  2. Leave voicemails
    They're the lazy option for texting and will freak someone out thinking that a person died. Really, you just wanted to see if 1:30 worked for lunch!
  3. You can make your battery last if you try.
    I haven't charged my Nokia in a week. While this is not the norm for my "Let's find a Starbucks so I can charge my phone" iPhone, it is possible to make the battery last a bit longer if you aren't checking Instagram every minute. Don't worry, it will still be there when you return.
  4. T9 is cool
    I missed having a character limit on texts. It's like Twitter, but without the hashtags and sponsored posts.
  5. Make every emoji count.
    :( ;( :P :| are not the same as 😄😓😜😐 on a burner phone.
