cell phones--age related?

Final update: Thanks to all of you again! This really was helpful. I ended up with Consumer Cellular at $38/month for both of us with as much data as we need and an AARP discount. I believe they use AT&T where we usually are and that it is reliable coverage. Also happy that I don't need to deal with AT&T customer service. It was declining by the time we finally stopped using them for a landline and internet.

Thanks again--

Update: Thanks for all your thoughts. Decision made. Coverage matters, some but not a lot of data--Verizon is only $60 for 2 lines with their prepaid plan and autopay. Excellent deal and I hear everywhere that the coverage is great. It took me most of the day to work through the research but I avoided having to go to a store and stand in line so I'm happy.

Original post:
So--is it me? Is it because I'm over 30?

Trying to figure out the best cell phone plan for two people aged 64 and 65 is mind-boggling. I'm trying to research on the web because every phone store I enter has huge lines and it is very confusing there, just as it is on the web, but with crowds.

We had the need for more lines until now--two is enough for now. Our Sprint contract is ending, and it has been dropping calls like crazy for months so we are ready to move on.

I'm down to Verizon, T-Mobile and some others that have generic names. We do use phones for data and I use mine for work, so they need to be smart and reliable.

And do we need 5G or is it just hype?

Oh, and I own my Apple 7+ and we have an Essential phone we can take with us, if anyone other than Sprint knows they even exist. That was one we fell for and were totally taken.

Any advice appreciated. I think there is a niche market for cell phone consultations done by people who aren't as confused as I am.

This is the organization I've been following. It seems to have the best coverage and capacity.

KS-03 Again--HRC

I was reminded today that HRC won this district by a point in 2016. That was major.
We can do it!


We have several good Democrats running this year. Instead of highlighting all the good things about their chosen person, I am seeing negative blather about the other ones on various social media sites (haven't noticed on DU yet). Really, I think they're all decent.
The focus needs to go to November--who can win in an area that has voted repeatedly for Kevin Yoder? He can be unseated, but some of the candidates will not be able to do it. Really hoping that someone who can win in November wins next week.

Sometimes it seems like we're just not thinking it through.


I just read through the affidavit: https://www.justice.gov/opa/press-release/file/1080766/download

Great summary thread on Twitter by @SethAbramson. I would recommend reading it before reading the document, if you are a Twitter person.

NRA + Putin at prayer breakfast! + Flynn? + Jared/Don Jr/? + she's in jail and says she will cooperate = Hallelujah. I think it's all starting to come together by falling apart.

And she was arrested last week--the same week that Strzok was being grilled and then the 12 indictments arrived just as DT was headed for Helsinki.

This is beyond popcorn. This is chocolate covered almonds at the movies kind of fun.

All those empty billboards on I-70 have potential

Remember when there was an attempt to reduce billboards on I-70 so the opposition put up a zillion to be sure they'd be grandfathered if the bill passed, which it didn't? So now there are all those empty billboards.

Yesterday we drove the STL/KCMO route. My husband was asleep on the passenger side and my mind started imagining all these empty billboards with educational ads to wake up the farmers and manufacturing employees who are going to be financially hurt by DT. I imagined them with pictures of Trump with his hands in farming and manufacturing families' pockets and the caption, "He is taking your money." Or, "Are you broke? It's his fault." Or a picture of him modified to make him look wolfish with a sheepskin draped over his pathetic head and a caption of, "He is not your friend." (With all respect to wolves, whom I adore.)

I wish someone with skill and resources would draft an effective billboard campaign. Pretty sure those billboards are inexpensive at this point--there are some desperate looking "for sale or lease" signs placed on some of them.
