It’s a model 8 something or other. I am so glad I got rid of that damned LG Android. Its autocorrect program was written by an idiot. It WOULD NOT let me send some words, but if I hit a letter instead of the space bar between words, it would send some dumb compound word that doesn’t exist. Just got the new phone today, so still learning about it. I have used iPhones at work for several years, but only for communicating with Dispatch. I never used the internet on it, for anything. It’s none of my boss’s business what I’m into. So anyway...cool!

I don't need the ghost of Steve jobs telling me what I need.

I have been using iPhones for years currently an XS or whatever. If any of the high end phones don’t do what you need I don’t know what to say. Just shut autocorrect off

In the 80s, my grandma moved on up to one of those phones where each numbered button was the size of a deck of cards.

I only pretend I love my iPhone to rile you up. I like when men get all sweaty.

Shows what you know. I'm sweaty even *without* being riled up.

The speaker phone mode on those things is amazing. The sound is so much more vibrant. Still not a fan of the proprietary connectors though.
