    Default SmartPhones and CoTH... Whos Guilty?

    So as I sit here, or rather lay here, browsing threads and posting replies, I'm wondering who else is guilty of such ease of access a cell phone allows

    I am always on my phone on the chron. Dead easy and always lurk through threads at night.
    I am on my phone 90% of the time. Please ignore typos, misplaced lower case letters, and the random word butchered by autocowreck.

    I mostly stay away from COTH on my phone because I'm too busy playing Words with Friends or something :-P That and I really wish there was an app for the forums!

    Guilty! It actually keeps me from posting though, because the text box on here is difficult to type in for some reason, it scrambles random words with no warning

    Guilty. I rarely look at an actual computer these days.

    Our cell phones are our only Internet access at the moment, so every time I'm on coth I'm on my phone :-) the nature of my job also allows me time to be on my phone, online or texting, so I'm usually on coth more than I'll admit ;-)

    ooohhhhh nnnooooooo.,,,,,,


    I just got my first iPhone a couple of weeks ago after being stubbornly resolute that I didn't need a smartphone. My old flip phone was held together with packing tape so I thought it was time to join the masses. I thought I would find it annoying and confusing to use. But I'm really enjoying the phone.


    But I didn't think to browse COTH on my phone....... i'm in trouble now.....

    It sure comes in handy while waiting at the Dr's office.
    Better than reading thru some of those magazines there.

    Now, posting, I have not tried that.
    My phone doesn't like my words and invents it's own, that really don't fit there.
    Worse, won't let me correct them.
    It is a stubborn little gizmo.

    Hahaha Sooo true, I have had to edit a few posts multiple times after going back to read it along with other responses

    It's a guilty pleasure and makes it Ohhh so easy! ( as I sit waiting to get a table for breakfast )

    I am on COTH using my iPhone while Mr. SE is driving us to Denver. .

    winfieldfarm - I just keep a browser open to COTH all the time so it's handy. If I want to post or read PMs I have to sign in but it's easy to sign in. Mostly I lurk and read. I really like my iPhone and am sure you'll enjoy yours.

    Everyone's right about reading COTH while waiting..... at the doctor's, dentist's, restaurants, during commercials, etc. I also grab my phone if I'm not able to sleep.

    Guilty, but mostly just when DH is driving us somewhere or I am in stealth mode at work.

    And those were my exact hubbys words as I type this response!

    I do wish at the end of my posts, theres the " sent from Android Mobile' so that there is some excuse, though however slight, for some of the crazy grammar/punctuation booboos....
