So I live in Missouri and my other book club members live in Illinois. So we have our meetings over the phone, with one person calling and connecting to another. It works out pretty well. The one meeting we had in person was cool, but this is the next best thing. Maybe a video cam on the computer would be cool as well. I may have to check into that. Anyway, I love my little phone, but plan to upgrade in June to one with a full keyboard. I do a lot of texting.
