Re: You can pry my password from my cold, dead lips.

I simply don't use a so-called smart phone or any other thingie that requires an Internet connection to be useful

I'd go back to a "feature phone" myself if I could find one with a QWERTY keyboard. My problem is that my family members prefer SMS over voice, and I loathe texting with a 12-key keypad.

That said, I do use the GPS functionality on my phone occasionally, I do take pictures with it once in a while, and I have been using it in lieu of carrying a physical paperback when I know I'll have a wait somewhere. I could live without it, just as I did for several decades, but it does come in handy.

But then my phone doesn't contain "a treasure trove of personal information", either. Nearly everything that's on it could be found from some other discoverable source, except maybe my shopping lists and which novels I've downloaded from Project Gutenberg.
