How can I convince my wife that we should get smart-phones?
So it's time to upgrade the phones in my household. Currently, we have two regular cell phones with the smallest texting plan that Verizon will allow. We're not huge phone users, however, since we had our first child, we have been using our camera's (regular cameras, not on the cell phone) much more to post pictures for family and friends. I think if we had smart-phones we would eliminated the need for tons of different devices, and when we go places, we would only need one device. I use a lot of web-based services (calendar, reminders, cloud storage, etc.) but am connected to wifi at work and at home, so I can get by without an internet-enabled phone, but having one would be nice.
So, any help on how I can convince her that the upgrade is worth the price? (It is worth it, right?) I think she'd really like one once she has one, but the price jump is significant (for us). Also, do you have any suggestions for how to keep the price down? Again, we're with Verizon if that helps.
