Saskatoon, the original toontown, is in the province of Saskatchewan. It's about a five hour drive north of the northeast corner of Montana, but that is still a hell of a long waysouth of Alaska.

I can buy a used phone and use it as just qa cell phone without a data pack. That’s because I own the phone am am not buying it on a multi year plan.



The cheapest data plan I can get here in Saskatoon will cost me fifty per cent more than my cell plan.

No thanks.

Don’t need it.

There are some low cost plans that include a small amout of data which could work for you to just use Siri for calling. Pure Talk has a plan for $20 a month that includes unlimited calls and text and half Gig of data. you can add a Gig for $5 more a month. For those that have any type of Medicaid help can get a free phone plan tor 1000 min andunlimited text and a Gig of data.

When you use your voice to ask to have a phone call made, you are using Siri. I also don’t know if you can get by without buying some kind of a data package. I was always told that you had to have something, good luck.

IK,

Can I make a call on the I phone using my voice without using Siri.

Can I just tell the phone to call a numberSSS

If you have a WiFi connection then you can use it through the WiFi.

Well, No. I am more interested in using the phone as a cell phone and not a smart phone. I don’t want to pay for a data pack which I would hardly ever want to use.

I just do not like the idea of having to be on line to use a phone.

Yes, I have a basic cell phone but a smart phone may have some additional features I can use without having to have a data package.

well;

if your thinking of getting a new phone, and want to use Siri, you may want to lern how to spell the name.

it's not, S e r i, it's, S I r i.

just like yu would want folks to spell your name correctly.

The impossible is the untried, Never under estimate the power of a dream.

As usual, I’m thinking about getting a new phone; well, a new used phone.

Is it true that in order to dictate a text message, I have to be online with Seri?

Also can I use voice commands to make calls without being online with Seri?

I’m thinking about getting an I phone 6 or 7.

Thanks,

Monte
