The presenter joked that the commercial now looked like false advertising, but Cyrus explained that parton tried to use the cell phone with the help of other people, but did not give up the fax. “We use the phone, but she does a fax and then someone scans the fax, puts it in a text message, and that’s sent to me,” she explained.
“And it’s always signed, so now I’ve kind of started my own version of where I go in the notes, and I’ve started trying to make my own letters, because there’s something so amazing… It’s about a connection, it’s not casual, you know? You know she took the time to use, I think, the typewriter.”

In addition to fax, parton also used a cassette tape and a flip cell phone to send a message to Cyrus. “She did a demo for me once where she talks about being super high-tech, but it was all through a cassette tape, which she put in a flip phone, and someone put it in the iPhone and then they sent it to me.”
