I have a BlackBerry, a phone on which I am always contactable. On my BB, I have BBM, Whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter, I have my WordPress app and I have five e-mail addresses linked to my phone. I have hundreds of photos, some of my favourite songs and some video clips – mostly of my Cutie Pie jumping on the trampoline – on it. I have my webpage always open to Google, so that I can search for things quickly.
In recent weeks I have noticed that I am not as attached to my phone as I used to be and that is a good thing, because it made me very unsociable. So, I have decided… my next phone will be a downgrade. I want a phone that I can talk on, one that I can send an sms on and… well, I think that is it. I don’t want any more features other than those two.
My friends can call me old fashioned if they want to.
My advertisers can be angry with me, but I will use my phone till December and no further.
I will not be upgrading to the latest smart phone, which is VERY expensive I might add.
I will not give into peer pressure because of the fact that my friends have upgraded to the latest smart phones out there, like the Samsung Galaxy, the iPhone, the Lumia and more.
I will be me, with my easy to use phone and if people would like to call me odd, they are welcome to. 🙂 But, I think I have had enough of cellphones and all the technology in them.
