Connectivity problems #1

Sitting in the office on a pretty normal Tuesday, I suddenly receive a text message from my cellphone provider. They claim that I have used all my data for this month, and if I want to continue to surf the web I need to pay money to get more.wpid-wp-1429695953498.jpeg

As I changed my plan not that long ago, when I got my new phone, it also came with more data than I had before. I thought it was silly because I never really managed to use all the data then. I can’t say that I’ve changed my surfing behavior that much (i.e. still addicted to social media, but not more addicted to social media) so I find it strange that I reached my limit. Thus, I refuse to spend money on more data. Instead I see this as a challenge, with ten days to go of the month I can survive, or can I?

It started already the same afternoon, when I were to head out on the countryside and realized that I didn’t know which bus I was supposed to be on. I had memorized the time it was due to leave however not the number, so I just had to call my Favorite Latte Mum and ask, in comparison with data I have unlimited free calls on my phone.

I’m also happy that I have an android phone as it still come with good old FM radio, so I could listen to music without any of the apps. During my very short relationship with an IPhone I was pretty shocked to realize that they do not have FM radio.wpid-img_20150421_161504.jpg

There was also free wi-fi on the bus. How hard can life be without data on your phone? Well, I survived the first day.

The small pleasures in life

In December I broke my precious phone and whiteout means or ways to buy a new Sony I was lost. My very good friend in cph was kind enough to let me borrow his old IPhone S4 with option to purchase.

Since then it hasn’t been easy as me and the iPhone just haven’t gotten along, today however that all changed. I could go to the phone store, extend my plan and walk out with a brand new Sony phone. It feels like coming home!

In time of need even the most dedicated android girl will go apple

Due to this girls clumsiness her phone completely died a while back. With a lack of funds the option of purchasing a new phone was out of the question and with just a very old, her very first, smartphone available her life has been tough. It appears that Facebook and Twitter are pretty much the only ones that support their old apps, nothing else have been working and due to that she has felt very cut of from the rest of the world.
Magically enough, one of her friends had an older version of iPhone to spare for a while, so now she’s on iPhone. There will be a transition period to get used to it, remember what apps that’s needed and the different layout of things. The most important thing is that the girl is back on line!1418949376380-1045440102
I also do realize how sadly addicted I’ve become to the availability of having a smartphone, however the addiction is more for me to be able to go online rather than being available to other people. That must at least be a good thing! Or maybe really sad…
