Dangers of mobile phones

Well...not really, just an eye-catching title.

As some of you readers may know, I have been an important advocate in being "fashionably unavailable" when carrying around a mobile phone. My mobile is not a smartphone. It does not have apps, it does not track me, it does not play video, and is 99% of the time either off or on vibrate. Did I miss your call? Sorry, I have a life. I will call back. That is why there is voicemail.

Where am I going with this? Ah, yes. The provider I am using has been progressively been offering lower and lower monthly plans since I started with them...oh, maybe..7 or 8 years ago. Since my phone is not smart, I can easily switch to one of these and not worry about missing out on something. So, starting next month, I will be doing that. I like weaning myself off of this technology because although it is widely used by people, I don't have to be attached to it. I was considering just getting a landline, but then I remembered the popularity of texting, so for now it stays. Well...considering that the monthly plans are getting to be more affordable than a landline at times, it is a bit worth it.

The only internet I really use on my phone is to read the news. I call, text, and read the news. Sometimes I upload pictures or "check-in" on FB with my location. Usually, I can wait until I get home to do everything else. Internet in the house means less phone usage outside and more reading of books! YAY!!!
