    I crushed my tin foil hat and got a Google Pixel phone :D

    I'm in with the hip crowd now. I'm a smartphone user ... truth be told it's only really for business use so clients can reach me out of the office via whatever messenger they use.

    These things have updated a fair bit since my last smart phone in 2012. EE offered me a free phone and a contract so I thought heck why not. Strange how I can get a contract phone under my business name but not under my real name Probably a loophole there lol

    Hey, welcome to the 21st century lol! I would truly be lost without mine. I don’t actually remember not having a smartphone. I just need the convenience of accessing everything I want to access, at my fingertips. I switched to iPhone about 3 years ago now, but up until then I was a Google phone user.

    It is kind of a double edged sword in my opinion. Yes, you can always access any info that you need to access...but you’re also reachable at all hours of the day/night by anyone that has your contact info. It does make it hard for me to “step away” from work at times.

    I'm just setting up a couple of applications now. Google docs is very helpful for allowing me to read and edit them from the phone! And the Quickbooks application is so much easier than the website. I'm scrolling through the app store having to resist myself from installing games. I got this itch for 8 ball pool I'm warming up to the idea of having the phone improve parts of my life. I do get worried I'll be reliant on it though.

    I'd like to throw my phone away but my wife keeps saying "what if there's an emergency " so I'm stuck with it.

    Good plan but she's say you were a lot younger then.

    Simple.

    Divorce = No emergency = No phone now

    (I hope Mrs Phill isn't reading this )

    I can't stop seeing the 2 condom now you've said that!

    Just put one over my phone to see if it stops viruses. Can you still see me?
