Bought mom a new phone

Philippines
July 30, 2022 10:03pm CST
Hello there, My plan originally was to buy a bigger type of android for myself. But after I bought it I found out it can't even download netflix and other high resolution games. So, I went back to the mobile phone shop and replace it with another one. This time I gave it to my mother and she was surprised. Plus, I had her old phone diagnosed and its a lot faster now, specially with new SD (memory card) installed.

@Letranknight2015 That's good to know. At least, you're there to assist it if there's another issue.

@Letranknight2015 I see what will you do with the one that isn't up to your expectation. That is sometimes what is wrong with some brands of phone they looked good but looking at its performance is not that good anymore.

@rsa101 I know the brands are not what they used to. But she just needs a back up phone, she calls and use fb all the time.

I do not use my phone to watch movies or play games, I prefer to use a computer or TV for those activities.

I probably could too but they would charge me more and I do not want my bill to be too high.

Hello @rebelann yes but ever since I learned it can be done when ever I am out I would use it to watch just to distract myself.

@averygirl72 Well, I didn't buy phones for myself too. The first android touch screen was given by my Dad, the second one was from my brother. This was supposed to be my first time buying my own phone. But I change my mind and let mom have the phone instead.

When my old phone gave in a few months ago, my brother gave me his old phone @averygirl72 now I have two phones as well. Sadly, my old phone doesn't allow local sim.

I also gave my mother a new phone last June and she's happy with it. She was complaining that her old phone was already laggy and I also find the new phone too small for me. It's Samsung S21... So I just gave it to her...
