Lucky in a sense

Because of all the hoohahs with Whatsapp that I ended up buying a new (inexpensive) android phone. While I was questioning the wisdom in going that far, getting another digital & newer device, I found out I couldn't use Google any more on my old IPhone. Lucky that I have a new phone with me. Is your current phone OK with all the new updates? (I still use my old phone to read news.)

Thanks for that, thought Xiaomi is bad re: illegal data gathering?

@JimBo452020 wow! I am impressed. I did consider buying Xiaomi phone & security cameras before, but after reading articles in the news about security breach, I ended up buying something else. (heheh, I got some cheap China made cameras here, but I stopped using them because of the same issue!)

One of my colleagues recently dropped her old Iphone in the toilet. She fixed the dampness now, but told me since she paid for it with her own saving, she treasured it more (hence the reluctance to get a newer, cheaper android one).

I use my smartphone ONLY to take photos, I have a very basic cellphone to place and receive calls and I do not go on the Internet with it. I simplified my life.

@YrNemo I am at home most of the time and I read the news online using my computer and my BIG monitor. I have a very hard time using the small screen of the smartphone.

I have a second sim on my old Iphone now (because I like to have a second number just for emergency). I use that phone mainly for reading news (IPhone's daily news is great!). The odd thing is, strangers kept calling that number. I don't answer of course because I haven't given that new number out to anyone yet. But it is simply weird!

I am hoping to keep this new phone of mine for at least a few years (it has 4G only). Guess yours is with 5G already?

I am still learning how to use it (I am not too bright in this area), but my oldest kid just taught me how to use certain features on it).

If my old iPhone didn't give me problems, I doubt I would have got a new android phone. (but in the end, I still use my old iphone for news and Whatsapp hahaha.)

I love your profile photos. Many of them (like this one) are so pretty. You are not a movie star are you? (I am so dumb with new gadgets. I am still struggling with the new one which is almost half a year old now hahaha.)

i get so tired of everything needing an update and every place wants you to have their app. I find it annoying and frustrating.

I bought my last one for my daughter. She begged for one because all of her friends at school had iPhone. After I got it for her, she had a look and said, ' sorry, I don't like it any more!' (I was so tempted to smack her then!)

hehehe, you must have got one of the latest ones. Congrats. I thought I would get one for my youngest, but one of her older relatives got her an android instead (and everyone was happy!).
