I will admit that having a smart phone is a blessing in so many ways. It’s a great way to keep in touch with people because I have my Facebook, email and phone all in one place. With maps and GPS it is a lot more difficult to get completely lost. Ryan and I keep schedules, do mobil banking, write lists and so much more. However, technology keeps moving forward and one of my least favorite tasks is getting a new phone. I don’t like relearning how things work and re-setting up all the apps and such that I use on a regular and not-so-regular basis. That is why I’ve waited for so long for this latest upgrade (despite having the new phone at least 6 months since it is Ryan’s old one from his last upgrade). However, when the majority of my main apps stopped working because they are “no longer compatible with this device”, I had to take the plunge.Ryan is now helping me set up my One Plus One. The One Plus phones are a great and relatively inexpensive alternative to the current phone market. I’m not promoting these phones for profit, Ryan and I have simply found that this was a good choice for us. Although larger than my preference, this phone will hopefully work well for a long time. It is not tied to a specific network and will be able to adapt to Australia too. So with that said, here’s to new phones and new technology!
