A New Experience
Posted by Supertradmum
No one in the family knows what happened to the phone. It has disappeared, either in the house or in a car somewhere.
Result, for the first time in my adult life, even counting my time in the convent the first time, when I was allowed a phone, I am without a phone, as I cannot afford to buy one here now. The second time I was in the convent, as I was in the cloister, of course, I did not have my phone.
Well, I guess God has put me in a veritable "no cell zone". Interesting.
So far, I have not missed the cell.
I have skype and those of my friends on skype should get a hold of me there, please.
I shall see how far I can get in life without a cell phone. I am actually looking forward to not having a cell, as it means I am not available all the time.
Europeans are ahead of the game in cells, btw.
Europe has adopted GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) as its mobile communications standard--unlike the US, which left companies to each create their own standards, resulting in largely incompatible networks. Settling on the GSM standard makes it easy to buy a cell phone that works in every European and Asian country, but there are some things you need to know.
