I actually hate using my smart phone for typing up messages. When typing up posts for here, I always use a computer. Less likely for autocorrect to make me look like an uneducated heathen. I don't need help autocorrect, I can do that very well on my own... =P

Like you guys, I don't really get a lot of calls... mostly spam. My friends will call me out of the blue every now and again. We mostly text or talk via Skype.

I loved my first phone, which was a Motorola Razr. That flip phone was awesome. I'd love to go back to it actually, but I don't have it anymore.

I'm not the world's biggest fan of social media though, mostly because I've seen the damage social media can cause... mostly back when MySpace was still a thing. Who remembers MySpace? XD I don't use Twitter much only because I feel a tad exposed there. I prefer Facebook because I have privacy settings in place.

Call me weird... lol

Another advantage to the Mobile that I've discovered is the option to check my emails on it. I run my business through a large desktop computer. Without the phone I used to turn on the big computer with associated monitor, printer etc. by default with the on button just to check to see if there were any emails that I needed to sort out a response for (most of my work comes via email). Now the emails also come to the phone (which tends to already be 'on') and so I only need to turn on the big system when I have an email to sort out. It therefore saves on power and time to have the phone.

It did take me a while to spot this advantage for my use, but it does explain the popularity of the mobile for e-communication, I think they have supplanted the PC/Computer because they tend to be always on. Checking is as instant as looking and with a sound alert you don't even need to look. As opposed to a computer which sometime take minutes to boot just to check for messages - no matter of what type.

The interesting thing though is to enduring use of written language - the advent of things like Duo are working on face to face communication, but the written word still continues to have vital importance in our communication life. I wonder how long that will last for?

Same here. Often when I go out for a walk or bicycling with exercise in mind, i leavy my phone to home. If I'm bicycling like miles away from home very fast as usually, I don't want to interrupt my exercise by answering the phone
