Apple’s iPhone is by far the best phone ever created! It has the best user interface, the most intuitive features and is the best collection of technology that you have ever held in your hand.
It allows you to be always connected to your customers, friends and even people you don’t really know who want to send you ‘Crazy Pirate’ requests on Facebook. And here lies the problem, when you are always connected people expect you to be available 100% of the time and reply to their requests. This ASAP mentally can leave you feeling stressed and uneasy about your time off.
So here’s the experiment. This week sees the arrival of my new Nokia cell phone, it’s basic… really basic! No touchscreen, no MP3 player, no flashy email client, no apps, no web browser, i’ve even opted for a Pay-As-You-Go tariff. I intend to use this phone for the next month and keep my iPhone at home.
At the end of the month, if I really want my iPhone back then I can start a new contract… otherwise, I would have found peace in my new(old) communications device!
