Messing with mobile


Wordpress says to share my story here. All about narrative these days. In my 14th day of phone/ADSL2 outage for the month. This is from the second lot of scheduled upgrades for my area. My phone never comes back when the outage is over. Waiting for a port swap. This could take a while. Meanwhile I am having to run my connected life disconnected. I feel like a cat up a tree tentatively picking my way through the branches. The mifi worked until it gobbled up my last 500mb data yesterday. Great.  No more mifi. At $10 a gigabyte for mobile data that is not on. So I bought a sim, revived my old Galaxy Express phone and am totally mobile now…trying to economise , find the work arounds and use my data efficiently. I cleaned up the Express. No updates, no notifications and no sites which muck me about and just chew up data because that is how they are designed. They make you click and stuff up and then you have to redo. Meanwhile data is draining. Those sorts of sites are to be avoided. I am back to bluetoothing files, using my stylus for screen accuracy and finding I can do things better on a mobile. It is not the freedom of a wifi connected person with unlimited access. I am a user not a consumer. Either way mobile data plans need to be more generous. There are some improvements. Limited data means limited experience and limited access. I’ ll just have to keep gingerly picking through these branches and hope my free, connected world comes back soon. I don’t  feel upgraded . I do have a weakth of learning challenges, though. This , for instance, is my first blog post ever from a mobile phone. Thank heavens for mobile apps.
