They're called "Smartphones". Which is why I, for one, would never buy one 'cos they're smarter than me. [And before certain other members add it, I know; it isn't difficult!]
They are, effectively, a tracking device on you which also allows you to make phone calls.
Old school £10 basic phone all the way for me
I do have a smartphone for "personal" , but i refuse to add that "whatsapp" rubbish to it. The girls at my "normal" job think im weird as I refuse to join in with it. . . . And lo n behold one of them has had to delete it already as she was sick of men sending her cock pics. She even got spammed by 2 girls that looked very much to be touting for business to me , she couldnt understand why 20yr old bi girls are spamming rude pics to an older lady who is clearly straight and looking for a man ..... I nearly said something , but kept quiet as I didnt want to look as if i know "too much" about adult sites/cam girls/escort spammers.
The 2 young stunners were clearly cam girls, photo sellers , or whatever. They must literally spam everyone of all age/gender.
That whats app sounds like a nightmare IMO.
A while ago I wrote a blog with tips on not using smartphone , ect , for punters. Last thing I need/want is them getting caught out , and some irate wifey bringing drama to my door.
