Last night Julia went on line and arranged an upgrade for me with our airtime provider. Though you do have to pay for it somewhere along the line, it seems like a free phone and is not too bad.
The problem was that they set the ball rolling by sending me a code in a text. It’s tricky receiving a text on a touch screen phone when the screen is in pieces and stabs you in the fingers when you try to use it. Even when you try to use it carefully.
The new one is bigger than the old one, which seems to be the trend. It is also more complicated. I haven’t finished setting it up yet, but I have managed to fit the screen protector and insert it into the protective case. Yes, definitely a case of locking the stable door after the horse has bolted.
(Did you know screen protectors come with their own screen protector protectors? I didn’t.)
I have also activated the fingerprint security system. Time will tell if this was a good decision.
Call me a pessimist if you will, but all I can think of at the moment is various ways I could lose my finger, and how I would unlock my phone if that happened.
The photos are from the Mencap garden this morning. There was no group in, and Julia needed someone to hold the other end of the tape measure.
