    Always enjoyed hearing what people did to improve signal quality.
    When younger I used to fight the good fight for FM reception with
    a custom cut unit mounted six inches lower than required for the flashing red light.
    Can still recall how I felt when Pioneer came out with a supertuner that
    that had an ability to pull in faint signals with clarity.
    Could not help but smile at the add for the briefcase brick.
    That which matters most

            Try that with a smart phone, and see what happens. Even if the phone survives, it's damn hard to use them touch screens with blood soaked fingers..

            Or, if you wanted to use the 3310 as a vibrator you could do it with out lubrication, and you didn't need a surgeon to remove it if things went too far, or got outta hand, excuse the pun.. Try that with a smart phone and that's a trip to the emergency room and at least 3-4 different kinds of law suits.

            On the charge of assault with battery, how do you plead?
            Not guilty, your honour, the battery on the phone was removed.

            Can you do that with a smart phone? No, you can't.

            So next time people say a smart phone can do everything better than a dumb phone, remind em of the simple things that really matter. Fuck your instagrams and self help apps.

            And speaking of vibrators and phone sex, that 3310 battery will last all week. Unlike a smart phone battery, which is good for one night of fun if you start with a full charge.

            So yea, next time you call me and I don't answer right away, don't hang up 'cause I might be busy doing something else with my phone. Hang in there for a while or you might leave me hanging down, so to speak.. I'm trying to get to the phone but I can't come that fast 'cause the phone is out of reach.

            ..I'll get me coat..


            This got me thinking
            From here on, I'll definitely be hesitant the next time someone tries to hand me their phone in order to tap in my digits.

              I can't stand smartphones. I want to say that I have never owned one, but that isn't exactly true.

              I used to love the internet back in the days when Linux was a thing. I know too much about computers and the internet to want to carry a smartphone, but perhaps you might enjoy carrying a phone that can be flashed with replicant:

              https://replicant.us/

              or, if that is way too niche and techy-nerdy for your tastes, maybe something as simple as installing F-Droid would help:

              https://f-droid.org/

              Since, after all, it is a googlephone and Android is essentially a Linux distro underneath all of the surveillance capitalism. People can and do customize it a lot.

              I haven't read all of the replies. Since your username is "homeless guy", you'll probably want to try some of my less invasive suggestions first, but if all else fails, this is my own "smartphone":

              https://www.vice.com/en/article/xw4k...-phone-network

              You can follow the links. I just use a jabber client on my laptop and a few little white oversimplifications that aren't even really lies.

              JMP probably won't work for most people, but depending on your finances, needs, and level of interest, there's probably something out there that will.

              You can always ask someone more knowledgeable than my not-so-illustrious self on the replicant IRC channel:

              https://freenode.net/

              because you are not alone and you are not going crazy; smartphones suck.

              Yes, they're all mine, yes, I know what causes this, and if you think my hands, clone shelves, veg tent, veg rooms, seed storage jars, back yard, and bud/breeding tent are full, you should see my heart.

                I got a friend an Alcafail genie or something like that, as a stop-gap. It was only cheap but the cost of walking to the shop for it made it bad value. That's before paying for it.

                Today I would buy the A31 dual sim. It's where the glossy screens start. £175. Great battery. Does phone stuff, fast.

                    35 years ago I was given a car phone. The bit you put to your ear was like any home phone. There was no dialing, you selected the channel for your region. The operator connected you. The box of tricks under the seat was such a masterpiece I have seen nothing like it to today. I wish I had pics. A clam shell with central chassis, CB radio sized. Both top&bottom was filled with RF canned modules, with dimensions like sleepers. Maybe 8 lined up, filling the set, top and bottom. Each removable from the chassis. So like 16 individual cans. It was exquisite. All beautifully machined, making any talk of CB or Ham gear a total insult. Think space station.

                      fuck phones. don't own (or need) one now, won't in the future either. my wife wants me to have one. her- "but, what if i need to get in touch with you, ask you a question, or tell you something when you are out hunting or fishing?" me- "why the hell do you think i go hunting or fishing?" her- "but what if you fall & are badly injured while up in the mountains?" me- "then i get to die in the prettiest place on earth instead of a fucking hospital bed while bankrupting the family..."
                      smoking more pot is NOT the answer to my problems. my problem is that i need more problems that smoking more pot IS the answer to...

                        I use 2, 1 has sim cards the other doesn't. I create a hotspot from 1 and connect with the other. The second runs a VPN so the first has no idea what the second is connected to. I surf here with the 2nd and only take the first out of the house. That way the phone I walk around with stays clean.

                          They can still track your MAC (Machine Address Code).

                            Really? On both phones at the same time?

                                My VPN gives me a choice of locations, that's the same thing isn't it, or is it?
