Re: I hate, detest, loathe modern technology! Rant alert.

I'll be buying a new phone next month. I'll buy it outright (for less than 200 - why spend more?) so now monthly internet charge except the basic 7 to GiggGaff. No PAYG or anything else.
I'll stick with Samsung too so the icons and apps haven't changed much.
I have one password which I will have the new phone, also use the same SIM and phone number.
I also use a desk PC and that is no hassle either, I keep things simple. And it all works fine.
People have just too many devices with passwords all over the place unnecessarily. Minimise your life and there will be less to worry about.
