From The Huffington Post UK: Mobile phone technology has come a long way since the first mobile phone call was made 40 years ago today, changing life forever- but there is a lot more innovation to look forward to, according to one expert.
It’s amazing what we can do with our phones today. Our cell phones can give us the world and help us communicate in ways other than talking. Sometimes our phones can distract us and keep us from actually talking to one another. Our phones have in many ways become our brains since we store so much info on them too.

There are all sorts of regret. But tonight I want to talk about the poor service, poor reception and poor phone we have with T-Mobile. We feel its one of the biggest mistakes we have made. We should have been more patient last year when we did this. You live, learn and all that other jazz.
I am very guilty of doing this to other people. Yes its rude but its a indication of how plugged in we are these days. Doh!
We have been struggling with our T-Mobile phones for awhile now. Both Laura’s and my handsets would restart without us doing a thing, applications would load with out us touching the screen. The reception was problematic in our neighborhood. All these problems led us to call customer service and technical support.
Tatiana, a tech support agent helped us troubleshoot our problems. She did great job talking us through settings and seeing what could be done to resolve our issues. Eventually we had to do a factory reset of our phones and we won’t be running any apps like Instagram, Evernote or FourSquare for a few days.
There seems to be a reception issue in our part of town and they promise it will be looked into within three days. Its been a frustrating time with our mobile phones but we are trying to make it work.
The telephone is not a toy but a useful and valuable tool.

Phones are an essential part of our lives. When they have problems or don’t do what they need too then its frustrating. My wife’s phone is having issues we are trying to resolve. Her phone will send text but won’t receive them or receive calls for some reason. I will be going to the T-Mobile store for some advice and hopefully a fix.
To me this is good news for competition and will hopefully keep prices in check.
