With the metamorphosing from analog to digital age, with the movement from Nokia 3310 to the new range of Android phones, we have moved from an era of just making phone calls with our mobile phones to making our mobile phones our “offices”.
The invention of social media has also aided in the addiction of people to their phones. People tend to spend close to 16hrs on their gadgets and are only separated from it when they fall asleep. To make use of our gadgets effectively to access the internet we need data subscription which brings us to the main point.
Data is the access to the internet through our mobile phones. It has become so essential that without it our phones are just for playing games and watching movies. So essentially we need data to maximize the functionality of our mobile phones.
Some may argue they aren’t addicted to their phones and give you a thousand and one reason why, but the fact states otherwise.
Like junkies needs drugs to stay “high” so many phone addicts or better still “phone junkies” needs data to be closer to their gadgets. The same way a junky can source for funds to get his drug same way many of us search for funds to subscribe our gadgets, most times not minding the means. You may be amazed at how much people spend on data monthly and it’s not always enough and they end up doing monthly subscription like twice or thrice monthly.
Funny how people lament on not having airtime to make calls but their phones are loaded with data. Internet and smartphones have come to stay and many more innovations that would glue us to our phones.
No matter how you make use of your phone, either for work or for pleasure as long as you use the internet, data subscription from your network provider is key. We are still fighting the use of hard drugs but there is a new hard drug in town known as “Data” and funny enough it has come to stay and its effect is dependent on how we use it. It can affect us positively or otherwise but the fact still remains it’s addictive and we can’t do without it.
