People Use Flip Phones For A Week

People Use Flip Phones For A Week

– K thanks, bye. (upbeat music) – It’s kinda sad but my
relationship with my phone is my longest, most intimate relationship. – Everybody who knows me
they know what’s going on in my life all the time because I’m always on Snapchat
Stories or Instagram Stories. – Pretty much anything I do
on my phone is a waste of time unless I am doing something for work. I have little to no idea
what I will be doing except for the fact that
it involves my phone and kind of going off
the grid a little bit? – Okay… Am I gonna get it back? (laughs) Oh my God! No! – No. – Oh no, this is the
phone my grandmother has. – I do like the look. But like functionally what am
I supposed to do with this? – Okay, am I supposed
to use this for a week? Oh no! (laughs) – Oh, it has a camera! – This is where I say, “I
love you guys, wish me luck, and hopefully I survive.” You can have it, I can’t
look at it anymore. – One last selfie before I go. – It’s the first official day. I’m taking this challenge very seriously. – Someone over here
doesn’t know how to turn on her own phone
– I don’t know – [Rafa] How to turn my phone on (laughs) – Look at the era we live in, these privileged Millennials these days. – You know the home screen
that we have on our iPhones? This doesn’t have that so
I don’t know what to press. – I am currently in the bathroom. I have to go old school. – I have to go to Staples but
I don’t know where Staples is so I had to print out
Google Maps. (laughs) – Okay, first comes first, learning how to fold a freaking map. Help me! So I added my parents as
contacts for the first time today and it was struggle texting them. Instead of hitting the space
bar which I was trying to find, I hit send. It literally says this – I would go back to flip
phones, to be honest. I feel like life was just a simpler time We appreciated more
when we had flip phones. – [Liz] Yeah, that’s pretty good. Okay! – I’d put that on my Tinder profile. – I actually had to ask my coworkers what they did over this
past weekend and likewise, they had no visibility into
what my weekend looked like, so now I’m super mysterious. – So the alarm on this stupid
flip phone did not go off. It’s now 9:30 and I’m supposed
to be at work at 9:30 so… (subway chatter) – I haven’t charged all week, by the way, and it’s still alive somehow? Now I realize how much battery
smartphones actually drain. As long as I have something
to tell me the time and something to tell me when
the train comes, I am good. – Oh… I am looking at
on a flip phone right now. And it’s a horrible user experience. Yeah, I’m gonna have
to go offline for this. – I’m becoming very
irritable very quickly. It is really hindering my work because I can’t get my
emails, get my Slack messages. – I miss emojis. This is my life now. – So we’re just gonna wander
around the streets of New York while it’s raining. Can I just look at your GPS? Am I allowed to do that? – Over the past few days I’ve
been a lot more productive than I’ve been in a very long time because I’m not texting here and checking in with apps there. – Today is Fri-yay, or the last day that I’m
doing this stupid challenge. Menu? – I am vlogging from Hawaii today. After a week of no iPhone I feel like I’m getting
back from a little mini vaca so I thought this was appropriate. – Learned a trick with my phone, watch! – At this point I’ve
gotten pretty frickin’ good at living life without an iPhone. I’ve even figured out some hacks with my flip phone. – I’m going to treat
myself to a nice dinner, and I think I might go
tech free for dinner. Might just leave everything
including the stupid flip phone. – You would think it’s really dramatic but it’s classical addiction, where you think you can’t
live without something and then you’re like “I’m
fine, the world is fine, they don’t need my InstaStories
and I don’t need theirs.” – The main thing that I noticed was I was just keeping my head up
more and I was looking around and noticing things I
hadn’t noticed before. I read parts of a couple different books. – But it was just mainly
giving up social media that was kind of a struggle, especially because I did go out a lot. Oh my God, that’s actually really cool. – Right? – [Rafa] Thank you Jade, I love you! Also I had to carry around a
map of Manhattan in my purse. – If anything this has made
me more reliant on my iPhone because I felt like a
part of me was missing. I wasn’t so easily accessible
and people couldn’t reach me. – I was just a lot more present
in everything that I did. And I’ve never been so focused. – Sometimes you’ve just
gotta live in the moment. It’s better you liking your own life than posting on social media and having other people envy yours. – I just feel like I’m in a
better mental, spiritual place. – My last words to this flip phone are (phone click) – I’m ready to be reunited with my iPhone. – My baby! – Feels good to have
this back in my hands. It feels good and I feel
like a complete person again. I’m gonna go take a bunch of selfies. (techno music)

Little known about this phone…..John said it was made in 2006 (and for some craziest reason It actually still works),The phone model is LG441G,and guess where John got this cell? A auction at somewhere in Jay/Grove. This flip phone is ok but here's a problem,it has no internet,it doesn't have a WIFI,it did not have a flash thing (that's because the phone doesn't have a white thing on its back of its display),and I can't purchase a game on the phone because it requires a internet connection. But overall,this flip phone is fine,OK,and all.
