Do you have a cellphone? I feel really out of the loop never really having had one. It's all so confusing.

I got one that is held together with duct tape. It is fairly modern though. But piece of shit.

Yes. It costs me 70 dollars a month. I use it to check the time when I'm out.

Yeah. I use it for internet and music. And whenever people ask for my phone number, I can actually give them one, instead of stuttering and desperately trying to change the topic.

A circa 2006 walmart tier phone. The grandiose features you people have described are completely unnecessary and serve only to inflate maintenance costs.

Modern people are strange. I recently talked to somebody who was really proud of their cell phone that was capable of downloading "200MB".
I asked her if she meant 200MBit, which is still quite a lot, but they insisted that it was 200MB.
I wondered what I had missed, that even cell phones were now capable of 1GBit/s, but they corrected me. It was 200MB per month.
Apparently that was enough for excessive internet use including youtube and everything.
I was flabbergasted.

I have a iphone 4s and when people see it they think, "Wow, that guy must be really cool."

But seriously, there's so much you can do with smartphones nowadays, even play VNs. I found out how handy they can be this year when I took a trip across state to see a dying relative. I don't have a laptop so I ended up using my phone for everything and it made my time there a lot less boring.

Way to interpret posts literally and as centric as possible.

Selecting reasonable clothing is not difficult. Chances are if it's uncomfortable it's also grossly inappropriate. Entrenching yourself within this strange view that if you don't look like a literal asperger you've become some flamboyant queer is an unfortunate perspective many young autistic adults refuse to cede.

Speaking of cellphones, I keep getting a call from a number I don't know. Same area code too.

It called me 4 times yesterday and on the 4th call I picked up and said hello but nobody answered. I just got a call from the number again a few minutes ago but I didn't answer it. I've gotten random calls before from people who have the wrong number before, but never someone who's called this many times. Should I be worried?

Sony Ericsson J120i, bought for ~30 euros in 2008. First and only phone I've ever bought. No fancy smartphone features, no internet, no customizable ringtones, no camera.

I use it mainly to check the time (I dislike having a watch around my wrist) and as an alarm clock (one of three) to wake me up in the morning. I also sometimes use it to contact people I can't contact in any other way or if I need to contact them ASAP. I generally use text messages for this, as I hate phone conversations. I also use my phone to sometimes take some quick notes, using the text message 'save in drafts' feature to write some stuff down to look at later.

I use prepaid as I don't spend enough money to warrant a subscription (I generally spend 20-30 euros a year on texts and phone calls). It's the only phone I have, no landline phone or anything like that (I live on my own). For entertainment on the road, I have my laptop which is also my main PC.

I've been considering a smartphone, but data limits are ridiculously restrictive here (though the situation is changing; apparently there's now a provider that has 40 KB/s unlimited prepaid internet for 50 cents a day) and the cheapest smartphones feel too expensive to be worth it (even on DealExtreme you can't get anything significantly below $100).

>> No.9338314

I thought it was some telemarketing thing too, but they usually answer right away. I got the calls at 10:51am, 1:29pm, 3:26pm, and at 7:09pm. I answered the last one and didn't get a reply.

They just called again 30minutes ago but I didn't answer. If I get another call I'll make sure to answer this time.

I did google the number but nothing came up.

In languages like C++ it should be the same as creating programs for other platforms. Not entirely sure how it works, though, as I'm not much of a C++ guy.

You can also use something like Unity (which uses C#), which conveniently automatically ports the game to the platform of your choice.

I've never had a phone. My dad had offered to buy me one on several occasions in the past, and I would refuse it each time. It actually became a running joke around the house since I'm the only one without it(even my younger siblings have their own).

It just feels like too much a hassle when I've got other stuff to do like shitpost on /jp/.

No seriously, I do feel like it is a hassle, because people are eventually gonna fill up your contacts list, and once they start calling you, you have to and actually answer and engage in a conversation. Like fuck that.

Among the people I have met in my lifetime, around 6 girls have already asked me for my number. I always had to say that 'it broke' and that 'I still need to get a new one'. I then avoid them from there onwards.
