    I have a phone here on my table. Its rings 2 - 3 times a week and one of them could be for me, the other are for the madam. Maybe every third week I phone one of my daughters
    for a short message. The madam have a smartphone - its ringing all the time and she are talking all the time and thats make me…………..!
    I have my computer, I can follow Russ, Crawford, Thomas etc etc, that is good enough for me, I do not feel lonely.

    Do what I do, turn off location, turn off bluetooth, do not download apps that require location and for online shopping I will use the phones browser and not apps as it's the apps that track in more detail than the browser.
    Regards,

    If my mobile rings the person at the other end has called the wrong number.

    I never call anyone. I use Whatsapp to contact the missus when she's out and about and also to keep in touch with family back in the UK. Of course I also use my mobile for browsing PSU whenever I'm away from base.
