The truth is that all of us would be lost without our mobile phones. Did you notice how the mobile phones slowly and discretely crept into our lives? And they are here to stay! Just a couple of years ago they were the latest thing in technology and the privilege of the wealthy people and today. Well, just imagine spending a week without your mobile phone by your side. Impossible! Being such a big part of our lives and being something that you take with you all the times, your choice of this gadget says a lot about you. Actually, you can classify people according to their attitude towards mobile phones.
The “I Only Have It Because I Have To” Type
This is type that has a mobile phone simply because others need them to have it. These people are usually our mothers, fathers, uncles and older people. Their mobile phones usually have only the most basic functions and endless battery lives. You will never see them using an online mobile shop as they often just take the old mobiles that their kids don’t need any more after buying the latest model. They don’t text, and they don’t read texts sent to them.
The “Average Joe” Type
The “Average Joes” of mobile phone users are usually male users in their forties. They like to have reasonably new mobile phones and they tend to buy phones from time to time in order to maintain the value of their money invested in them. Good thing about them is that they are always available, they read and answer texts you send them in a timely manner and they use the phones “as they should be used”. There isn’t really some distinctive characteristic for this type of user aside from the fact that we all know that mobile phones are just replacement for their childhood toys. Boys and their toys!
“Does My Phone Match My Purse” Type
I’m not trying to be sexist here, but the truth is that this type usually includes girls of all ages. Especially teenage girls. They don’t really care about the functions and the features that their phone provides them with, besides the camera. The camera needs to be perfect! The most important thing about their mobile phones is that they are the latest fashion and that you can put all sorts of stickers and trinkets on it so that it looks cute and matches your look. These users will answer to all the texts ever sent to them and spend hours taking to their BBFs. The bad thing – if you try to call them, they will probably be already talking to somebody.
“Phone Is My Best Friend” Type
You will probably find these types glued to the windows of the local mobile shop, drooling over the latest type of mobile phone. They already know all there is to know about the phones that are not even released yet! The features, the appearance, the advantages and the weak points – by the time you buy the latest model there is – it’s already old news to these guys. Don’t bother texting them – they are online all the time – email them!
So, which one are you?
