But more often than not, that phone remains on a kitchen shelf at home.
A few days ago I got an annual (the whole of 2018) overview of my mobile/cell phone use.
I'm retired and nowadays I spend most of my time at home, where we have a landline phone.Phone Company [XYZ] wrote:Here’s a look back at your usage from the previous year. By keeping tabs on how much you’re using, we can work together
to make sure you’re always getting the service that’s right for your needs.
MINUTES THIS YEAR
[XYZ] customers used more than 946 million minutes in 2018. That’s enough to spend three minutes talking to every single person in the United States!
What important people did you use most of your 6 minutes catching up with?
TEXTS THIS YEAR
Last year, our customers sent 363 million texts. With an average text being about 7 words, they would have filled around 25,000 novels.
DATA THIS YEAR
In 2018, our average customer used enough data to send more than 5,000 emails or make 1,500 Facebook posts.
Here’s what you paid on average for your service each month during the past year.
Our low monthly rates are just one of the many reasons [XYZ] has the most loyal customers in wireless!
In my working years I drove about 60,000 miles a year, nowadays it's less than 4,000 miles!
Question for you: which Phone Company am I with?
And is there perhaps a cheaper solution?
