Phone-less For Seven Days

I have an interesting few days ahead where I will be without my iPhone 7 while it is sent away for warranty repairs. I probably only send or receive two or three calls per day and lucky to exchange three texts in a week !!
It is only two hours since I dropped it off so the deprivation has not really had a chance to set in :-T
Maybe after a week or so of "cold turkey" I may be able to give it up forever ;) :-T

Chris, Why weren't you given a loan phone?

Cheers,
Andrew

A good question Andrew. However, they did not have one available :( The phone was supplied 22 months ago by Noel Leeming as an insurance claim, so the warranty repair is done through them.

As with many of us who can remember the time before cell phones (i agree Skiwi ,) you just need to keep yourself busier doing other stuff .Good grief Chris, head down ,arse up and get that caravan done ! Lack of pictures of work in progress /completed is noticeable . ;) ;) :TU

Busy cutting, drilling and grinding 24 alloy brackets for the four solar panels. Lithium batteries in. TV bracket mounted. I have a two week wait for the custom water tanks to arrive so should have all the other tasks completed by then. Amazing the progress made without phone call interruptions ;) A constant stream of visitors this afternoon did halt progress. :(
