    16. 19. It was a gift, but I had to get a sim card and establish a contract with a service provider, take it home, plug it in, charge it… Wait…Read the manual. Personalise it; set the language (English and predictive test) enter the ph. no.s I wanted (I’ve outsourced my memory). Send a message to all my family & friends so they know my no., set the calendar, clock, choose the background, select preferred ring-tone and volume. Reply to half the friends and relations. Set the alarm clock. Put in appointments. Phew. Look at the manual to work the camera, save the photos, learn how to send photos, and bluetooth (???) them to my computer…Read the manual online….Check with service provider online about overseas roaming to send or call from Aus to NZ on a NZ ph., ( 0011649… and also need to check for service provider coverage, remember to keep ph. with me or risk my relationship, check for missed calls for the same reason. Get conscious of costs and keep feeding it with top ups by prepay, and ensure its power supply is maintained. Learn to clear messages sent and received b4 it tells me ‘memory full’ and won’t oblige. Continue t Transfuse it by credit card. Check the bank account. I still don’t know how to use it for email or internet, play games, download music, pay for parking, check movies … it’s already old technology and I haven’t yet learnt all its functions! I’ve had pets that are less demanding. Well at least the tamagotchi and goldfish, oh and the cats. Oh… I’m the one being domesticated!
