Well, it's time to start thinking about a new mobile phone. Yes, even the dreaded "smart" phone.
So here are some findings and a couple of Qs from yesterday's bit of homework.
1. A Samsung Galaxy S3 uses the 3G network and costs about $500 outright
2. The SG S4 uses the 4G network and costs a slab more.
3. A clone of a SG S3 costs $160 outright. I think THIS IS THE ONE.
Q1: What exactly is the difference between the 3G and 4G networks. I suspect my older Nokia 6300 does NOT use even the 3G network?
Q2: Does anyone have any experience of the clone I have mentioned - or any other similar one?
Q3. Optus has a $36/month plan that (from memory) allows unlimited calls and 4GB data/month. Is that OK?
