    Same thing when pagers were first out. Only doctors needed them. Now everyone thinks they're a star or mega-important. People just need to get over themselves!

    Since I don’t have a computer my phone is my internet connection. I use it for everything. Don’t know if I’m addicted or just busy :D

    It’s an iPhone 7 Plus. It’s a good size. I have a tablet too. I haven’t wanted to add another monthly bill by getting wi-fi. The computer is on my wish list. It’s just not made it to the top of the priority list yet.

    If you want to use the tablet's larger screen size, in the iPhone's Settings you can activate a Personal Hotspot. Then wi-fi your tablet into that iPhone Hotspot. The tablet will be using the same internet connecivity the phone is using.

    Yep I do that already. But I don’t think it would run a computer. I prefer typing on my iPhone and I use the tablet for movies and podcasts that require a 2nd device.

    Yep, you certainly get a better movie experience on the tablet.

    Don't discount the idea of doing the same thing for our computer if you need to do so even in just a pinch. I travel for work and when I need to I connect to internet for my laptop the same way...with my iPhone hotspot.

    You're welcome of course Lynne. Good luck and good spending.

    I feel like I should be in marketing or advertising. I just prompted a purchase with just a few hundred keystrokes.

    So by the way, you can run a private jet on jet fuel. Now that you know that little bit of info too Lynne, will you go out and buy a private jet please. I have places I need you to take me too. :p
