    Apple and Microsoft ruined everything for everyone.
    Things got worse then because turned out every established phone manufacturing company was too lazy and too unskilled to write a proper phone OS, and when the rest finally noticed that phones were going to become as important as they are, Apple and Google managed to spread like a cancer through society and now successfully gatekeep the market

    your phone needs to be phone and not much more besides occasional navigation and quick web browsing. Anything else should be on a dedicated devices.
    Longer session of web browsing > desktop web browser
    Music > Digital Audio Player (MP3 player)
    Photos > Camera
    etc.

    phones were good when they were mostly useless and people weren't glued to them outside of their homes. Outside of pressing 500 buttons to send texts and calling, they weren't used for much more. The only other thing you could do was play snake if u were really bored or take a picture of something, but it was really bad quality and anyone that was serious about photos back then had a proper camera. Social media not being as big as it is now was also the icing on the cake.

    Because they really were absurdly underpowered so when you got a new feature like the ability to text multiple people at once or a new ringtone it was like holy fricking shit

    Phonewalling, where you were forced to buy a phone number to "prove your not a bot", a scam that forced millions of desktop pc users to have a phone. It's either that or Cloudflare anal probing of your browser, most mostly both

      Do you seriously not talk to anyone or use internet outside of your house to understand how useful a smartphone is?

        Not him but basically yeah. I could definitely get by with only a home phone since I hardly use the thing, but there's not really any point in limiting myself.

        Not a valid reason imo.
        My parents' landline is plagued with bot calls. I don't want my mobile phone to get the same fate with "security" as a pretext.
        I'm fine with apps like Aegis, you don't actually hand out your phone number.
        But why does many 2FA systems have to be by phone number? Why not email you frickers?
