I’m getting tired of social media and I feel like having Nokia brick would help that. Would it even be normal at uni to have a nokia brick. Having the urge to just isolate myself and smash my iPhone

Yes.
I am the very happy owner of five nokia 3410s.
I've never had a smartphone or wanted one.

Yes, of course you could.
You can still call people if you ever need anything, and I doubt anyone has time or enough effort to make fun of you.

What about emails? The email apps on those kinda phones don’t work or are so slow and you can’t even respond. Cause I don’t have a laptop

Do you have a tablet?
I only check emails with computers and don't use public wifi.
I buy refurbished & used laptops from ebay or cex.

You use a Nokia 3410 as your daily phone?

You could just not download social media apps... I use my phone for google maps (I'm useless with directions and use it a lot when I need to go to new places), and we also used what's app groups a lot at uni so not having a smart phone will definitely put you at a disadvantage. I'm sure you could get by without one if you chose though.

Why don’t you de-activate your accounts and delete the social media apps?

A lot of whatsapp groups at uni
Keep the phone, uninstall the social media

Nope. Does that mean you don’t respond to emails early. Cause with my phone I can email back fast. When I go through uni application I guess I just have to use the library

I’ve deleted all apps except TSR but I am soooo glued to my phone. And I want to reduce my usage.

Yeah, of course. You can still call and text, and that's all you really need a phone to do.

Then go for it.
I know people who use Nokia brick and manage to live life decently
I wish I could go back to my brick phone but am addicted to the net and dependant on it sometimes.

Ngl that’s pretty cool :lol: you definitely can. But it will be hard not having Google Maps and that. At least for me it would as I rely on it to know when the next bus is and navigating when I’m exploring a city. E-tickets for trains and whatnot.

omg and you can play that snakes game on it 🤣🤣🤣 please let us know how it goes if you go through with it

I have an 11-year-old iPhone which can last for at least 24 hours without needing to be charged...

That’s what I’m a bit hesitant of as google maps helps a lot. But tbh I’m depressed as **** and won’t be leaving my house to go anywhere that isn’t local so I’ll be fine.

omggg I just clocked, the snakes game!!!! now I really really want it. Hahaha sure
