    Hello y’all,

    The name is Randy-Joshua, and I’m from the Netherlands, Utrecht. I’m born in 1985 September and I’m a real gadget/phone freak. My first phone I bought was a Motorola, with a antenna that you can pull out and a plastic thingy so that you could covered the digits. I had to buy that in secret because my parents didn’t allowed me to buy a mobile phone. Exciting times haha. Also that time nobody had a mobile phone and it was absurd expensive to call other people. I never received a phone call in the first year, but boy o boy I used it daily to just glance at it and go over the menu 100 times a day. You may think why I’d even buy a phone, well it was exciting and new haha. It was the tech that makes it all so exciting, even though I didn’t used it to it’s full potential. Later on my friends and others where getting a phone as well because the old folks started to realize that it was indeed handy that they could call their kids whenever they want us to come home. SMS wasn’t even possible back then.

    So after all the Nokia (3210, 3310 and so on) hype, I gotten into a phone frenzy, I can’t even remember how many phones I burned. But then something new starting to happen the Android OS started to live, and I started looking at the HTC Dream. It was love at first sight, everything I could dream of, it had a full QWERTY keyboard a scrolling mouse thingy touchscreen an Notification Center, and a full blown screen with a lot dingies.

    And nowI’m old :-P and I have two phones, one private and one for work. One iPhone X and one Samsung galaxy S8 for work. I’m tired of always needing to charge two phones and carry them with you. So I decided after years of using primarily using iOS devices that I’m gonna switch over to a DualSim note 10. My iPad will be sold to the highest bidder and the only thing I’m gonna keep is my AirPods. Because I really love those!

    Hey that’s a little bit about me and my cringy English writing. I’m looking forward to get know some of you.

    Have a pleasant day!
