Phone messages & texting (yes, I avoid mobile phones & live in blissful, undisturbed ignorance!)
The message Mr C sent on his phone said 2/2 - does that mean there's also a 1/2??

Lol - I've been looking at it & assuming I'm missing something bleeding obvious.
 Searches about the phone message have brought up the stuff about the caps & the comma; and the MMS instead of SMS & on the one with caps it says 'iMessage'  - but nothing about the 2/2...

Stone age phone, too.  Page 2 is probably just  "ely.", knowing how few characters those teeny tiny screens allow. 😉

Lol at the idea of that phone being from the stone age!  I have just unearthed mine & found the charger, 'cos I'm going to have to try it out in the name of research.
{my phone is 11 years old & has had a total of £30 in credit - mostly used phoning myself by accident.  It gets taken out once a year for my annual go-and-get-drunk-in-a-cabin-in-the-woods-with-some-strange-people-I-met-on-the-internet weekend.  Don't ask}

Texting that message, it stays on page 1 of 1.  Adding another hundred or so characters, it's still on page 1 of 1.  It wouldn't become 1/2 unless there was a 2nd part (and I'll probably get RSI before that happens!)

If there was an image - then that message, would that make it 2 'pages'.  Images are way beyond the scope of my phone...

That idea's already been mentioned on this very forum!  No clue how I managed not to find it...

My phone is even more simplistic than that. Cheapest little phone I could buy, just so people can phone or text me if they have to. I refuse to become one of the smartphone zombies.

You must be a rare breed. I think we need to take you to the lab to study you.

Mrs Therapy isn't a zombie, either.  At least, I don't think so...

Unfortunately I have to admit I am smartphone zombie... To be honest I don't use my laptop very much since I have the smartphone. Even now I'm typing from my phone and I like it, I don't have to seat in one place;)

And back to the topic, I think what Mr C sends is MMS(this is even shown) and the 1/2 part could be...some pic maybe? Which we didn't see yet obviously.
