The phone stops working

When the father bought his first touchscreen phone, he is so happy and excited and downloaded games that he wants.  Yes, that is one of his purpose of buying an android phone, we want to download games, so he can play at home.  I must say, he is bored at home and he gets bored watching tv every day.  For a change, his phone will be going to entertain him.  Indeed, he downloaded lots of games.  And he is enjoying it.  Also, he has Facebook accounts, set up by his granddaughter, and he is having fun watching photos of his friends at church and co-workers before.

However, his happiness stops for awhile because his phone stops working suddenly.  We reboot it many times hoping that the phone just hanged up but still not showing any display.  We decided to bring it to the service center to help us fix the problem of the phone.  We were told that they think the phone has a virus and needs to reformat.  Why, I do not know why, and my father does not have the idea too why it has a virus.   They will just have sent text message when the phone is fixed.  Up to this day, we have not received any text message yet and the father lost patience. Hopefully, they will send the message this week before my father will go wild.haha!

Becoming a techie father

My father is not the techie.  He is not into social media and other stuff concerning the social media.  But because of his friends who have accounts on Facebook and active in social, he is eager to know about Facebook. He is a member of a certain group and most of their pictures when they have activities is shared on Facebook.  That is why he wants to buy the android phone and make the account on Facebook.  He wanted me to make him account on Facebook, but I refused because I do not have enough patience teaching.  My father is 70 years old, and teaching him will take time.  Don’t think that I am a bad daughter, just that he is too old for that.

With the help of my niece, his granddaughter, my father has the Facebook account now using her phone.  He has friends already and saw some pictures posted on Facebook.  And last week, my father finally bought an android phone.  I accompany him buying his phone because he wants me to pick a phone for him.  I picked a budget-friendly and user-friendly phone so my father not having a hard time operating it.  So far, he is enjoying his new phone and enjoying the downloaded games.  My father is happy with his new phone.  He bothers me sometimes, but it is fine because he is learning little by little.
