The stakes are high on this one.
Frontier Communications, an Internet and phone service provider based in Utah, is calling “all smartphone addicts, social media experts, and tech geeks,” for their “1-Week Flip Phone Challenge”.
If you’re the person we choose, you’ll be responsible for using a flip phone in place of your smartphone for seven full days (that’s 168 hours!), and we want you to log your experience. We’ll have you track (don’t worry, your info stays safe with us!) how long it takes you to do basic tasks such as texting and checking email, how many times you wish you could Google something, how many hours you slept, how your productivity changed (or didn’t!), and even if you were late to appointments (after all, how does anyone get around without Google Maps?). Was your experience #TheWorstThingEver? Did you find new freedom? Either way, we want to hear about it.
Of course, you won’t have to go in blind for a week. Frontier Communications will give a survival kit to the lucky person. The survival kit consists of a physical map of the person’s city, a pocket phonebook and a notepad, and some audio CDs “to soothe [their] Spotify withdrawals.”
The closing date for entries will be on July 1st, 2019 at 5pm MST.
Will you be the lucky person? Would you survive this challenge?
