The kosher phone? No internet. I have no issue with using internet, evidently. And my BB has internet

A friend of mine wanted to suggest to the קרן לישראל חדשה to give out iPhones to yeshiva bachurim....

Like!

(Just kidding. I'm not THAT crazy.)

But why have both is the treif one has internet. Doesnt it defeat the purpose of the kosher one?

No, it doesn't. Because as I pointed out, the true purpose of a kosher phone (for many people) is just to get cheaper phone service. So that purpose is accomplished beautifully, while the secondary phone can be used for text/Internet.

I was referring to the stated reason.

Well, those who get it for the stated reason, don't get a secondary phone.

Chas V'Shalom!  :o :o

My Rav told me to get a Kosher phone - to switch from my old one, so that is why I did it. It actually was more expensive. I had an Orange Shabbat plan, ZERO monthly fee, 60 minutes to Orange FREE each month. I got a kosher cellcom, 10 shek monthly fee, no free minutes. Instead of guessing why ppl have kosher phones, you can ask them and maybe when they are scratching their head, it is because it is itchy, not because they have a non-kosher bluetooth headpiece.
siyag lachachma :-)

In your particular case, you happened to have the bad luck that your former plan was a very good one. Most people did not start out on such a good plan - for them, switching to kosher is an upgrade in terms of pricing.
Instead of guessing why ppl have kosher phones, you can ask them and maybe when they are scratching their head, it is because it is itchy, not because they have a non-kosher bluetooth headpiece.

Oh, so now Bluetooth is treif too? Didn't know it could pic-to-speech inappropriate images to you...

(For the record, some newer kosher phones do have BT support.)

No, I'm talking about a bt device like the bt gloves but with internet etc.

Just because some ppl do not follow daas Torah and do whatever they want doesn't meant that everyone is like that.

@shmuellb
How do you post on DDF?
You have voice-to-text on your kosher phone that let you post here?
Cool technology!
Love me or hate me. I still love you.
