I’m in Toronto for work, and with wifi at our office and the hotel, didn’t have much of a reason to get a data plan.
So, I spent Sunday exploring the city with my data turned off, and it was really nice:
- Unable to get a quick dopamine Facebook or email, I talked with tourists on the bus, read longform articles on my phone.
- When I had to find something, I needed to play a game of “find the Tim Horton’s” for wifi, or just ask a kind stranger for help.
- My text messaging worked, but at $0.50 per, I thought long and hard about what I wanted to say to people.
