Yes, and I find the restrictions on social activity and accessing the internet very disturbing

Thanks, also good for us that want a phone to be a phone. I'll use the computer or camera to do the other things.

Oy1 Such a brokhe for the observant ones who don't want the tsores that go along with the sometime troubling technology..on phones today.

noted and thank you Cal! As I see it, the problem also has to do with the non religious population in Israel. As I see it, the non religious population has to help those who can not have the good access to the Internet.

Interesting. I like your comment, John. I think the idea of having a Jewish calendar on a phone is very useful, my sister tells me that the only reason that she does not use the calendar on her phone as her main calendar is because it does not have Jewish dates on it,
If they want to restrict access to internet, I respect that decision.

Thanks Cal
