Why do we never use our smartphones to make a call? Will calling disappear from our habits?

There are many different ways to achieve the same as we previously called for.If you want to make an appointment, you can either send a message or an email. You can look more easily in each other’s calendar or with a date picker to get a date out.

If you want to keep a conversation, you can also hold a conversation by sending messages, that has the same ‘ immediate ‘ effect but you give the other the moment to send something back when it comes out.

If you want to order a meal or make a reservation at a restaurant it can be much better with an app or site.

Moreover, we are increasingly busy and we have less time to call, it rarely gets really good.

This together makes us increasingly less bubbles.

However, every week I call my little brother, there is something to direct each other just to hear each other.So I certainly do not expect it to disappear. It should only compete more with all other forms of communication.

I think this claim is not quite true. I myself have a subscription with a few hundred call minutes per month and I use a large part of it.It is true that I call less by the presence of Whatsapp and similar apps, but I still call a lot.

In fact, I hardly call via the Internet, because I still have minutes and the quality is much better.

I don’t think old-fashioned bubbles disappear.However, calling through the landline will probably disappear, as in the UK. [1

I hope I have answered your question with C茅line D茅camps (Quora user).

People call less often because “it may be uncomfortable”, and it costs more money if you don’t have an subscription.There is also such a thing as call fear.

In advance: the use of the word never-and other absoluts as ‘ everyone ‘, ‘ always ‘, ‘ everything ‘, ‘ nothing ‘, ‘ nobody ‘ et cetera, is not recommended when asking a question.

I still use my personal regularly to call.Why did I do that thing differently. But, I understand what you want to say, and the less use of the call function is I think due to two things.

  1. More efficient use of other means, such as, e-mail, messaging, direct input, real-time stock systems, online availability of calendars etc.
  2. The enormous irritation ability of telephone exchanges and waiting times.

Depending on the age category we are in, we will still call our smartphone.But when I reflect myself I notice the following.
We used to have the landline phone.Of course, it was easy to use because it was the only means of communication for the distant distance when a radio is being taken away. It was not answered regularly, because people did not hold the guard next to the phone.
But then came the Mobile phones.And with that you got to be very reachable. And that’s just the problem now. The call is expected to call back. Sometimes it doesn’t come out well. The excuse of “I was not at home” you can no longer use. It is simply less accepted that mobile communication is not answered immediately. So that SMS was a relief. You leave the recipient the choice when he reads it. And that has grown to other forms of communication. And Facebook is a bad one of them. Because now we reach a large group. And we’d like to post something. And then it is in suspense waiting who gives an answer or a like. We go for that little rush in the reward center in the brain and search for more, which makes us even more nonsense to post. A rush that one doesn’t have when just calling. That immediate interaction, voice intonation that makes emoys redundant, are less valued. And as Ben Weersink just posited, call anxiety also plays with it. In my opinion, bubbles will never disappear, however, calling habits do.

The technique changes our habits.

There was also a time when we were making little phone calls because it was expensive, and because not everyone had a device in the house.I remember that sometimes it was called, where people from the street asked if they could possibly call in connection with an emergency.

In the eighties and nineties it became more and more normal that everyone was reachable by phone.The cordless phone made its appearance on a large scale, and one could call from any place in the house. However, the phone belonged to an address, not to a person.

In the years 90 the mobile phone was also introduced.At first, this phone was also only to call. But the SMS function changed our behavior though. You no longer have to make a call per se, to pass on your message. That’s the time of the high SMS cost. Golden times for phone operators.

The simple mobile phone got more and more features.Calendar, games and ultimately internet connectivity.
With the advent of Wifi in every home and office and flat-rate internet communication became very cheap and it was possible to do what we used to do with different devices now on one device.
The smartphone is computer and game console and social device in a small pocket pack.Whatsapp, SMS, messaging and email have taken over much of the functionalitite of the old phone call. In the past, every business call also had a lot of overhead. You had to be polite, ask how the weather was, before you could come to the matter. A text message is usually to the point and sent quickly. We can look up things we should have asked differently. It’s especially not that we call less, we just do more with our phone. It is actually a social device with a verbal call function. We no longer carry our phone calls from a chair, but already running, cycling, car driving and on the train. We just do many more other things with the phone than talking only.

Why don’t you understand what “never” means?

Actually, I use my smartphone surprisingly much to call.It’s my funniest act on a day I can veribe with my smartphone. Nice old school call. Especially if you just want to experience the energy of the other instead of that dry juices.

Of course, we still use smartphones to call via Messenger, WA or Skype or other programs
