    And to think that people access their bank accounts and everything else from a mobile phone.

    This is why on my phone I don't use the net.

    I only use it for making calls and watching videos that I put onto my microSD card.

    My phone is attached to a number of my personal accounts. I feel exposed if I were to use it just to browse random websites.
