Thinking about an Upgrade?

Caid has had his Iphone 4S for almost 3 years now. We were told that Sprint Iphones could not be unlocked or used Internationally, and if we wanted to sell it back, it was worth $20. Then a friend told us that a law had recently passed that after two years, phone companies were obligated to unlock your phone (if you ask) since you had essentially (over) paid for the phone. We called up Sprint once more and were transferred to their international department, since we let them know we were moving to Brazil. In 20 minutes the phone was unlocked and has been an amazing asset to our ministry here in Brazil (and my first smartphone).

Having a camera/recorder has enabled us to make vlogs (video blogs) and updates quickly on Facebook and Youtube. Having Whatsapp has enabled us to be part of ministry groups, knowing who is sick, who to pray for, and what ministry opportunities come up last minute (it is also much cheaper than texting in Brazil, and very widely used!). We now have Skype and Facetime to talk to family abroad, and have never been so connected.

That said, if you have a nice smartphone (Iphone, Samsung, or LG work in Brazil), but are thinking of upgrading--here is a great idea: unlock your old phone and give it (and a sturdy case please--life is tough on phones here!) to Steve Turner to bring to Brazil for one of the pastors/ministry workers. Getting a decent phone with a camera and communication apps into the hands of these dedicated workers can enable them to send updates and document their work much easier. Thank you technology!
