Setting up my new iPhone

In late 2014 my iPhone 4 quit on me and I was forced to get a new iPhone. I knew, however, that setting up the new iPhone was not going to be an easy task for me as a blind person, due to my limited technical expertise along with having to deal with some visual cues on my screen. But I will say that after having had my friend, Imran, help me, it was not as bad as I had first thought.

The experience left me with a new appreciation for technology, and in addition I will say that setting it up was much less painful than if I were setting up a new computer system. The big problem came from finding someone at my cell phone company to help out. Especially so when Imran and I had to keep explaining things to the customer service rep with regard to certain contract conditions that they had imposed upon me.

Imran spent a lot of time making sure that the apps on my original phone were re-initialized and that the new iPhone remained in sync with my iPad. At the end of the day, a very long and tedious experience. Thank goodness for Imran.

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"Each time we raise our voice at someone else we are engaging in bullying! Each time we raise our hands to slap or punch someone else we are also engaging in bullying and each time we engage in actions to either manipulate or force someone else to do what we want we are also engaging in bullying!

There is no room in this world for bullying and each day we fail to take action against bullying it is another day that we allow others to bully us and our kids. Our heroes and role models are the ones who have made us proud; those brave young men and women who gave their lives for us in past wars and those who continue to do so. They are not the ones who choose to be racists and those who believe that their bad behaviour in public is acceptable.

I write and record audio mysteries that are being used at such events as murder mystery evenings as well as at public awareness and team building events. I promote understanding, tolerance, and problem solving and my audio mysteries continue to be broadcasted around the world and you can listen to them anywhere! On the plane or train! In the car or right there in your home! On your i device or computer!

Please join my campaign against bullying (CAB) by supporting my efforts to keep on writing and recording!
If you truly care then you will certainly dare!"
