    Reminds me of how my grandmother went to buy a smartphone so she could use WhatsApp to communicate with us because we're in different countries. The staff there helped her for free, but if she was in Japan it would have probably cost her three times more than the smartphone itself...

    This can be solved by having something called friends or relatives.

    Looks like someone grew up in a normal household. Congratulations.

    Note that I said friends or relatives. If you make it to the point where you have a smartphone, yet have no friends or relatives, that's not just "abnormal", that's worrying.
