Flip Phone Challenge is a challenge that requires participants to drop their smartphones and use a flip-flop phone in 168 hours.
How is life without a smartphone? No Internet, no camera and no Google Maps at your fingertips. If you can withstand the above things, you will have the opportunity to receive up to 1,000 USD when participating in the "Flip Phone Challenge" challenge.
Accordingly, a Utah-based phone and Internet service provider, Frontier Communications is choosing a candidate to use the flip phone – a popular device in the mid-1990s – in a week and live life without a smartphone.
“With the 30th anniversary of the first flip phone, Frontier is looking for a brave user who is willing to give up their smartphone for a week and live a life with nothing but a flip phone. ", Frontier spokesman, Javier Mendoza said in an email.
With more than 30,000 candidates, according to Mendoza, the winner will receive a 1,000 USD prize to perform testing and record the time they perform simple tasks such as texting and email checking, and whether Are they late for the appointment?
Winners are also encouraged to write down how many hours they will sleep without using a smartphone, the company said. According to a recent study by Imperial College London, the use of mobile phones at night is associated with a higher rate of sleep deprivation on weekdays.
In the Frontier's competition, the chosen person will be provided with a survival kit, a package containing alternatives to some of the smartphone's functions. They include a map instead of Google Maps, a phonebook instead of a phone book, a notebook instead of a note application. Interestingly, the winners can still listen to music, but instead of an application, they will receive some CDs with songs from the 90s.
