I get to stay in constant touch with everyone in my family and also exchange calls, pictures and news through text with my friends around the World.
My two young kids have so gotten used to it that they now ask why they can’t see me if I place a regular pstn call. If they are not naughty (which they sometimes can be, especially when it comes to going to bed), I reward them by letting them send a text with a video, picture or a Tango Surprise to anyone of their choice (often their grandparents) and ask them for a game of Snow Fight or Reversi.
