So something has been bugging me to no end and I would really like an answer or maybe support from people who feel the same.
I find that having a phone from the start is kind of annoying for when you're going for a specific lifestyle. I love technology, however my sims often do not, atleast I want them to not care which they seem to do almost everyday when they're browsing their phone. I get the idea why you'd want to give phones for every sim (even children..) but what if my sims are poor? What if they hate the outside world and only want to work on their garden and enjoy the simple life.
Not to mention, even if I turn my phone on "silent" for my sims they still get messages. They still look on their phone. I had a very poor sim, living on a flat piece of land with a tent. Somehow she was still rich enough for a phone? It just doesn't make sense and it's becoming more annoying now I want to have an option to play however I want to.
So please @SimGuruDrake @SimGuruGraham
or any other guru working on TS4, would you be able to make it optional. Something like in the options menu where you "buy phone online" or "have a phone for everyone" option where you can choose for yourself? I don't want all my children getting a phone, not every child wants a phone. I know they come in handy, but not everyone actually likes having one.
Hope it will be possible one day. Thank you for reading!
