Vic and Marisa’s comment: “Those cell phones will go to the elderly and children”

During the episode of Vic and Marissathe two deejays comment on the story, reminding listeners that they may have to change their mobile phones:

Whatsapp decides every year to close its service for some smartphones. In the list of mobile phones there are big names, such as the Samsung Galaxy S3″.

Marisaat which point, he added a personal comment:

I have it as a backup phone, now you backup it in that place. Usually they are refurbished phones and resold to the elderly and children. The former are satisfied, then maybe the phone doesn’t work and they are blamed. The latter instead use it to play. So now we are all there to check which mobile will no longer fit.
