What I offered is a better solution to your post " Phone as a home computer" than you did.

That is all. Not transferring (LOL) anything.

You started the thread. You offer solutions to nobody. Nobody has ever heard of Scrcpy, nobody needs it and nobody has a feature phone. Free is beside the point. Almost EVERYTHING is free with smartphones. I have no idea where you go the idea that they are not.

Is that clear enough?

You offered a solution THAT REQUIRES MONEY. And yes Scrcpy does work. DuckDuckGo is your friend, others have successfully used it. I just dont personally have experience using it so cant say how easy it is to adjust phone on computer screen. Well should say I installed it and it ran but my phone is Android 4.4 and it needs Android 5.0 or newer, think I pointed that out.



Again several people have posted wanting a FEATURE PHONE. People like you assume everybody has your needs and desires and tell them they are stupid to not mimic you and your needs. IF YOU NEED A SMART PHONE, THEN BUY ONE. DONT TELL ME OR ANYBODY ELSE THATS ONLY SOLUTION. Spending money is not necessarily the best solution for everybody. I take it you were a SALESMAN or something. And you dont profit if people dont buy your sales pitch.

You must be a city lad, not everybody in rural areas has a choice of cell company. Though most could find an MVNO if they tried that used the same network, but oddly they dont.


Hotspot requires an unlocked phone. MORE MONEY. If you havent learned the life lesson that their aint no FREE LUNCH, well better hurry up. No company gives ANYTHING for FREE out of the goodness of their heart, there is always a price. "free" phone, tablet, or hotspot gizmo, just means higher bill or you are locked into a contract or whatever. ITS A MARKETING GIMMICK and not one for your benefit. Boy you spend others money pretty easily. Again if you believe the marketing beautiful sunshine, more power to you.



Some of us rather spend bit time than money. Spending time usually means we learn something. Spending money only teaches us how to whip out the plastic to solve every problem. If thats what YOU want, more power to you. Spend YOUR money and smile, smile, smile. Dont tell me or anybody else we have to spend OUR money.

I have a smartphone and so do 99% of cell phone users.

Lemmings follow each other off the cliff. Are you a lemming? I'm not. I buy what I need and no more than I. need. I spend the least amount money on the least amount technology that meets my needs. You apparently feel need to keep up with the Jones next door??? What other people choose to buy IS NOT MY CONCERN. Again if you find my post useless to your needs, stop reading it and go BUY something so you feel better.





https://review42.com/smartphone-statistics/
There are 5.11 billion unique mobile users worldwide in 2019, and 2.71 billion of them use smartphones.



Uh doesnt sound like 99% to me or did nearly half switch to smart phone in past year?

So are you going to give everybody that doesnt take your unasked for and unwanted advice a $1. I will be waiting.

I got an idea. DON"T give us what we did NOT ask for. We don't need "solutions" to problems that nobody has.

ONLY YOU HAVE THEM.

Then, to top it off, you get your panties in a bunch if someone else makes suggestions.

Aggregating all of your computing onto just your phone? One basket, all your eggs.

I'm not giving you any advice. I am giving you a hard time because you are recommending something to...others... that you have no experience with at all.
