New Delhi: In the recent reports received from the university students across the country, frustrated from ‘Good Morning’ Whatsapp messages from relatives and family members, youngsters have finally decided to quit smartphones and switch to Nokia 1100.

The trend is reversing
I’ll be back!

Speaking to Faking News reporter, Sandeep Sharma, an engineering student from Delhi, said, “Each morning I receive around 100 Good Morning messages. In fact the notification sound of the message itself wakes me up. And it’s the same message that keeps circulating on Watsapp. I am at my wits end about what is to be done. I thought un-installing Watsapp may help. But it doesn’t solve my problem completely. Now I am thinking of getting rid of my smartphone.”

Sandeep’s  thoughts were echoed by many, who thought switching back to their old Nokia phones is the only solution.

Sources say that this sentiment has led to significant dip in sale of smartphones. All smart phone companies have strategized to send a request letter to Whatsapp users to stop the urge of Good Morning and Have a good day messages.

Good Morning messages hogging precious phone memory has also become a huge headache for many. Some are falling back on technology to deal with this problem through a ‘saving memory’ initiative.

“A warning message will flash every morning to alert the whatsapp users as a part of SAVE MEMORY SPACE campaign. Warning message appears twice for users above 40 years of age,” said a techie.

There were also reports that a student from Nagpur is yet to recover from shock as she could not take a selfie in the washroom because of lack of space in the mobile.

Mobile companies too are taking proactive steps to deal with memory problems. Vice President of a leading mobile company was quoted saying, “Health tips, Vastu directions, Silly jokes and emotional messages will be taken care in the next move. As an immediate measure, automated app will automatically delete pictures from the gallery. App detects images that has bunch of flowers, sunrise, Kabir ke dohe.”

Meanwhile, Nokia has reportedly taken cognizance of the reversing trend and reopened its manufacturing facility in Chennai.
