Assuming you want to keep your Pattaya Line active

Not following you ... why wouldn't it be active regardless of geographic location?

If your "Pattaya only" second telephone goes into storage, or your "Pattaya only" account gets deleted off your primary phone to avoid accidents.

Mostly my thinking more toward people who like to keep some sort of air gap between life at home, and life in Pattaya. It may well be of only limited interest.

I sometimes have the same problem.

My goole translate does not seem to sync when  I select "copy" for Thai text. lately I have had to copy then exit LINE, open google Translate and paste.

 

It's actually a fairly common problem @Harry Brown I'm not sure if the issue is with the line messaging app Google translate or possibly an underpowered device. I use a Fairley High specced phone and it is rarely a problem. 

But usually the solution is just to open Google Translate and in the copy will all the Google icon to display.

So I thought I would start this thread with table of contents.

I should also point out that I am an Android user (OnePlus 5) so there may be differences for those using iPhones. 

Another thing worthy of mention. It is probably good practice when you get someone's line credentials to record them outside of the app, because if they are somehow required later, there is no way that I am aware of, to retrieve them once entered into the app.

I am by no means an expert  but have an active interest in understanding how these types of apps work, so I tend to do a fairly deep dive on them. Feel free to ask any questions and I will attempt to answer them.

 

Very helpful. Now I just need your contact list.

Possibly a thread outlining how to keep a distinction between home/family life and Monger life. To me there is definitely a need as without sophisticated knowledge it's so easy to get caught out. But there are a myriad of ways to deal with that.

I would do one myself but as you can appreciate I kept a little busy days these days!  :Chained_Desk:

I'm not a Line user. My wife, like most Thais uses Line. She signed me up and in a short time I had so much crap on my phone that I cancelled it. I suppose there are ways to clean up the mess but it was not worth the effort for me to find them. She likes me to call her because I pay for the calls. No more often then I make phone calls the cost of my calls in a month would not buy a beer.

In my opinion, the most important lesson/skill to learn when installing Line is how to turn off notifications. That is particularly essential in any Line group I'm a member of. :-)

(Actually, knowing how to turn off notifications for any smartphone application in general is a very useful skill to have.)
