Any idea why phone shops should remail open as not necessary ?

You beat me to it.

Were they allowed to open during the first lock-down, I can't remember?

A functioning phone is necessary to trace and to contact

the people in case of infection, so it makes sense to keep the phone shops open

 

My concern is they will probably close the beach again

a very bad news as i am used to go here everyday

I am not a frequent user of the phone shops too

of thai customers i guess there is some demand

I had to change my 5 year old phone just the other day as it was an Android 6 version. A number of Apps now need a newer version, especially banking apps. Although, having said that, I ordered via Lazada so had no need to visit a phone shop.

To buy new phones and download the "cha-cha app" or how this thing is called.

Who wants to guess what's about to be banned next 😭

I'll guess - alcohol sales. Stock up if you can't live without it.

Part of the plan is to avoid prople from Bangkok coming to Pattaya for party

be prepared for another control soon at the city enters,with only the residents allowed 

to go in, since yesterday they have already closed some of the U turns on Sukkumvith road

the check point will be probably coming back soon

Maybe all those farang idiots I see regularly in Big C, walking around without a mask over their faces, will start to conform.   Sticking it under your chin doesn't count.

Yes, I believe they were. Maybe for people to pay their bills.

Son: Dad, dad, there's a man at the door with a bill.

Dad: No son, it's a duck with a hat on.

Might be more important for those employing foreign workers to bring them in legally.
