TOPIC: PIP Assessment "do you have a smart phone?"

PIP Assessment "do you have a smart phone?" 1 month 2 weeks ago #194895

My wife was asked this at her Assessment yesterday. as part of the review of her PIP award.
She has and said she uses it for calls, texts, facebook and browsing the internet. What has this got to do with her condition which is progressive, incurable, has no treatment and is progressive? We feel it was a trick question and are worried that they will reduce/remove her award. Has anyone else been asked this and what happened?

It's a regular question and is used to make assumptions about concentration, reading and incorrectly, social interaction.

Is there a list anywhere of questions like this that they might ask?

The PIP guide explains what to expect at a f2f, but I don't think we actually have a list of all the possible variations of question that could be asked.
