If i'm talking about completed actions at an unspecified time in the past, should i automatically use the persent perfect ? Or only if it's describing the present result of completed action ?

Second question : is it possible to use past simple with an unspecified time period ?

    We cannot answer the question without a sufficient context. So please edit your question to add it. Btw, don't forget to capitalize the pronoun "I". – user178049 Apr 27 '17 at 5:58

    In English it mostly depends on what you've got to say and your personal author's view. Context is required. – SovereignSun Apr 27 '17 at 7:07
