Meh. It's ridiculous when someone else beats you to writing about your own new phone.
5 people tested every single extra canggih function but not the most basic function of A phone. And guess what? OF course it was the most basic function which was screwed.
The joke's on me though. It was to be MY new phone.
So after 2 trips back to the shop, I got that worthless piece of crap exchanged for a new one. Now it works splendidly!
Please let me share my happiness with all of you!
Say hello to my spanking shiny new Nokia 3250!
Which replaces my old and abused 3 year old Nokia Iterforgotthemodelnumberbecausetheykeepcomingoutwithnewoneseveryminute.
It took me about a whole year and a crazy amount of peer pressure to finally settle with that one.
Friends were like "Get a handphone lah wei! GET IT! WE WANT TO CALL YOU LAH! SO HARD TO CONTACT YOU!"
I was like "Handphone? for what? waste money only lah. U want to call me call me at work or at home lah. If I'm out also I won't be free to layan you wat!"
Undeterred, these jokers even pooled a small sum of money on my birthday as a starter fund to get me to buy a new handphone. How nice.
Now that I have a handphone I'm like "how the hell did I never realised that I could've never lived without it".
Leave handphone at home one day only also feel like.. like... drug addicit without his regular fix. *anxiousbitefingernails*
We are slaves to the gadgets we own.
I've grown attached to my old handphone. They don't make it that tiny and light anymore. Granted it only had the most basic functions - Calls, smses, gprs, games, radio. Monocolour display. Monotonic ringtones. But that's really ALL I NEED. And man, the keypad was damn sweet for SMSing.
I am a self-confessed smsoholic. I would spam you SMS upon SMS so quickly your inbox overflows with my smses because you barely have enough time to reply to ANY of them until you throw your hands up in defeat and decide to CALL me instead.
"Hello. A one minute phone call can settle the job of 274 SMSes you psycho!".
Hah. Whatever. Wimps. Eat the cloud of dusts my fingers leave as I SMS you my reply.
I don't even switch on automatic editor (T9?). It's a bloody annoyance to me. Every now and then it "suggests a spelling" while in the middle of typing out a word which TOTALLY wrecks my flow man. SO FUCK THAT.
And was the handphone damn hardy too. I must've like dropped it about a gazillion times. Still worked!
But for about a past few months. The poor fella has showing signs of strains from my rough handling. It would switch off on its own on a full charged battery. Sometimes it would not receive smes. It would hang. It would die on me after a 5 minute phone conversation even when it is fully charged. Little annoying things like that.
I've been complaining about getting a new one for ages. Once again, friends had to push and hardsell me on the spot to get a new one. Thanks, bitches.
Hi I'm FA. I have a problem with spending a lot of money on myself. It makes me feel guilty.
The rest is history.
I like though. It's quite ON. Though the new baby has about a billion superduperterror functions I will hardly use, there are two which I will, bet your bottom dollar on it, TOTALLY ABUSE IT UNTIL IT CRIES AND BEGS ME TO STOP.
a) The pretty nifty 2MP camera function ...... AND.
b) and the Mp3 function with about 512 (FREE!) extra memory. Expendable to 1GB.
GPRS and all those supercanggih internet bullshit crap also got. But I have streamyx for that so I will never touch that it.
They really should start TAILOR MAKING HANDPHONES for people, really. I'm quite confident that there's a market for that. There are a lot of all this supercanggih frills that users will hardly ever use anyway, so why bother having it installed in the phone?
The keypads aren't as sensitive as my old handphone's. It will take me some getting use to I suppose.
Meanwhile, WHEEEEE! NEW EXPENSIVE TOY!
And HAH. My handphone is like way cooler than YOUR handphone.
.... unless it's one of those superterror Sony Ericson handphones with a built-in cameraflash..... but whatever okay talk to my phone's super pwning MP3 function.
Long live Nokia!
