Requiem for a Phone

On Saturday night I went to go watch Sin City again. Bob and Kit wanted to go see it, so I drove to The Block on my scooter. When I got home I noticed I didn’t have my cell phone. I think I either left it in the theatre or dropped it on the way home. So my Sony Ericsson z200, which was purchased in the Philippines, accompanied me through Japan, China, Taiwan, and Vietnam, was lost in the 2 miles from The Block to my apartment. So I got a new gsm card, which cost 25 bucks, from cingular to replace my old one. In Asia, you can buy a prepaid gsm card for like 3 bucks, so I’m pretty sure they’re making tons of money on this little service of theirs.

As a result, I’ve probably lost your phone number, so please email or IM me it. I’ve also had to switch phones to my backup phone, which is a crappy Sony Ericsson t237.

New Temp Phone:

I’m in the market for a new one, so any suggestions will be appreciated.

    I just got a Nokia 3230 after I got sick of my old Siemens C62’s hardware and software being buggy / idiotic. Do not get a Siemens phone, they’re all crap.

    The Nokia 3230 I got is a “smartphone” with a Symbian OS, thus software-wise it’s flawless. In terms of hardware, well, it’s a Nokia, so you can’t go wrong there. The display is beautiful (really), the 1.2M camera is a lot of fun for taking random pics, and you can even record lo-res movies, which is funky for recording funky situations (like homeless people on Moscow Square, Budapest). I paid ~$400 for an unlocked/SIM-free one here in Hungary, which is kind of decadent, but it was worth it. I highly recommend it.

    Whatever you do, don’t get a Motorola V400. They flashy adds drew me in a year and a half ago when it was the new hot thing to have. From day one the volume in the earpiece was low. After splashing it with a little water (oops) the volume in the earpiece is nearly inaudible. There are certain people I can’t even talk to while driving without having to pull over and shut the car off just so that I can hear them. Good thing it has a built in speaker phone. 🙂 Another problem I’ve had is my “3” button tends to stick, making text messaging a real chore. 🙁 I wanted some customization ability, so I dl’d all the prog’s needed to upload new ringtones, backgrounds, etc. Ever since then then phone just hasn’t been the same. You know what. . .maybe all the problems are my own fault. lol. But it’s your risk.
