I bought a new phone from Little India yesterday. It feels good to have a new phone that battery lasts for a day and efficient sound control! I met a Malaysian man before who had really old phone. His phone cuts the call all the time. He has to take the battery out and SIM card out and put all back in to continue the call. He did this process very fast, without looking the phone. It's amazing how long he kept his patience with his old phone.
14 years ago, the mobile phone was still expensive. I bought one NOKIA from second hand shop. It was sliding type. You slide the part of body to have the number bottoms. The curved shape of phone was great for talking. It properly connects ear and mouth like the classic telephone.
That time, there was no messaging. but there was messaging service and you can leave maybe up to 5 messages. It was sweet service because it allowed me to contact the messaging center anytime to hear the favourite message again and again.
Oh I remember that days in Ho Chi Minh city, 98-99. I wish I could go back there.
