Nokia 6260: My Old PhoneThe Nokia 6260 is so flexible in function and design that it adapts accordingly to your every need. Not only does it help you take charge of your life, it makes it easier and more rewarding with the multi-mode display and features. Open it to make a call, check your emails and view attachments. Twist it to capture those very special moments and send them to loved ones. Or simply fold it with the display facing up for Internet browsing or accessing applications. No matter which mode it is in, the flexible Nokia 6260 adapts perfectly to match every move you make in your life. (www.nokia.com.ph)

That was my phone before I destroyed it. Yes. At first, I’m having difficulty pressing the navi keys and cancel button. I guess that was because I’m the type of person who sweats a lot, and sometimes I don’t use my headset. So my salty juices might be penetrating the mechanism of the phone underneath the keypad. I decided to disassemble it, get a hair blower, trying to dry the keypad circuit board. I put it back together, and then it worked! I was so happy then. But after a few minutes, the twisting of the camera won’t work anymore. Oh my. So again, I take it to pieces. But this time, while trying to figure out what’s wrong, I accidentally cut off the ribbon that connects the upper and lower flip! Sigh. I’m a certified mobile phone killer.

I went to Greenhills to ask how much it will cost me to repair it. Gosh! P4,000! For me, it doesn’t make sense anymore. I decided to sell it to the technician instead. I got P4,500 from him. It’s time to buy a new one.

Nokia 3230: My New PhoneGet creative with the Nokia 3230 smartphone. Edit your raw video clips into slick, customized “muvees” complete with soundtrack, using the pre-installed software; then share your masterpieces with your friends. Create your own ringing tones, print your mobile images, play multiplayer games over a wireless Bluetooth connection, and browse HTML and xHTML Web pages. Plus, with a 32 MB MMC card and expandable memory, you’ll have lots of space to be creative. (www.nokia.com.ph)

This is my new phone, Nokia 3230 with 128mb memory card. I bought it from my bestfriend Francis. I have a clearer camera now, 1.3 megapixel compared to VGA on Nokia 6260.

Now, I’ve learned my lesson. I may be a computer technician but definitely not a mobile phone technician.

  1. So ikaw lang pumunta ng Greenhills at nagbenta at bumili ng bago? Hmm.

  2. Of course I’m with you and bes. Just wait for another post… excited ka naman kc… hehehe! 😉

    matagal ko na hinihingi sa’yo yang phone na yan… kung binigay mo ‘yan sa’kin, hindi sana mangyayari ‘to… tsk tsk tsk

  4. I would have gotten the same phone only if it were smaller.

    I’m going to get a new phone and I’m deciding on whether to get the 6260 or the 3230. Which is better? What are the pros and cons of each? help please! 🙂

  6. TP, actually they’re similar. Though they differ on the camera and the physical design. About the camera, 3230 is much better than 6260. 1.3 megapixels compared to VGA. 3230’s image file size ranges from 70-150kb. But taking pictures of yourself is much easier on 6260 since the LCD can be twisted towards you, so you can see exactly the way u look in the picture. Though 3230 has a small square mirror at the back that you can use. It has a formal looking design, and good keypad positioning. Unlike 6260, the cancel button is on the upper flip, thus, having a hard time pressing it while texting. Hope it did help you in deciding what phone to buy. 😉

  7. Bes, i’m so proud of you!

    All of your entries are magnificent! specially this one and the other one. I’m planning to recapture my blog. It’s last years story of a dead man’s arrival to the hospital. In short I have to update it. I’ll call you about this. Thanks.
