They still make Nokia phones?! And there are people that carry/still use them??

It's times like this I'm glad I don't have BlackBerry. Everyone in my work has one and they're always talking about BBM and shit :o

Phones are mainly for calling, receiving calls, and texting. As long as my phone is able to perform these basic tasks, why do I need to change to a high end device? I'm pretty satisfied with its camera, embedded radio, flash light, applications and music player (i.e. no need for an iPod!) It's doing well for a four years old phone, there's absolutely no reason for me to switch (yet). Spending hundreds of pounds on a BlackBerry or an iPhone right now is last on my list when I have to worry about a flatlining economy. :shrug:

At the moment the Blackberry OS is by far the worst of WP7, Android and iOS and that isn't changing anytime soon. I mean iOS 5 was just released today and that's a huge update from iOS 4 and with Windows Phone 7 Mango and Android Ice Cream Sandwich coming out soon BB are only falling behind more and more. :)

I'll get the iPhone 4S in a few weeks and then a Google Nexus Prime when that's released to have the best of both Android and iOS. :)They still make Nokia phones?! And there are people that carry/still use them??

When Nokia release their Windows 7 Phones they're going to take over the world again :inlove:

:hug: I wasn't trying to be...mean. It was a legitimate question. I haven't seen anyone w/ a Nokia in about 4-5 yrs; which is why I thought they stopped making them/people stopped carrying them. :lol:

:spit: Yeah, that'll be the same day JNCO makes their triumphant return to jeans.

Nokia are so shamlessly self-important with their social networking application, attaching itself to every status update.

Ahhh I used to say this until I got a free SE x10 Mini Pro. Its no where near close to the high end smart phones, yet after mine got stolen and I went back to a phone similar to what you described I felt dead inside. Looking up information wherever I want, checking my email in the car in case something is cancelled or I know there's an important reply incoming, never getting lost... BITCH GIVE ME BACK MY PHONE.

:hug: I wasn't trying to be...mean. It was a legitimate question. I haven't seen anyone w/ a Nokia in about 4-5 yrs; which is why I thought they stopped making them/people stopped carrying them. :lol:

I've had to switch back to an old Nokia :( Web browsing was shameful.


Anyway, buying a new phone soon... SE Xperia Arc looks good and is much cheaper than comparable phones (I'm poor) and I suppose I'd be more comfortable with it coming from the x10 mini pro. Any thoughts? My only reluctance is its not dual core... but do I need dual core? And then theres the new Arc S (also single core) which is 1.4Ghz compared to the Arcs 1Ghz but over $100 NZ more.

Ah... I haven't really used mine in the last couple of days can't say. :o :o :o


Wait that's not true... I've been getting emails and stuff.... and people know not to call me... and I use my computer to call during the day as I'm always on it.

this. i'm actually really proud that i have a gratis nokia phone that i only use for, like, making phonecalls, and not any of that fancy smartphone shit. everyone's got one (and i mean everyone), so not having one makes me feel really cutting-edge :angel:

I've been living in the Philippines for over two years and we all received Nokia phones when we got here and I have to say my basic little phone with it's built-in flashlight and radio is the best damn phone I've ever had. It's super sturdy and has even survived me swimming in the ocean with it (multiple times :sobbing: ). I'm totally bringing it with me back to America to try to unlock it.

I'm going to be so confused by the advances in technology when I get home. I mean...WTF is an Android? Dual core? WP7? iOS? What is this stuff? :bigcry: And phones come with Microsoft Windows now??????

Basically PDA's with phones, and now they are called "smartphones". For some reason they got really popular these last few years, even though they've always existed, but I guess they were too expensive. And those things are operating systems for them. I'm not sure if getting one will be more of a distraction than anything else.

BlackBerry back up after outage

LONDON – BlackBerry services buzzed back to life Thursday across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India, after a three-day outage that interrupted email messages and Internet services for millions of customers.

Research In Motion Ltd., the Canadian company that makes the phones, posted a statement Thursday that says services are better. BlackBerry users around the world have faced huge problems over the past few days getting and receiving emails and messages, as well as launching Internet services.


The company says it will monitor the situation around the clock to make sure there's no repeat.


Research In Motion said a crucial link in its European infrastructure failed Monday, and that its backup also failed. Although the underlying issues have been repaired, the system had built up a backlog of emails and messages that needed to be wound down.

The failure in Europe soon spread to regions all round the world, including the U.S. and Asia.


Users fumed and confidence in the brand was strained, at a time the company is fighting a big battle with Apple Inc. — the timing of the outage was particularly unfortunate as it came on the launch of Apple's new iPhone.
