    Mobile Phones

    Fucking mobile phones piss me off, I have never had a phone more than 6 months before it starts to fuck up, the one I have now has started turning itself off! I'm not rough on a phone and seldom even make any sudden moves to upset it in my pocket.

    How long on average does your phone last and any ideas why my phone always break so soon??

    Phones should last till you change them. Been with mine 3 years and it was 3 years old when it was given to me, if it burps it's out, and with that understanding we get along real fine.

    I've had my Nokia 3310 for over two years now. Bought it used for 1000 baht. Replaced the battery once. Star performer. Rugged. Dropped it in the water several times. Took it apart and dried with a hair drier and it's A-OK. Sure, no camera, tiny screen, doesn't play MP3's. It's a phone, pure and simple. It works.

    Had an 8210 for 6 years then one vacation in Leoi when I left the doors to the balcony open the mist got in from the Maekong and I awoke to my phone in a pool of condensation - never worked since.

    I had one of those "ruggedised" Nokias for 3 years and it never missed a beat. I used to love showing people how you could drop it or throw it around without any problems and leave it in a pool of beer. Then a mate gave me a newer one and I got the phone bug so ended up buying a Samsung E900 in Singapore (cheap US$200) as the new models were out.

    It's great, 2MP camera, touch screen buttons etc but I won't be showing anyone how tough it is at the pub. I even carry it in a soft case lest I scratch it.

    people are stupid, buying expensive mobiles as a status thing, they are fashion items these days, not built to last

    The older Nokia seems to be strong and last longer than the new ones for pooves

    Seems like his attitude to telephones is as changeful as his relationships.

    keda,
    I read that you bought a treo for your wife.
    I also own a treo 680 but I canīt call any more,
    It seems that they have to change the interior antenna of my treo.
    Do you know where I can do this in Thailand?
    Thanks

    Had the Samsung Galaxy Spica a couple of years now, it's taken heaps of abuse, I've changed the screen protector once, otherwise it's pretty well mint. Been dropped and all sorts.

    ^^You're sooooo cutting edge. I probably use less than 5% of the functions on my BB.

    That's why I keep it as my Thailand phone. If I lose it, or one of Butters ladyboys fleeces me stumbling down Loi Kroh at four in the morning, I won't give a flying fuck.

    That's because in your case it would have been dropped dozens of times over that period...
