A mobile saga

Finally I am really needing a cell phone. Really as in not just for fun, and not because I have to have a cell. Because I need it for communication. And duhh...

CB has offered that he'll give me his mobile phone, I just have to wait for a month or so. Although I am a little bored by that cell (because I've played with it for quite sometime now), but still, its camera is simply awesome. And I have frenzy of taking snaps nowadays. His is the 3220, a very nice cell.

And its shape, design, its so cool. But a month?

That brings me to reminisce once more about my love. Yeah, my true love in cell phones. The one and only, 8210.

Shocked? Its the epitome of elegance. Its small, handy, elegant, no-fuss etc. And it looks so cool in black! It was also my first cell. And was so devastated when it died on me. Sad, poor me!

I ll buy it again if I get a fresh piece. Sadly, all 8210s available in Pakistan are either used or refurbished. Heard they don't make em anymore.

My second cell, 8910, this was the uber-coolest cell around. Used by Tom Cruise in MI2 (I heard that from someone, dont remember khud say), all my friends went ga-ga over this cell. But then, some one wished too much upon it, and the sliding mechanism got faulty, and slowly, it went into oblivion.

Guess this cell isnt meant for a frequent user like me.

So, I ve got this very rich taste in cell phones. And now, eight months when 8910 gave up on me, I am looking for another cell.

Aray haan, another cell that I feel very elegant is the 7650. Isnt it? Sadly, No more fresh pieces of this cell either :(

Now I m thinking of going for 2600. Its cheap, and I think I ve fallen in love with its simplicity. But, CB advised me against wasting money on cell phones, and said that I should buy a real-cheap cell, like 1100.

But I like 2300 more, this cell was my love-at-first-sight. Pluses: it has got FM Radio builtin. But it is priced at around 4,000+. Not that its a big issue, but I've heard that there is an inherent problem with this cell.

Or the 1100, this cell is real cheap. Its simplicity is its strength. And the Warid Telecom people have comeup with this deal of 1100 + Warid sim at something around 3,000. Cool!

Now just that I have to make a decision. Should it be 2600, 2300, or 1100. Please help! Edit: I also had 8850, but I hated that cell, that's why I didnt bother to put up its pic.

My first mobile was a nokia 8250. I still haven't gotten over that mobile. It had this totally cool skin with a dragon at it's front which would light everytime my phone would ring.
And then i guess kisi ki nazar lag gaye, the casing cracked:(

Lol I just can guess!

Jab tak I wont get to see it by myself(the dragon, not the phone) funny images will keep popping up in my mind!

No offence though ;)

Oh s!d jee! How I hated Lahore when the city snatched my cell away from me. My favorite cell, my life, my love...

I shall never forgive Lahore for that, never, NEVER.
