The Future is Here: My Exciting New Phone

I landed in Israel a couple of days ago and discovered Orange Israel is out-of-stock on sim cards for iPhone 4.

I was given a temporary phone to use in the meanwhile.

Nokia-phone

No touch screen (judging by the scratches, it’s more of a scratch screen), no Internet, no facebook, no Twitter, no web browsing, horrible interface. I tried sending an SMS earlier and couldn’t figure out how to type with such a strange keyboard.

How did all these ancient people who lived in the early 2000s get through life with such primitive means of communication?

So, I need to learn to be careful of what I wish for:

I became a hotspot hunter, using my iPhone as a contact manager, and whenever there is wifi around, I breath deeply and connect to see what’s new out there in the inter-webs.

In fact, the only thing my Nokia does is initiating and receiving phone calls. And it does it quite well actually: good call quality, good volume and no dropped calls.

I think I’ll miss it once I get back to my iPhone.

  1. Orange service rep tried cutting 3 different sim cards but they all failed to work. I hope it's a sim issue and not a jailbreak / unlock one.
