The phone is still in good condition, the battery still lasts and the 8G built-in memory and other features has not been fully utilized. However, of late my hand phone has giving me a problem, a critical one that is. For some stupid reason, my hand phone can no longer receive text messages. I don’t know why and what caused this problem. Usually when I send a text message, I will receive a notification when the text is delivered. Then the text will automatically go into the ‘Sent’ folder. But now, when I send a text message, I no longer receive the notification but the text goes into the ‘Sent’ folder.
I switched off and switched my hand phone on again and tons of texts will come in, from God knows when. This is not good. What if someone text me something important? So to those who may have texted me and I did not reply, I’m sorry. I may not have received your text to begin with so don’t go texting me saying, “u bz sgt ke? Xreply msg i?” or “sombong ye sekarang, msg xbls.” But then again, I may have intentionally ignored your text(s). How about that?
Luckily, I have a backup hand phone, which is a Samsung C140, a very simple hand phone, with polyphonic ring tones, no camera and 64k colour resolution whatever.
Go ahead you can laugh at me. But at least I can send and receive texts peacefully. The only problem is that most, if not all contacts are in my Sony E and I did not copy it to my SIM. So now I don’t know who’s who. So don’t be surprised if you text me and I’d ask “Siapa ni?" (if I’m rajin, I’ll explain about my hand phone problem but I’m almost always not rajin to do the explaining) and don’t go around feeling offended that I don’t have your number anymore or assume that I have forgotten you.
OK. Here’s what I’ll do. I need to backup all datas in my Sony E before sending it to the shop for repair, which I don’t know when. I hope it won’t cost me much. I know I might be ketinggalan for not using a BB or Iphone but I couldn’t care less (for now). I still love my Sony E and apart from the problem that it’s giving me, it is still in good condition so it would be a waste to get a new hand phone.
If the repair costs more than 200bucks, I have 2 options:
- use the Samsung C140 even though it’s without camera, walkman, mms and wifi; or
- buy a new hand phone-this will lead to another set of problems i.e. what/which phone to buy, how much is the budget, what am I gonna do with the Sony E etc.
