My first time


To me,that first time of holding it in my hands was the best time. I may have had others but to me,that first was the best


More than a decade ago when GSM came into the nation,having one of the phones in the picture meant you were rich or had a rich provider because SIM card alone was more than N10,000.
I remember my first phone. A Siemens. Dark blue in colour and my ringtone was Halleluyah,Halleluyah,Halleluya.

I remember the day i went to MTN Port Harcourt to buy the phone and my SIM card. The man that was fixing my SIM inside my phone was even hiding it from me(it was a secret affair then. Lol).

My Siemens was da bomb. A bit curved at the head. The funniest thing about it was that it did not have Incoming Call history. If someone called then,i would copy the number manually before i picked the call. It showed call history for Outgoing calls though.


The phone had no games ,nothing spectacular but i adored it. It was so simple that anybody could use it. I really,truly loved that phone and it was with a heavy heart that i dropped it when the buttons became hard to press. A call would come in and i would be struggling with a key to receive the call and the call would end. Lol.


So,what was your first phone and what were the features it had?.

    I can't remember some of the features now but I had a packet for it which I used to clip on my belt. Strutting like a boss. Lolz. Now,no child will touch that kind of phone with a mile long pole. I am having a good laugh here
