More on the N78

You know sometimes you need to really click with your phone? Understand it? Feel it? Want to share your pillow with it? Have your palm reshape itself to contour better to its fit?

Well, I'm not giving my N78 a Valentiny gift for sure. It's a good phone, but I'm not earlobes over it.

I really like its standby theme with 15 shortcuts (when the vertical icon bar is used)- especially the notes and audio message features. The latter is useful for when you have noteworthy stuff deliberately cross your mind when in the shower or on the road. They are the same thoughts that disappears the moment you whip out a pencil. The only problem is that now that I got this audio message function working, I just don't seem to have many interesting thoughts passing me by. And the ones I do record don't seem all that funky when I play them back.

Anyways, lets focus on the phone right? Yep if you can't live without the delete duplicate contacts function on your phone then you would be screwed. I have 800 numbers on my phone, and no patience to sift through 'em. In fact I'd pay anyone 10 K.D to freaking do it for me. Maybe at Starbucks over the coffee and cupcake you buy me.

Another annoying thing is what happens when I receive a message saying I've missed these calls. I'm already ticked off as my phone hasn't been switched off to miss any calls. It's been lazing right here next to me, bored to death due to its own lack of utility, yearning to vibrate on my table. So I browse through the message and realize this phone cannot grab the # through the regular Use Details> Use Number feature. 8 digits! Thats a mouthful if you can't write it down. Anyways, I hope I don't have to review it anymore as it is already almost as ancient as amber. Minus the Value.

My phone just recently took a crapper and I am in search of the perfect replacement. It's really hard being between relationships and I have vowed to commit to a replacement phone this weekend. I cannot live without that little connection to the world.

Cellphones can suck it. I don't know how to use any of them.

Ah the old phones were just so much more simpler I tell ya, blognut. There is a serious problem when all these choices confront us!

Hahhahaah Braja, I agree. I feel awful if I dont as many of the features of my phone as I possibly can.....

Cheryl, lol, I'm sure technology is gonna change soon enough that we dont even need 'em! :-D
