One of its kind

Today I traded in my Nokia 3310. My first mobile phone. My favourite phone. Millions of sms messages and calls later, several accidental dropping-on-the-floor incidents later, it still survived. And each time, it emerged sturdier and better than ever.

New models hit the market every other day, but I clutched on to my 3310 for years in spite of people asking me why I had such a 'dinosaur' and 'ancient' and 'old-fashioned' phone. One of my friends even refers to it as "the blue brick". But I loved the phone.

But I guess it was time for me to move on. My new Samsung phone is pretty. Flips open. Is light in weight. Looks stylish. Probably works. I have not yet figured out its workings. I suppose that's gonna take me a while.

You can add all the cameras and MP3 players and radios to the mobile phones of today, but you can never make another Nokia 3310.

Haha, sorry about the rude-looking uppercase sms messages! :P

I'm sure the new phone has the lower case smsing feature, just need to figure it out :)
