SUBSIM mobile phone thread

Post your cell/mobile here. What are you using, what do you like/dislike about it?

I have been using a super cheap Go Phone from Wal-mart for about 2 years, because my last nice phone was drowned on a motorcycle ride. So, I grabbed a $15 phone from Wal-mart and put my chip in it.

Since I am going to the wilds of Denmark next week, I decided to move up to e better phone, one that will work world-wide, has a decent camera, and storage. I chose the Samsung Solstice.



It is very thin and small, so I can carry it in a pocket, as opposed to a belt clip or holster. It has a 2MP camera, takes video, can be expanded to 8GB with a micro-SD chip. The only cons so far is removing the battery cover--definitely not easy, and knowing I am carrying an expensive phone as opposed to my previous "disposable" one means I actually have to take care of it. It was nice not having to worry about it. I guess I'll get used to that.

That would be unwise

Expensive (don't care though)

I have the Samsung Ace that is international capable. I see the Mogal posted by Thomen. We had two in the office. Both broke in under a year. Then again both users of the phone were very rough with them. These phones were not international capable. I like the ACE. Very similar to the Blackberry. To me the cell is a work phone and should be a business like phone. The new touch phones look more like a gadget to me. I see my nephew playing games on it all day and downloading pictures he does not need to be seeing. Anyway, mobile 6.1 is an ok program. I understand Blackberry's program is very good.

Nokia 3220

Got this around the time it came out (2005-2006?), still works like a charm (12hrs on the bottom of a lake, dropped, kicked, thrown to a wall a few times). Great great great phone.

I'm temporarily using my old Nokia E60 again because the screen of my new phone broke. Expect this to change in ~three weeks.

This one still does the job, ie. one can call with it, write and receive text messages and e-mail and surf the internet. Everything else is a bonus
