New Phone

Posted on 2008-12-20 17:57:52

So, I got a nice end-of-year bonus this year, so I decided to treat myself well and buy a new mobile phone. My old one is from 2002, and although it still isn’t a total disgrace compared to the more modern phones, it’s getting old and the battery is degrading.

Anyway, long story short: my new Nokia 3120 arrived today and I’ve been toying with it for most of the afternoon.

The most interesting part was selecting my new ringtone… I absolutely hate having a fancy ringtone go off on a 3-minute ballad when someone calls me, while I’m rummaging around in my bag trying to find the damn thing.

My previous phone was set to the Nokia tune (the first polyphonic one) and set to “ring once”. The new Nokia tune is much more fancy, hardly recognisable, and goes on for at least a minute, so no, that’s not it.

I finally settled on the “Nostalgia” tone. Just a nice old “trrrrinngggg” sound, and reminds me of the XKCD comic ‘Tones’.
