Aww, I loved those old phones. I owned both of them, but of course I had custom casings on them, to reflect my mood, being the frivolous Westerner that I didn’t know I was. I’m not sure if they sent/recevied text messages, but I remember 10 years ago people weren’t really that into texting. All I ever had to use it for was to give me a dial tone when I wanted to call someone, and to vibrate when someone was calling me, on the rare occasion that I had it on at all.
I remember voice mail was important to me back then. After a year of not having it in China, I can’t seem to be enthusiastic about it anymore.
Anyway, I have an old iPhone now, 2nd generation, jailbroken in China, with a TMobile prepaid sim card in it. I told myself I’d wait until I got to New York to come up with a more permanent phone solution. Should I upgrade and get the AT&T service? Do I get a new account in the 212? Do I even need one, with Google Voice coming down the pipe? Who knows.
