It was a sad moment as this particular phone had been with me for many years and had endured many “unlimited” minutes…..and when I mean many; Like 20% of my awake time (did a study).
So, I went to see my “Russian” connection and had them unlock my 2 old Blackberry’s and I can now say that I am in the 21st century…sort of.
Why “Unlock” you ask?
Cause I’ve had my Cell since way back when only “International Investors” used them and I have a Special SIM card.
Special as in they don’t make them any more; every time I try and upgrade the dude on the other side of the line calls me an idiot for trying to upgrade my “Special” plan.
Well I guess that as long as my Russians are in business I will continue with my “Special” phone.
Hey, at least I can now see text messages.
BTW; I also have a Bat phone (another story, for another day).
