My lifetime of Handphones!!

Hehe my experience with Maxis postpaid has a span of over 10 years now, i think i started using it since 1993, hmmm 14 years not 10.

I still remember last time the monthly fee was 60 bucks and then the calls charges were crazy, there were times when my bill reached 300 bucks and i could hardly afford it,

I was using a very old Ericsson 218 phone which was a known killer with it's magnetic field. You can stick 3 to 4 1cent coins to it and they won't fall off. Crazy huh, i can put the phone into my bro's car, then lock the car with alarm, then call the phone and the car alarm will go off, hahaha HUGE phone ringing tone :P

(218)Remember this Dinosaur :P My first ever phone. Dropped until it spoil.

(338)And this one too, i have a weakness for small phones even back then :P

Anyhow, after a long while of using it, then came along the RM30 postpaid + calls, this i used for quite a long while, quite ok for a low call rate fella when my calls hardly touch 100 bucks.

(Startec X)This was my next phone, small, light, stylish, but spoils fast because of the flip

Then they stepped up some more with the 75 bucks plan, i switched immediately, but later found out that i am calling less and less and depend on internet more than on the phone. So i changed back to the 30 bucks postpaid plan and my bills were like 50 to 60 dollar per month, so i'm still ok with that.

(Nokia 8250)And then this came along, Blue display Woohoo!!, now so ah beng liao.

Now they come up with the 50 bucks per month plan, good for me, i see the statement of my bills come up to 20++ bucks only per month, that means i burn 20 bucks a month for not calling enough. 15cents to any Maxis around malaysia is a good price indeed and i can call my friends in Ipoh, Penang and JB without worrying of the flying sky high charges.

(Sony Ericsson K700i)Next was this, Mp3, LCD, Camera 1.3megapixel, how to resist

Oh well, still i'm happy with it at the moment, cut down my phone charges quite much, i think if they have a 30 bucks plan i'd definately go there, hahahaha. Cheers. Oh ya i've tried Maxis and Celcom, Maxis totally Rox Celcom's Socks.

(K750i)My current phone, i hate sony ericsson joysticks, they spoil easily

So what did you guys use all along?
