Not a big problem on my old, but still going strong, SE T68i... :)

And even if I replace that, it probably will be with an equally simple phone. No smartphones running Symbian for me, if I can avoid it... I like my phones as simple as possible... :cool:

Havn't had a mobile phone in over 3 years, better quality of life without.
No problem: Just don't order an answering service (even if it's free) and turn off the phone (or at least the sound) whenever you're busy or relaxing... the good life with a cell phone, whenever you need it... ;)

Bound To Happen

Which is exactly why Apple should come out with their own cell phone.

Hi, um, off the top of my head - Nokia, Siemens, Samsung, Sony Ericsson (although they don't use Nokia's Series 60 Symbian, but Symbian UIQ), BenQ (same thing as SE), Motorola (same thing as SE), various Japanese brand phones only released in Japan, Sendo, Panasonic, Lenovo and Arima (which as well uses Symnian UIQ).

There's a virus available to any text message receiving phone.... it's called Jamster or Spamster ... grrrr that crazy frog advert is very very very irritating! I actually tried getting a ringtone from them, they charged me like £3 i didn't get the ringtone and they spam me with 4 or 5 text's at 3am which wakes me up! grrr verry annoying.

I'd guess thats called "Adware" or "Spam" but for your mobile life.

Have fun with it. ;)

Just wondering.... why is your phone on at 3 AM?

It's always on under my pillow whilst charging .. probably not the wisest thing to do but it wakes me up when the alarm goes off.

I swore I'd never get one, and yet... I've had one for a couple years now. The key for me is just knowing you're not subject to everyone's beckoned call. You answer the phone when YOU want to. Otherwise, if it's important, they'll leave a voicemail and you'll get back to them when it's convenient for YOU.

Some people get bent out of shape over that, but I don't care. :)

And also bombards your brain with little bits of radiation all night.

I hope you don't keep a loaded gun there too, answering the wrong one could be fatal!
