A Dumb Phone...or Person?

Around March 2011, I was ecstatic to have purchased my first ever smart phone, the BlackBerry 9300 curve! It was my baby! I showed him off, I explored through all the applications, added people to my BBM list, convinced friends to buy a model of the phone. It was just so nice.

But now, do I call it a smart phone? Not so much. I wouldn't blame the BlackBerry company. There is always a chance of technical faults taking over any form of technology. We all make mistakes. So do the people who make stuff. If it's not the person's fault, it's the machine's fault.

When I got my first phone, it was a basic Nokia model with that wonderful snake game in it and NO color screen. I was so happy with that phone. I managed to lead a life without constantly keeping in touch with my friends through chat and social networks. Once I made good friends, I got my BlackBerry. I was constantly in touch with them. But at some point, we didn't have much to talk about. Right now, without my BlackBerry services, am reminiscing my days of the Nokia basic model. All I can say is, my BlackBerry has Sudoku in it, but a part of me misses the snake game.
