Wrong Buy!

I am so pissed, my phone screen has been going blank for a while now, so I refused to slide it shut so it stays on. So you can imagine my N81 staying open even in my pocket because if I slide it shut I might have to restart the phone to get to see anything on the screen.

.

So I go ahead to seek out a replacement, and followed the advice of my friend and colleague. I buy a Nokia6700, hard metal sleek flat small phone. Now I have owned the phone for a little over 12hours and it is driving me mad. I managed to do a phone switch and got all my contacts and calendar entries transferred.

.

Now I save contacts by what I can remember people by, e.g. all the people that work in UBA have the letters, UBA after their names, with a space in between, such that all I have to do is type the letters, UBA and all the entries with the letter UBA appear, even names like Ubani.etc. But with this bitch, I have to remember the first names of the individuals and type it. As in, my Contact list is surname first so I have to recall the names I saved it as and, OMG, I do not have the patience for that kind of thing. It is driving me mad here. I am already searching for names.

.

I’m so upset this morning; I want to sell the phone for N30k, N7k less than I paid for it yesterday evening. I can’t take it back to the person I bought it from because I gave him heat for him to get it, now I don’t want it. Or I might just give the damn phone out.

.

It is still very brand new; all the waterproof sheets are intact. I’ve got the packet at home, & I’m tempted to go home right now & swap my sim right back in the half dead phone, & sell this nonsense. If I could transfer all my contacts to my blackberry, I might just have only one phone.

.

Some one here should tell me they want the phone & I’ll DHL it right to you (in Nigeria only) if you promise to pay N35k in my account on receipt of the phone. I’m really unhappy about this purchase.

what if someone asks for it and never pays up...lol. when i begin to lament my own phone, you'd thank God for yours.

ZeL said...

Chei ya. Sorry, I hate being stuck with something i dont like especially a phone.

The platform being used by both phones are different. N-series, being higher.

Thats kind of risky, what if the person doesnt pay?

Neway I hope u find a good buy or u could just "dash" me.

Cheer up sha.

Baroque, for being my friend (seemingly in need at this point, no, strike that out), i shall nobly offer my assistance.

If you bought the phone, 'tis only fair you 'sell' the phone, if tis not user-friendly to you. As such, i offer you (since i don't need a phone) N18,946. Not a kobo less, not a naira more.

u know there was a time, u walked around with no cell phone and ur life was okay. If u needed to reach someone, u went to Nitel call center or you wrote a letter and they got it in like six months...

Rita said...

Is there no way of setting the phone to read first names? Let me think...

If not dash me the phone....

Queen of My Castle said...

Hola papito. All I can offer is...and a little bit of...and a WHOLE lot of...

Anyaposh said...

that sucks. it's painful when a replacement is actually a downgrade. so unfortunate. I say trade it in for another blackberry.

NoLimit said...

Are you it's not something to do with the phone setting?
you may want to explore that option before selling it!
But *ahem8 if you want to give out...I'm fertile ground for blessings :D

bArOquE said...

~MsCatwalq, LOL…it is a case of how did I ever live without you? ever?

~Rita, there’s no way at all, & am not dashing you the phone…someone is about to pay N20k for it, unless you want to beat that price

~MissNatural, they’re my people, that’s how we rolls, cracking ribs everywhere we go *wink*

~QOMyCastle, can you really??? I don’t believe you…prove it

~Anyaposh, another blackberry??? Please explain

~NoLimit, LOL@fertile ground for blessings…but you have to sow before you reap, innit?
