The advent of mobile phone is a boon to our society. It has not only brought world closer but also has made technology available to a common man .Exchange of messages has become so easy that within no time one can convey information in the form of texts, pictures or videos.
Although, there are so many kinds of mobile sets available due to continuous up gradation of models and software, keeping my first phone with me as a remembrance really makes me feel happy. I still have my first phone which is Nokia 1100. I purchased it from Gaffar market in New Delhi. Though it is fifteen years old, I am still very possessive about it .I had purchased it out of my pocket money and I got it for Rs 5000. It’s a grey colored, small and trendy set. The phone has got basic features without a touch screen and the internet facility. I used it to make calls while on move and be in touch with my family and friends.
It is still functional and I sometimes use it, especially when I am travelling. It’s really convenient with an excellent battery backup and I need not care of recharging it time and again. The ring tones are of vintage style, which make me feel nostalgic and remind me of my young days. Its flash light is so powerful that there is no requirement of a torch in my house. The best part of this set is its simple operation and management. The set is so strong and sturdy that even if it falls down one need not worry about its malfunctioning. Moreover, even if there are some breakages the spares are very cheap.
It’s saddening that the set is losing its charm as there are so many new smart phones available. Nowadays, its spares are not available in open market and I have to order to the Nokia company for the replacement. Irrespective of this, I adore my Nokia 1100 and do not want to part away from it.
