The Amazing Grace of Nokia

I just want to share my profound experiences using my three Nokia cell phones, although they don’t have full features like other high end phones yet, they have their own  “amazing grace” story.
Yes, they are old style but their use is inevitable. They served as my reliable means of communication, even there is competition of models among them, still I love them all.
It doesn’t matter to me about the prestige and fashion statement of handset just to impress others. For as long as it is good key information portal that can easily increase productivity and convenience this will  satisfy me already, because I know there is never ending change.
=======================

The use of my 6300 cellphone utilized my time stuck in Manila while going back and for the traffic jams just listening to harmonious, melodious songs from my playlist.

This cell phone got more of humorous jokes and messages that entertained me while I was still in the Philippines. Here in Kuwait, I miss receiving and forwarding  messages because all are busy people including me. 

This stores great inspirational pictures of motivational quotes, short videos  and pictures of my family, which I consider my best inspiration.

=======================

=============================

But, instead of getting a higher level of phone, I got the lower one which is the 1208. This I considered a compatible hand phone for traveler like me.
 And my customized phone ring tone I use is  the magical one.
So, I bought this one to protect myself from the consequences of theft in using a hand phone in public places.

For me, a  hand phone which is extremely good quality can be describe as simple one like me. 
                             
Later on, I used this for my roaming number when I came here in Kuwait and I chose Globe network for such service. The most benefit I got from my roaming number  is staying long as it will stay connected with me anytime and anywhere in any part of the world.
My 1208 is not expensive. As long as it connects everyone with my family and friends it’s okay. With all my phone units, you can call or send me a text message anytime of the day and night. I want  my family to feel that I’m not away, not even that far away.
An OFW cannot survive without any roaming phone it is the only cheapest way connecting us even if we cannot receive a call, still we can be reached through SMS.

It has become a vital element for every person and good there is cheap  alternative  to calling and useful for like us OFW who frequently give short messages, simply keeping in touch and a good way to save money.


This also serves to me as alarm at night to remind me that time is up and I need to go to bed because sometimes I exceed more than the given time for my passion, this is why it is always next to my laptop also.


======================

The benefits of  this cell phone to me in any emergency situations is undisputed for us who work at school.

I choose to buy this model type here in Kuwait because it is handy and it will be used non-stop during school hours.

I can easily get in touch with school admin coordinators from different branches and the rest of school staff. And get to know about different crucial information of school issues  in a span of seconds.
Even my cell phone cannot receive forwarded emails, still it can receive messages that can inform me that their reports were sent through emails.
For immediate announcements of meetings at work, for documents and reports I will be needing or just to inform them that I will be late for a meeting because I am stuck in the middle of nowhere. A really good way out of emergencies.
If school  maintenance will be having a problem in the middle of nowhere, this cell phone is of great use. It really serves as a navigation on my hands because I never get lost using my cell phone. I never get out of touch with school subordinates. Even my cell phone is not upgraded and not equipped with new technology still, it gives me details of what I need. During early mornings, I use this as my wake up call while  the middle of the day serves as a reminder.

=========================

Through my cell phone I can share motivational quotes and advices.

All of my cell phones enhanced me and helped my financial status too even for just a small income. I use them all for an Eload Retailing Business here in Kuwait, I served three big mobile companies and the  reward is having  good friends whom I can help in times of need.


This also helped me start  a small business in the Philippines.


Yes, my cell phone can be considered my own image, my 6300 has congratulations wallpaper, my 1208 and 1202 profile display settings  is one  word,  Believe.  Even my ringing tone is personalized, it’s a magical tone for my reminders and when I need to use loud settings in profile.  In my own sense, I customize them with my own liking from their ringing tone and their screen. I like it when my gadgets have my personal touch. While in my rules, all  my cell phones are having  one beep  and level two of volume only. And at night, they are in silent mode away from me.

Having a  cell phone is a necessity these days and it is an inevitable truth for very basic thing of making call, for just a touch of your finger tips.

I enjoy watching my school mates also known as our school staff, teachers and office mates while in some corner of school after school hours and in our rest day… each enjoying their roaming cell phones receiving special messages from their love ones.


As time passes by, technology is growing and moving faster. The most important and common part of technology in our life is mobile phone technology. We bring our cell phone with us everywhere we go and use it on a daily basis. It becomes part and parcel of our daily life.  But as time goes on, mobile technology  continues to develop many features but hoping here that everyone is gaining also good things in using their cell phone.

All these cellphones I have, gave me different emotions from the past years up to present… emotions that established and created me.


This is my own integral part of my life and so I am thankful.

=======================
There are car accidents occurring everywhere due to the lack of attentiveness of drivers using their cell phones because it has been proven to be a big distraction in wide highways here in Kuwait with a speed of 120.

Drivers who use their mobiles whilst driving are the only “health risk” that can be proven, the drivers get distracted and lose control over the vehicle. This is among other top  issues on a lengthy list here in Kuwait. Our school has a program for bus drivers because the safety of young lives is in their hands. And so we are very particular about this kind of issue.

======================

One of the best things I enjoy most and will  never forget in my life is helping newly hired employees of our school. They all came from the Philippines like myself. I offered help to them if necessary so they can call their loved ones back home. If you are a new OFW here in Kuwait, you cannot easily purchase sim cards, buy some gadgets or have internet connection if you still do not have your Civil ID. I have experienced this before being new in a foreign land and so I try to be of help to others in any simple way that I can.

==============================
Overall, productivity and convenience benefits are paramount.

This is really a true gift of God for us, originally intended for staying in touch with our good friends and family  and be still connected while  away from home.

 
Thank God for this Amazing Grace of gift through Nokia.

    People nowadays are so into high end phones, kahit hinde na magkanda-ugaga sa pag-ipon para lang sa phone. But really, all phones are the same – for me. heheh! It is used for calling or texting to keep in touch. Though I can't blame others to create phones with versatility…pang entertain na din. 🙂

    Wow! Loyal Nokia customer. I think I've owned 3 low end Nokias (3210, 3310, and another one) when texting first came into vogue. After that I became a Sony Ericsson die-hard customer but I've switched to Samsung now. :p

    As long as my old reliable cellphone is still function perfectly, then there's no need to buy the latest one.
    Though I like most of the latest cellphones that available in the market today, and if I have an extra money then why not get one, however I don't want to use my credit card just to get those expensive gadgets… 🙂
