On Friday, October 28, I noticed that my cellphone, Ceru, was acting very weird. Everything was working all right, except when I tried to make or receive calls. No sound came out of it. Yet the ringer worked and so does the alarm . . . O_O; Ergo, today, I went to One Stop on base (the same place I bought Ceru) to see if I could get it fixed. According to the bloke who worked there, it would cost me more to get the phone fixed, so I’d be better off getting another one, instead.
The first phone he showed me was the refurbished LG-LU4500 model for $80. I was not enamoured by the pink colour, nor some of the scratches on the phone, but I did want to try a touch phone. Plus, of all the phones he’d shown me, he highly recommended this one. So I ended up buying this and naming it Pearly. The touch screen is not as good as my 2nd gen iPod Touch, but I’m getting used to it as I practise. It’s not a bad phone, really. Not bad for the price considering it was probably $500+ when it first came out.
At least I can now receive and send calls and hear everything unlike my other one! I’ll still be keeping Ceru (as an alarm clock along with my other old phone), so it is still here to stay. But Pearly shall be the ultimate pimpity pimpy phone.
