Another Sweet Talk ends in a Wildfire Android
A while ago, I wrote on how I got sweet talked into taking out another contract with my phone company. They gave me a lovely new phone. Marketing or Sweet Talkers
It has been working well for nearly a year but had problems last month. A friend of mine asked me to tell the mobile company to replace it but I was hesitant because I couldn't remember if I had come to the end of the previous contract but after checking prices of new phones I decided to call the mobile company.
They say “If you don’t ask, you don get”. I was surprised that the Customer Service Assistant of 3G were very willing to give me a new phone. I wasn’t particular about any model so he recommended an Android Wildfire HTC.
Comes in Black or White.
Well it arrived (white colour) and it’s a touch screen which seemed too sophisticated for my liking. Within the first few days:
- I accidentally cut off people in mid conversation.
- Sent a text message to the wrong person. (such a sensitive screen)
- Took about 10 minutes to compose texts while talking to my phone, for bringing up wrong letters. Yes. I do talk to things sometimes, when I am irritated ٩(•̮̮̃•̃)۶
HTC Wildfire Android is a lovely slim phone, with lots of interesting features and applications, but takes a bit of getting used to, particularly touching the screen to send text messages. It's like a mini-computer and particularly useful for those that use the internet a lot - hence the large screen. (If you do, then it's best choosing a contract with 24/7 access to internet.
I like the fact that:
a) It allows you to block numbers. So, they go straight to Voicemail. First time I've had this on a phone.
b) If your phone is lost or stolen, it can be located. However, you have to select the option on the "Phone menu", for that service to work.
** 3.2 inch screen with a memory card included.
** Connects with Bluetooth, wifi and USB.
** 5 Mega Pixel Camera, with an LED Flash.
** Depnding on how much you use the network, WiFi and GPS, you should get a full day’s use out of one charge.
