Feigning normality since 1973

New Phone!

Filed in: Misc.

Sanyo SCP-3200
I went hunting recently for a new mobile phone. For various reasons I wanted to switch from Vodafone to Telecom, as Vodafone's prepay plan was no longer suitable for my purposes. My primary condition of sale was that the phone had to be $200 or less - paying more for a cell phone is just excessive.

After checking out what phones Telecom had on offer, I checked out the online reviews (having been stung before) and only one phone in the price range I'd set had uniformly good reviews - the Sanyo SCP-3200. The only problem was that Telecom was only offering it in one colour: pink. I'm not a huge fan of pink.

I asked at the local Telecom shop and was told that Sanyo used to have it in black as well, but it had been discontinued. After visiting another four or five shops, I finally found a black one in the Noel Leemings in Queensgate, so I'm now the proud owner of a Sanyo SCP-3200!

The only thing remaining is to work out how to get my custom Doctor Who ringtone onto it. Reading the manual, I'm beginning to suspect that Telecom has neutered the bluetooth support so that it's only possible to load files on by paying for them off Telecom's site...

Is that your family on the screen there? They've changed a LOT since I was last down!
