Gadget history: Mobile phones

Nokia 6150This might turn into a series of posts. I thought it’d be cool to list the gadgets in a certain category that I’ve actually owned and used, and do a sort of short hindsight reviews. I’m pretty sure there are people out there who’ve used a some of the same devices and share (or disagree with) my experiences. First up: mobile phones.

I’ve had seven up until now, if you count the first one which I actually shared with my girlfriend. Cell phones, and the contracts that came with them were terribly expensive back then. Both the first and last ones are from Nokia, but that’s just about the only thing they have in common.

Nokia 6230i bricked?

It seems my Nokia 6230i is stuck in some sort of weird reset cycle. It starts up until I get to the screen where I need to set the time, and then the screen turns black. Sometimes it comes back up, but mostly the phone either restarts again or turns itself off. I’ve been having a love-hate relationship with this phone ever since I got it, and it appears that besides the poor usability, the crappy camera and the dito screen its unable to withstand a year and a half of daily use…

Anyone know how of any tricks to get it working again?
