Finally, A New Phone

Posted on Updated on

Globe held a 3-day phone sale at Trinoma just this weekends from December 5-7.

I’ve known about the event Saturday evening and decided to get a new phone for me and my brother. The phones on sale are really really cheap in prices and i could say that the features are good.

Yesterday, we went back there just after going to church. The line-up of people buying phone is soooooooooo long just like when you are going to watch a box-office hit movie.

There are 2 lines when you want to avail: one for paying and one for the demo and testing. It took me an hour and a half in the payment area. I was getting frustrated but i kept myself calm. It was so boring sitting my ass down there. The people assigned as cashiers work fast, it’s just a very very very long line and a very big volume of people. While waiting for your turn, they give a free ballpen and candies. After my payment, i went to the demo and testing area.

The whole agenda took me roughly 2 hours. SO tiring.

I bought myPhone B31, one for me and my brother. Beside of being inexpensive, all the features I want is in it.

  • slim
  • camera phone
  • MP3/MP4 player
  • FM tuner
  • colored phone
  • expandable memory(Micro-SD Memory Card)

myPhone B31

I haven’t bought a new mobile since college which was almost 3 years ago. It was a luxury for me to buy one so I abstain myself for getting one hehe. And besides, I have other things to prioritize more when it comes to my budget. But finally, after convincing myself that this is the one for me, I decided to get it. A Christmas gift for years of hard work and patience.

And so, the long wait is over and I have my own new phone. Hurrah! πŸ˜€

    the phone is nice but how can i install the PC sync program… the CD provided is so small?

    hi LC,

    the cd fits with any CD rom don’t worry. PC synch enables me to download the files saved in my phone.

    what i did to have music files in my phone was saved them directly into my microSD card. I’ve created folder named “Music” then save all my MP3 songs there. so even if i don’t install the software, i could access my music files using a card reader or just connect the phone USB cable to my computer.

    hi chocoholic,

    sorry for the late reply. it doesn’t have a blue. you could only transfer file using USB cable.

    hi joy,
    bili ko this december lang.
    nice yung features ng phone kc love ko download ng mp3s.. kaso.. downloaded ko na pc sync pero d parin ako makapag connect sa pc..

    “check connection” sa phone ang display..
    “USB cable connected. Pls select PC Sync on your phone” naman sa pc

    samantalang naka select na ako pc sync sa phone ko..

    kakainis! ask ko nga ito sa globe mismo.. 😦

    pero kung may suggestion ka.. happy to hear it.. πŸ™‚

    thank u thank u!!

    hi flo,

    * nainstall na ba sa pc mo yung software?
    * nag-alert ba sa cp mo na connected na siya?

    an alternative for saving MP3 is to have a card reader that would directly save your songs to your microSD memory card. ganun na lang ang ginagawa ko at mas mabilis pa ang pag transfer ng files. para kahit di ko na install yung installer ng myphone pwede akong magtransfer ng files from any computer basta meron akong microSD card reader.

    thank you sa pag-visit! πŸ™‚

    @me ann, di ko sure eh. wala pa akong naririnig na nakapagpaopenline. try mo muna ask sa mga cell shops kung pede bago ka bumili. per so far, ang alam ko pang globe pa lang talaga.
