This was my first phone ever. I was pretty young and I didn't know what an amazing phone was, so I had no idea if this phone was good. When my dad brought the box home and I opened it, I was really really excited - obviously you're going to be excited if you're getting your first phone, duh!
The phone was a flip top. There was a little screen at the front which I thought was cool, and I assumed you could see there if you had any messages, missed calls, etc. There was a little button on the right side at the top. I didn't know what it was for and I pressed it and the screen came flipping up really quickly and it made me drop the phone!
Setting up the phone was really easy and quick, it only took about 15 minutes before I could start using the phone. The instruction manual was very detailed and it explained everything well.
The phone itself is small, compact, and fits nicely in a jeans pocket. It's a really simple phone, isn't too complicated. There's no features like email, app store, or some special smartphone features.
This is quite a good phone for young people but a little too plain and simple for my liking.
After losing my previous phone to water damage (clumsy old me again) i was scouring the house for any old phone i could find, with no idea where it came from, i found the Nokia 6131 and thought its a bit of a brick but it will be good for now. so i popped my SIM card into the space under the battery, switched it on using the flat button an the right hand side of the phone, everything was fine, so i had a look through the menu and this is what i came across...
