So, I apparently have a new phone. It’s apparently an HTC Explorer. It apparently runs on the 3 network, and apparently the contract is for 12-months and is on the FlexiFix 25 plan.
It’s all apparently because I wasn’t the one who actually ordered it. Three decided it would be a good idea for their telesales division to ring my mother to inform her of this deal whereby anyone she recommends to Three will earn that person and herself a month free. So she got a new phone/SIM/contract in the hopes that either I would take it and take on the contract, or my sister would take it to replace one of the many phones she’s gone through and “broken”. (Also, something about my sister being embarrassed to tell her friends she has a Tesco Mobile 089 number)
One thing I’m still struggling with is adapting to all the new ringtones and notifications. Gone are the monotone series of beeps that were the only option with my old Nokia 1101. And in their place I put several of the sounds from Team Fortress 2.
So, my ringtone:
My message alert tone:
And my e-mail alert tone:
Sometimes I hear them and have to spend a while figuring out why they’re playing, and then try and remember which is which... Bonus points if you know what sound bites they are.
