Fylde Coast Musings vs Cyprus Life – in pictures

Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas at the beginning of March 2004 and spent the next glorious 12 years in Limassol, Cyprus. Sadly, in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We now live on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea just across from Fleetwood. More places to discover and capture on camera!

“I really must get myself a Smart Phone…”

1 Comment

Yep, I think the time is coming close when I will have to forego the use of my Nokia 6111 and turn to one of the more modern smart phones….

The trouble is, I quite like my little pink Nokia and it’s stood me in good stead for a number of years. Before getting it, I used to change my phone around the beginning of every year but this one takes some good photos which I can upload from the USB connection quite easily. Plus, I do really only use my phone to text or actually make “phone calls” – I know, it’s not really cool any more to simply phone your friends!

So, I’m open to suggestions – BUT, I don’t want any Qwerty keyboards so you can stuff your Blackberry’s as the keys are too damn small and I was taught to touch type on a full sized keyboard so they’re just too much like hard work!

I want to be able to Twitter and maybe to access Facebook or Flickr to share photos as I find ’em. I want a touch screen mobile and my eyes aren’t what they used to be so it has to be easy to read 🙂

Remember folks, I’m in Cyprus so don’t come along with any tri-band nonsense that won’t work on my sunny but compact Mediterranean island, which has a very limited monopoly of phone signal providers. I don’t want to end up like this with my Blackberry not working.

One other small thing I forgot to mention – the PRICE. I want to pay no more than €80.00 including postage and packing. Must be either sim free or unlocked. I bought my last phone on eBay UK.

One thought on ““I really must get myself a Smart Phone…”

  1. I bought 2 phones from UK using ebay. Price range was different, but still I think you should be able to find a phone at a very reasonable price (including shipping).
    Take a look at “ecell global” shop on ebay uk: http://stores.ebay.co.uk/E-Cell-Global?_rdc=1 as they are good and ship to Cyprus.
