Things We Went Through Using Phones 2005-2011 Throwback by ponti93(m): 9:26am On Sep 12
*THROWBACK 2005-2011

*They will never know the struggle we went through with:*

*1. getjar.. Looking for a means to download 2go*

*2. Waptrick (the original waptrick) not this wapdam or whatever they call it now.*

*3. Unknowingly downloading a Symbian game into your java phone.*

*4. Having to load google page by page.*

*5. Downloading ringtones. Not songs oh...Ring tones. Chai I did explores then o*

*6. Downloading wallpapers and themes...Lwkm. Everybody had Michael Jackson but I preferred Chris Brown.*

*7. Downloading one song...Just one song, and that song will destroy your phone with virus. That's how I spoilt my Nokia 2700*

*8. Sefan.ru and Gambit.....Lwkm.*

*9. You were a big boy (real big boy) if you could use a whole 1mb to download 1 game...1mb was like 1 terabyte then.*

*10. Choosing screen size before you download anything. Lol. Not like now that all applications adjust themselves to your phone. All this indomie generation will not understand these things*

*11. Exhausting your data before your download completes. Just forget it. Your account balance is 0.00naria..*

*12. There was one time MTN was advertising games that could be downloaded with N200. I called MTN and told them I wanted to download the game. The lady that picked up told me that I should wait for the game to land in my phone. N200 was deducted....many years after and I am still waiting for the game.��*

*copied from a Facebook post
What else did u go through

When you're done downloading a game of 1MB from those stupid sites, while opening it says application error.
I enjoyed playing Bluetooth multiplayer games, I played car racing and Pro Evolution Soccer with friends, our class even host tournament sef.
Now, someone cannot play physical multiplayer games via Bluetooth or WiFi on Android, only playing with a ghost online which requires data.
Then, games were free, now someone has to buy it with real money or be suffocated with ads while playing.
I nr even know which days better pass between then and now.

Those were the days of free browsing and memory card was a big deal then; in fact somebody with 50 MB memory card is seen as a bigger boy.

cheesy grin indeed those were days worth remembering but not worth going back to because I can remember clearly when one "big bros" for my street bpught d 1st tecno tab (something D5 or so sha) and he was running the 2go android version and I begged him just to let me have a glimpse (my brothers and I were still running it on java and forming big boy with N200 earpiece and 2GB memory card) but he sent me away like a dog...Now I am probably using a better android than his (who knows) with correct memory card of 32GB...How time flies

Damn, the days of using Sony Ericsson cheat.

The days of sharemobile.

Using Edge to download a game, just then, it gets to 99% and amazingly fails. grin grin

Tegos! grin grin

Downloading a game, just to discover it's not your screen size. grin , I started putting the size when downloading, Real Football 2005.jar 128 X128, 320 X 240 (for Motorola Rzr V3i).

Flashing Nokia 2700C flashing times embarassed

Building themes for myself and friends in "nth" format via collection of pictures. cheesy grin

The days of Opera Mini. Opera 2.2, 4.1, 5.0, 5.1

Good 'ol days.

How time flies!!

RF2010 nearly turn me mad person that year! We use am gamble tire. Each bet na 2-legged affair (final result na aggregate of both legs) ; and this is to allow a fair chance cos the player who hosts has a upper hand than the one who joins (hin own game go dey lag like crazy). So u gas score as many goals as possible when you host cos u no know how many your opponent go sama u when e reach hin own turn.

Also, I been shine 4 my school that year as per say na me be the only guru wey sabi the trick to send game/app on java. And na mumu trick! If u use uc web download app, e no go install straight. E go just download like corrupt file and person gas do some renaming trick (from _jar to .jar) So if new handler opera or uc don commot, me go just download am keep. And if i wan help any baga do cheat, i go just collect e phone, do abracadabra to complete the task, then collect my own shine (and sometimes mullah) straight up!

Times of prov file, blue ftp, bolt (the only browser wey boiz fit use watch online videos back then).

Boiz sabi mtn ip & proxy like they DoB that time.

I even get one mumu policy back then sey i nor dey ever collect mp3 or video thru bluetooth; i must download am myself. And it wasnt so hard to uphold as FB tweak constant like maryJ for new afrika shrine. When my mates were having songs in tens, I had them in hundreds! YMCMB tracks alone were 100+ (bless zawaringo.com)

I was so hot 'cyberly' that there was a gang up against me. Even my close pal beef me (sha I hack the mumu facebook acc as punishment for hin offence) Lol

Chai! Memories wey sweet pass honey!!

Allah, if i begin word all my experience right here, a whole week nor go reach.

Back then, video streaming was impossible before S60v3 came to our rescue.

Having a phone that support 3G is like having an Iphone.

With our 2G, we were happy.

Who knows Facebook, na Opera Community

100MB was 1k Naira for 30 days.

Gone were those days...
I can still recall i had three spare batteries always charged.

Top games then: Prince of persia Real Football 2007 3D Brothers in Arms, earned in blood. Splinter Cell. Mission Impossible. Contra.

You'd been seen as a god if you had those games then.
