How Much Did You Buy Your First Sim Card. by ilosiwaju: 3:08pm On Mar 25, 2010
I often hear stuffs like : "i bought my sim for 40k", "i bought my sim before gsm became popular". I'll go first, i bought mine around 2004 during a V-mobile promo.
How much? N300.

I bought my econet line 35k while my mtn sim 15k.

Unfortunately, because of network jam with mtn service. I abandon my line for three months and someone call my econet line later then and tell me that my mtn line when call is being answer by another man. When I call mtn customer care, they told me that because I have left my sim for long without using it that it has been blocked. Can you imagine.
That was how I lost that my unique mtn number.

Sendo(esp. the yellow one from mtn)
Sagem
Alcatel(orange light)
Samsung True i
Samsung Free i
Ericsson T30
