Just got my new toy :D

* Question: does Wataniya telecom. offer the micro-sim for voice/data, if yes. whats the procedure to get one and will it replace my current sim or i can use them both “closing one and runnin the other”

* i’ve sent an e-mail to the support dep. in wataniya few days ago asking the same Q above and when they finally replied all i got is this:

“Dear Valuable Customer,

Thank you for contacting us and giving us opportunity to serve you as we are more than willing to address your questions that you may have.

(We would like to ask you to visit the nearest Wataniya Branch to complete your request)

We hope the addresses your query.”

this wasn’t an automated reply but the “visit the branch” way they use to avoid answering any question really sucks.


technology and human manners


I guess you all know how technology has improved our way of living and saved our time , but sill some people don’t know how to handle it and mis-use it , and they lake the etiquette of having this technology .

Like when you go to the bank all dress up, you have waiting for your turn and by the time you set down the bank teller answers a customer on phone, how rude is that.  And when you go the co-op to get your thing and while you’re standing in line for the cashier, you don’t wanna hear the whole conversation of a woman talking to her mother about some cheese cake recipe, or another woman shouting at her kids at home to behave. I mean in public places keep your calls short this will save you a lot on your mobile bill next month .

Another mobile service that is so important. It’s the (waiting) ! ,, when you get in the middle of your conversation and you are about to make your point .. your friend on the other line simply picks the other call leaving you hanging  there!! By the time her gets to you .. you forgot what was it that your were talking about !.. personally I prefer not to have this service! Because some people just keeps on calling you if you had other line and annoy you till you answer them !

As for instant messaging,, I find people telling me you ignore us ,, your nose is up in the air ! but they have no idea that I might be having better things to do then waste my time chatting .

Finally I think that we should set a new rules of human manners to prevent the awkward situations and not to be take away by this huge inventions every day

Dr. Martin Cooper with one of the first made mobile phones

Ever wondered who was the inventor of mobile phones? It was Dr. Martin Cooper in 1973. The 1st mobile phone call ever was while walking in the streets of NY with a journalist as a witness. The funny thing is that Dr. Martin – worked for Motorolla- made his first calls to his rivals in Bell Labs and Joel Engel!
