For the older amongst us

I am referring to cellphones.

This may be of particular interest to those, in London, who travel by public transport or who often find themselves in noisy places.

My wife and I have had trouble with cellphones. She won’t admit to it but often when I ring her, it rings and rings in her handbag, and I end up talking to her voicemail service!

With me, if I am (overground) in the underground trains, there is so much noice, I find it difficult to hear the other person speak.

So I took a trip to Brent Cross to our friendly Carphone Warehouse chappie, and told him of our problems. He thought for a minute and then suggested the Nokia 6100

Nokia 6100 cellphone

Ours are in English, of course!

Anyway on the strength of what we were told, and the fact that we could change them within two weeks if we didn’t like them, we bought two.

Although we could buy tops and keypads of different colours to differentiate them, we chose to identify them with dynotape on the back.

And yes, we can both hear the phone ringing. Pam’s within the dark and murky depths of her handbag, and mine in a little Vega holster on my belt. In addition to this, I can hear people speaking to me over it in the noisiest of places.

Apart from that it is a small, thin, light and stylish phone (75 grams) but the battery really does last quite a few days.

One nice little thing that I like it, if you tap the on/off button quickly, it opens up the “Profiles” page where you can set it to normal, noise conditions, meetings, or silent mode. This saves a lot of time and if you are inside and change it from noisy to normal you end up annoying far fewer people.

And the phone is fairly intuitive to a 66 year old geezer…

    I should have added that these are not cheap. If you buy them not connected to a service provider as I always do, then the cost is £100 each. However, if you buy them through your service provider and they have them for sale, they are considerably cheaper.Andrew
