Started with NEC e616

In March 2004 I became a 3G user when I switched from Vodafone (Sweden) to 3 (Sweden) and signed up for a 3Fri 150 subscription.

While I learned a lot and found the e616 useful I was not quite happy. As most 3 users have learned their network was not exactly of a good quality. In short: cheap and shitty. Even so that was OK because I knew that beforehand.

What disappointed me most was the lousy MP3-player in the NEC e616. First of all it could not manage play lists. That is, it could only play one tune at a time. I found a simple playlist editor made by a user. But it was complicated to manage. Furthermore, the volume on the NEC e616 was very low so it was difficult to hear anything in noicy environments.

Around October I decided to give up the e616 when the calendar refused to accept more than 200 entries (stupid). I looked for a better solution and then the Motorola A1000 was released.
