Yet another one told another story. When he tried to insert his miniature SIM with another phone, the latter got fire! Thankfully, it did not explode!
And I my self have been thinking of this for quite some time. I too do have problems with this SIM handling in my phones.
Mobile and tablet phones are the craze of today's world. They all have a small key electronic embedded circuit marketed separately called the SIM. This part called the SIM stands for Subscriber Identification Module. It is the one that makes the telephone network companies market their telephone services separately from that of the phone manufacturers.
Smart phones are not inexpensive items. They are definitely expensive. True, their prices are not as high as the ones that came in the past when compared to the technological advancements that they offer now. They have also become a necessary evil for all now-a-days. But that necessity of the common man should not become a lure for exploitation. The smart phone companies should not make and market so many models in succession without ensuring their long term servicing requirements.
High competition is forcing these companies to ignore such basic factors. They come up with different models every now and then because today's young and affluent generation consider cell phones as a personal status projection gadget rather than a functional gadget. Hardly few use all the technological things packed in a smart phone. But for status, all need all technology, style and brand.
But any thing in excess and without moderation would soon become a thing of rejection or allergy later. Smart phones are no exception. High marketing strategies in a technology advancing scene might bring utter failures.
Incidences of some reputed smart phone batteries catching fire or exploding in the recent past are examples that only indicate the pressure under which smart phone technology designers are working. Perhaps their top management brass might be pushing them to the wall that they forget even basic common sense.
I think the top management people of all cell phone companies need to come out of their corporate pseudo shells and think and act like humans.
