Lessons learned. - DIY if buying from Pertama.

It's the time of the year that I thought to myself, "My phone is boring".

I see new models, new design of mobile phone in the market (except for the iPhone, which Ithink is still revolutionary) thats cheaper and easy to get.

But then I look again at my phone, the Nokia N95 8GB which I bought more than a year ago, and thought to myself; this phone is still alright. Still function perfectly and still is a technologically advance mobile phone.

But it's still boring.

So, I went to the pit-hole of the con known as Pertama Kompleks to change the phones housing.
Just to make it feel like new.
The original housing has worn out that looking at it is like looking at a dismembered family member. You love them, but they still look hidious.

The housing they provided seems good enough. It looks almost original.......-ish.

Being Pertama, lo and behold, the messed up the installation.
Oh, a tip when buying anything from that pit-hole ; CHECK YOUR PURCHASES!
Good thing I did before I left the shop.
The mic on the phone stopped working when I tried calling me wife, so I complaint.
Good thing that the shop I went to is responsible enough to rectify the problem FOC.

But the workmanship done to the housing is still very, very poor.
Your dismembered family member might got a new face-job, but it feels different especially if he blinks with only one eye.

So, the moral of the story is;
If you are buying accessories at Pertama, you either assemble them youself, or get your friend(s) to do it for you.


  1. Pertama Complex handphone traders all suck !!!

  2. lesson from the story: DON'T BUY AT PERTAMA!

  3. yup, bought n-gage there long time ago
    it sucks!

  4. Handphone traders there seems to be shrinking little by little.
    Goog sign of smart consumerism, perhaps?
