Four mobile networks, well over 36 million subscribers and a few ardent cellphone fanatics help make this place of the best threads on Esato.

    Vodacom/Vodafone
    MTN
    Cell C

Here are some of the people that bother to post here:

GUCCI.011 aka The Golden Child...One of the youngest members of the thread he's dedicated Nokia S60 fan but not quite a zealot. If he's not on his S60 phone you find him listening to some of the freshest hiphop beats or on his PlayStation. Currently he's in his final year of high school and is hoping to study economics at either Wits University or the University of Jozi next year.


786KBR: Honestly I don't know what this chap does, one thing I know is that he is somehow linked to Vodacom and so if you need any advice on deals for that network he is the chap to ask.

He's been a phone fanatic since he got his first smartphone the Nokia 6600 but has since moved on to bigger beasts,His present phones are the Nokia E90 Communicator and the iPhone 3G 8GB.

Mario enjoys flying,hunting,traveling,diving,dog training playing, he also happens to be a qualified radio technician.

Kryptik aka da krypsta: Is 39 year-old teacher in PE who loves wap and his Symbian apps. He was one of the original gang of three who ensured that this thread is always flaming hot.


The Wirelessmonkey: RIP:( An occasional poster who describes himself as a monkey about town. A dedicated and Apple fiend he was the bloke that got me hooked on SE in 2002 when he ran into the office to show off his P800 prototype. Sadly he past away recently after a long and valiant battle with cancer.

Here's one of the best pics sent to me by one of our newest members, francoislr taken with his W900. Mr Le Roux works for a computer company and also dabbles in music when he's not playing with his phone and chatting up a storm on mxit.

@ bobafett some people probably still use \\\\\\ phones but getting them second-hand is an arduous task. I was looking for a T39 which is a rarity on the local market. And yes, I do speak Afrikaans...just one of three languages I speak.

@bobafett. Yeah I'll be looking for it. The most talked about phone is probably the Motorola Razr V3, we should be getting it either next month or in the new year. I'm partial to the K700 should I buy a new phone within the next 6 months.

@brix25: I've been a little wary of Moto. In recent times, their battery performance has been 'legendary', esp d low end phones. Hope its different on this one.
