getting a good laugh

I got a good laugh when someone I knew was complaining about how his mobile was not functioning. At the first few times, we both thought that the malfunction was due to the mobile handset being that of old age and how things can become wary over time, especially when it comes to technology.

We drove into a repair shop and to our surprise, we got told that the network was down for the last 30 minutes or so. And this was around 8:15pm or 8:10pm. His mobile was using an Oman Mobile SIM card whilst I'm a Nawras fan.

I had a good laugh because I was always getting beat down about how Nawras is this or that and how it's worth nothing since it's still new. Well, there you go.

The odds have been claimed and I rest my case.

Yesterday the network was very very very bad since they announced that tomorrow is the first day of Ramadhan, and the network remained bad till 12am or 1am I guess. That was due to the big amount of phone calls made at that period and big amount of text messages sent.

Yesterday I wanted to ask you on MSN if you're facing the same problem since you use Nawras, but I totally forgot. I suppose the same problem was with Nawras, because a9lan Nawras & Oman Mobile use the same network!

sorry, Amjad..

but thats where you're wrong. Nawras - at least on my part, had no problem whatsoever.

I could make and receive calls, send and receive texts with no obstacles.
