What it's like owning a BlackBerry in Nigeria?


...
el youm kent ga3d a7os fe Viigo 3al blackberry, (if u dont know Viigo: click here) oo i came across this article.. about a blackberry owner in Nigeria, writing about what it's like owning a BB in that part of the world.. interesting!




"About 8 years ago, we only had about one hundred thousand wired lines for all of us."

"In order to use a phone, we often had to wait in lines that could be as long as one thousand people."

"In 2006, BlackBerry was introduced to the Nigerian market."

"Here in Nigeria, a lack of access to information as well as a preoccupation with other aspects of life, meant BlackBerry landed here without making much of a scene."

"Zain began offering the service to their postpaid customers only but that has recently changed. They have included prepaid customers into their BlackBerry service."

"Here in Nigeria, not many people can afford a BlackBerry."

"The majority of mobile phone users here in Nigeria just want to talk."

"I met a lady few days ago. She uses a BlackBerry but she has never used the phone for anything other than making calls."

"You hardly see people with BlackBerry and when you are seen with one, you often get: "WOW! He uses BlackBerry, he must be big or something." That is what it feels like having a BlackBerry in Nigeria."

"I remember once a rumor that BlackBerry can scan for pregnancy when placed on the stomach of a pregnant woman."

"Most of the cities here are still on GPRS. EDGE and 3G are still trying to spring up."

"Since Zain has joined the queue I will have to check it out if they have better service than my network."

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=http://viagra.opuskali.ru]Viagra Super Active[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
