Discussion

I just got a new mobile phone, and let me tell you, it was hard to choose one. There were so many options and features that I couldn’t figure out how to narrow it down. I just told the salesperson to give me the best phone available and I ended up with the NEC 525, which is a world phone, meaning that it will work in any country. It has a 2x zoom camera, a big color screen, calendar, email, web browsing and nice gaming features. If you’re in need of a new phone, I recommend it!
Have a great week!
Your American Friend,
John
