Just found found a Danish sim card which will soon be deactivated.

Send me one of these old-fashioned texts. :D
I will receive them on an old Nokia phone (Nokia 3210).
I might post them here also. :)
(Also, feel free to send silent messages or to try to intercept messages if you have SS7 access. [Which you probably always wanted to do if you have access.)
"Hi Joshua greets from Suffolk, England from a 2008? era ac"
"*Blackberry device - Alex (@vfrmedia)"
Hi Alex o/
I do know that Suffolk is in England. :)
Have a good evening.
"Adding US as country of origin... ;) -- @luzifer"
Acutually, you're 2nd. :)
@DC7IA emoji, I suspect (these Chinese-style ones…)
@DC7IA My guess is ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
@DC7IA ooooh lemme try something cool
@DC7IA ah dang someone else did it already :D
@noiob Just send something else, if you like. I will post it anonymously (as I don't know who sent it :D)
@DC7IA it was just the picture message thing, I always found that fun
@DC7IA oh dang, even my N-Gage still supports it, but the number of pictures has been greatly reduced
@DC7IA sent from this beauty that for some reason still kept the time without a battery for months… or it got a time signal from the network? is that a thing?
@noiob Yes, the networks transmit the time to the phone. :)
@DC7IA wow, how does one send those images?
@daniel_bohrer I've got no clue.
@DC7IA Thinking while seeing that photo: "How the fuck is that thing still alive while smartphones are dying after 1-2 years?!?" 😄
@luzifer It will never die, only the charger and the battery will. :)
(And I can still get replacements, even new batteries.)
Sure, some of my old devices do have a new purpose as picture frame (Nexus 7) or to forward SMS sent to them but they are quite stationary and for me don't really count as smartphones anymore…
My old smartphone also had some problems with it's battery, but I used it almost only for messaging, so I kept charging...
This year it got revived again and still: If I don't use it often, the now 8 year old battery (bought the phone/battery in 2011) still does it's job for around 3 days 🙂
@DC7IA Damn… xD
@DC7IA BTW this is the Blackberry, its somewhat battle scared and not the best build quality (I fat fingered the first text as well as the keys are quite small)
There are also quite a few places called Suffolk in the USA including an entire "Suffolk County", which keeps turning up when I do searches for transport related stuff (although in the case of my text I expect the +447********* number might have been a giveaway as to correct location 😉 )
@vfrmedia Yeah, I know most European (+ UK :p) country codes.
@DC7IA Waren fix irgendwelche fancy Emojis. ^^
