I thought the SMS messages were stored on the phone instead of the SIM.  My
dad gave me the Nokia 6103b I am currently using after he upgraded to a
newer Samsung phone.  The Nokia 6103b still contained my dad’s SMS messages
even though I was using the phone with my SIM.  Maybe some phones store the
SMS messages on the phone while others store them on the SIM?

“Is that some fscking hardware in your pants, or are you just happy to see
“Can you (touch|finger|mount|grep|unzip|fsck) me with that hardware in your
pants?” :D

I wish. :P
