How do you save your phone book contacts?
Amobile phone is now a common item owned by a vast majority of Nigerians and the world at large. Every time we meet people we tend to update our phone book. There are some, however, who will rather memorise a phone number than save it.
This brings us to the question how do you save contact on your phone? Do you use full name (example Bamas Victoria) or use a description (example Bamas corper, Bamas Dailytrust, Bamas MassCom)?
WEEKEND conducted ducted a vox pop and here is s what people have to say:
Oluwatosin Taiwo, wo, a civil engineer, said “I save a phone number the way I can easily remember mber the person, it can be by nickname, by event, or by where I know the he person or even the he relationship between n us.”
Paul Archibong, a nurse, says all the contacts in his phone book are saved with full name and title. “I use a person’s full names and title like Mr, Miss, Chief, Aunty because it’s easier for me to remember than nicknames,” he explained. Archibong noted that the use of title started as a result of his phone type that had a provision for title.
John Urhude, just like Achibong, says, “I save their full names.”
But for Adediji Bunmi, “In this world and age, nobody cares about surnames just your first name or an easy to remember name and description. When you have up to five different Henry’s in your Phone book, how do you differentiate them? You use a description because you cannot know the surname of everybody.”
Samson Ibiwoye says “I think most of us actually use words with which we can easily remember a person. I have many names saved with descriptions in my phonebook. I most often use the event that brought us together as the description, although I don’t use any description that has a negative tag to it.”
