mig33, zigzag5, my online life in the beginning..


Most of the people will probably feel boring what is I’m going to write today, It’s like a flashback from my memory, related to mig33.



Mig33 is a mobile community launched at 2005. It got huge adoption soon after its release for some of its creative services like free SMS, Call and Credit on friend invitation & most addictive chatroom.  On 2006, Bangladeshi Mobile operator Grameenphone introduced mobile internet service. Multimedia handset became people’s choice and in that flow mig33 was able to create some loyal user base from Bangladesh.  I was one of them. Though most of the people registered on mig33 from friend’s invitation, I didn’t receive any invitation from my friend. My registration was quite natural. My first handset was a Siemens AX72 (Which I still use!). After some internet settings modification, I was able to download Java (.jar) file for first time at one night. My second java application that I’ve downloaded on my mobile was mig33 (Of course first app was Opera Mini!) It was first year of my Higher Secondary Study; I’ve heard about mig33 from my classmate, his father was working on Saudi Arab. He was able to make free call from mig33 to him. It interested me a lot which probably resulted in downloading mig33. The mig33 ID registered was zigzag5. On an exam hall, a madam was asking us to seat on benches on zigzagly. That was the first time, I’ve heard word zigzag, and liked it very much. That’s the reason probably I went for zigzag5 (zigzag was already registered). At first I used to invite all the SIM’s around me and save some mig33 credit. Later I somehow liked that service and started sending Email’s on mig33. That time there were not too many users who would be interested to write mig33. All my emails are answered quickly by some Customer Care managers of mig33 initialed as JP, or PH or M. After using mig33 few days, Someday I suddenly entered on a Chatroom named Sylhet (Named after my hometown) and got kicked out of it almost instantly. I felt much insulted and looked for way to prevent it. Later each time I entered on that room, I was almost all time got kicked out soon enough. I also visited several other rooms. That time mig33 released its updated version 3. One day, I was entered on a room Russia and found that a person with a Special ID whose color was different that other user and he can kick other user instantly without starting a vote. I felt interested and searched a lot to find out how that’s possible. After few days,  A user close to an admin was able to let me know that It’s a status called as Admin (Chatroom Moderator) and also able to find out that there are find there are several Bangladeshi admins also, rony002, tareq263, stalin_dark, sheikh_mahmud etc.. That’s where my real interest begins. I started sending emails on mig33 about it, and how to become an admin. Mig33 replied an email asking some basic questions about me. I filled up and replied. Hopefully waiting I didn’t get any reply. I was quite hopeless as the weeks turned. At last I asked Customer Care manager JP to add me on mig33. I didn’t even know about her full name! After 2/3days, I’ve got friend request from an user ID named Janyieee. I thought it’s a girl from somewhere else, accepted friend request. Later one day I discovered that ID online, knocked her on chatting. She explained that she is customer care manager who was replying most of the emails for long time. I was quite shocked. She also explained that she doesn’t have have authorities to appoint admin, but she will let mig33 team know about me. Then, again long boring period of waiting. I almost lost hope.  Oneday, I entered on Chatroom Sylhet again, and surprising discovered my id is tagged as Admin. That was a huge shock for me. You can imagine your early life achievements which will always make you feel something special.

My mig33 life was accelerated by that event. It made me popular somehow, made me reach so many good and bad people around. Those are something like large scrapbook of memories which will take hours to write down. I’m guessing that will make you bored only, so skipping that part. But some good friends, without writing about them my post will remain incomplete. Frozen_mass, a 27 years aged big brother like friend who have always supported me no matter how much pain I’m having or he himself his. Princess_of_rain, my ex-girlfriend, who with her care and love taught me to be more human.  Jishz/timephonic & Kidas, who are like small brothers I never have.  Umma_, Medical student that time and now a doctor, who is probably the reason for my medical life.  Funkynat, a middle aged lady from France, always having tough time with love but yet her care touching me half away across the globe. Pretheela, a girl from a conservative family, who was my first mig33 female friend. Shuvra6x, a young boy who still never forget to send greetings on special occasions.  And so many, who have still touched my life in so many ways.
I’ve given up hope on mig33 recent days. But still sometimes, I miss having old days, old friends..
