Nicole's first phone was bought on her own and was no more than a little less than 100 dollars. The first phone would be the first risk Nicole would take in the first war in reaching out to others as her mother could read her messages online. Believing that her mother was bluffing, she sent out distress signals anyway.
There are few photos of this phone in use and it still not clear of what was happening in these photos. Deciphers may be made later.
