They are the firmware versions.
The version number listed is the last 3 digits of the full PDA firmware code. (PDA is the actual android firmware version, Modem is the signal radio version and CSC is the country code version.)
For example, NB7 is N9005XXUENB7.
N9005 = the device, XXUE = the Bootloader version, N = 2014, B = Februari, 7 = revision 7.
As such, MJ5 = M = 2013, J = Oktober, 5 = Revision 5.
You can find out which one you have by dialing *#1234# and looking at the AP.
You'll also find people mentioning codes like DBT, PHN, XEF. These are the CSC country codes. (For instance, DBT is Germany Unbranded)

So, it's a little difficult to get the sim card out (there are tricks, and I know how to do it now, but springload would've been much better); luckily, sdcard has a lot to pull on.
Hm, now that you mention it.. I hadn't noticed! (Strange, because I usually spend 3/5 times looking for the MicroSD after the springload projects it halfway across the room..) I guess there are some advantages to being a woman. Mainly, nails.

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.
The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.
