I started with the bag phone, magnetic antenna, roaming... The brick. Then small, front pocket flip phones. "Beam me up Scotty, there is no intelligent life on this planet". I keep the phones until they are no longer supported. Dunk them in water (Mt Dew once) but 5 yr life span is short for me. It's happening again. My phone won't work after Jan 1st. They told me thus last yr but it got delayed. I am told my phone will not work after midnight the 31st of Dec. plus I can no longer buy a basic phone, get $50 back and done.. Phones from $5-60 a month. (Maybe more) The IPhone 7 32gbis $5 a month. Moving to IPhone 8 64gb is $15 a month. Gor person mainly using the phone to talk, text, maybe gps, start trying some apps as I have 8 gb wifi a month.. IS the 8 worth 3x the money? I will be buying two. I liked the front pocket without looking like I was happy to see someone of the thin phones.
