Hey intrepid!
I'm almost in that same boat with you!

In town here we have a techy guy (with space in a store) who buy/sells/repairs phones, Ipods, etc.
I love my old Samsung (also about 5 yrs. old) and I love my cheap texting (pay-as-you-go) package, so....he is going to match me with an affordable phone and place my SIM card in it.
At least this way I keep a lot of the familiar, and only have to get used to the new phone itself! Oh, and it will be cheaper too, lol.

It's a thought, if you know anyone like that. (Could possibly even just replace your battery if he keeps tons of old parts/phones like my guy?)

Good luck!

I've been a fan of HTC for years. I had an Evo 4g, then a One M8 and now the M9. They have all been very reliable and durable. As long as you don't go with Apple, you should be fine.

Well if you make the leap to the smartphone, get a Samsung IMO.
Shoot I think they make a pretty good phone in general.


The one that just died was a Samsung. 4.5 years? That's pretty damn good.


Our Land line phone is over 20 years old and we don't even have to charge it for it to work:-)
Now That's Really damn good! Plus we expect another 20 years service out of it yet.
Sorry I just had to post that.
Regards, Iwinder



You old skinflint! I bet you've still got one of these eh?

Actually we have two of those in the picture above, My long gone Uncle and my dad took the two phones and chromed them then in the center were the number would be for your home, they put in a picture of my grandma and my grandpa and we still have those in the basement.

They will still function if plugged in Plus they are also lamps too and I kid you not.
If you want a pic or two to post on this thread just PM please.

LOL caught you napping Void.......you did not expect that reply eh?

I am torn about phones. I love them. I hate them. The smarter they get, the dumber the user gets. I barely talk to anyone on it so I basically pay to use it to kill time while waiting for stuff, taking a deuce, or reading the news. I take pictures of my cat once in a while along with some other things, but I hardly ever take the pics off the phone. I do find it quite useful for looking up values of things while out and about though. Most of the time I wish I was back in the simpler times of a rotary phone and a 25ft phone cord.
