Best phone I ever used. Compact and still easy for a guy to keep hold of. Wasn't dainty. And wasn't overly large as most newer phones seem to be. I'd like to see this phone resurrected and put back into mainstream production. Maybe update it wi...

Bought mine in Feb 16 still working and not a scratch; I want an excuse to get a new phone but this thing just keeps going. It has run out of memory for new apps because they will not use the SD card so sadly it will go soon.
