Same here. An old Motorola. I keep finding batteries on line for it. I don't want a smart phone. This one is just fine. If it aint broke, don't fix it. : )
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.

My wife is Indonesian. Asian people do things differently, and when we were getting dumplings in east LA she saw a very asian cell phone store. This guy is off the hook and I tell everyone to use him.

Our only requirement is that it be unlocked, so when you travel to a foreign country you buy their sim card and you can use your phone but with a local number in that country. In Indoensia, for like $10 you get a 1,000 minutes or something. So that cancels out Verizon.

The guy I go to gives the following deal: you do a 2 year contract. He reimburses you the $35 set up fee new customers pay. You get a free phone. You have to have at least a $49 plan (we have a family plan, two phones, $80 1,000 minutes plus free weekends and family). If you don't want a new phone, he pays you $50.

I lost my phone, but we weren't due to get a free phone for 3 months. So I paid for the new phone ($180) and when we were able, he simply paid my money back to me.

the lesson I learned: Don't go to the very franchisy looking stores: find a hole in the wall family operated one. they give the best/ great deal. Every 2 years we get new phones, and it costs us nothing.

Verizon has the most coverage of all the companies. I'm with Verizon. But have been for so long, I'm not on a contract anymore.
35 bucks a month. But I don't think you can get that plan anymore. I'm grandfathered in. lol. Same phone for about 5 years now.


Mine is the same way....had this deal for about 8 years now and its way less than the current plans they offer.

i've had a verizon cell phone plan (with the same phone number) for 10 years, went through many phones...broke my LG versa a couple years ago teaching (of all places), too cheap to replace it so i use an old samsung alias the thing is legitimately built to last...i'm afraid to upgrade to a smart phone like my family and friends keep encouraging, too clumsy...i can drop this samsung and nothing happens, drop one of those nifty iphones or droids, you're fucked


The dropping thing is the one idea that keeps me from getting a smartphone. But, the all-in-one feature is really pullin at me. I have two young'ins which i would love to capture more video and pics of without looking like I run a small tech biz out of the trunk of my car.
The best phone i ever had was a audiovox. Wasn't a flip phone and had to pull the antenna up, but it never dropped a call and worked flawlessly.....then verizion went digital. It was analog.

Motorola Cliq2 3G. T-mobile. $79.99 unlimited text, web, and minutes. Great deal. Awesome phone. Tmobile is lacking lately though. At&t and verizon way better service right now, sprint sucks. But Tmobile will soon be At&t and plans will be grandfathered in. By the way, I drop my phone all the time and so does my wife. They are made with gorilla glass and don't break as easy as you think.

Like Chris Rock said. Two things that used to be free....Ringtones + water. Now we pay for both of these. Silly Americans !!
