I wish I could remember the exact date I got this phone. I know for certain that it's been at least 8 years. It's possible that I've used it for a year or 2 more than that. It still works. It's been soaked in a canoe, dropped, sat on in my back pocket over and over, and dropped in the snow. I could send and receive texts, make and receive phone calls, and it held a charge for up to 3 days. No camera. No frills.
I kept thinking that when it died, then I'd get a new phone. It never died. I finally decided it was time to catch up with technology and get a smart phone. The phone is quite smart, but it makes me feel dumb. I need a phone tutor. Farewell my old friend, Nokia.
