Call me a super-laggard when it comes to adopting new technology, but I had a Nokia 6030 for 7.5 years until I recently dropped it for the millionth time. The phone still worked great except the phone would no longer charge the battery.
So I pulled a slightly upgraded “new” Nokia 2G phone that I had in the closet (just in case) and will use that until all of the 2G network stuff has been converted.
When 2G goes away (soon I hear) I’ll be looking for a 3G non-smartphone. That should tide me over for awhile, at least I hope.
