Got a new cell phone today.

Go here to see it

I got this new phone today as my trustee Nokia stopped working after being dropped a lot over the last 2 years. I never seem to have much luck with Motorola's, as they always seem to break after 3 months, so there was a hint of reluctance to go ahead and get this one. Thing is that this little beauty has a lot of good features and if it breaks I have insurance. Just hope it doesn't break first time I drop it.

I also just changed phones two weeks ago. After 5 years (yes, you read that right) I decided to trade in my trusty, much-dropped 5110 for a Nokia 6020. Looks businesslike rather than trendy, good keypad for text messaging, camera, video, etc but no Bluetooth. I like it, and it's intuitive as Nokias generally are. Dunno if it will last me another five years, but you can't go TOO wrong with a Nokia.

Yes I agree.... This one has bluetooth and camera etc which is good. it will also bluetooth work on all 05 and newer BMW's so if and when I get a new car....

This "look" comes in two models -- the 6020, which is what I have (with the camera but no Bluetooth), and the 6021 (Bluetooth, but no camera!) That combination really irked me, I wanted to futureproof, but nothing else Nokia had appealed to me. Either too trendy (next year's old-look), too impractical (small buttons), too ugly (like a cheap toy or a teenager's make-up kit). So as much as I'd have loved Bluetooth, I picked the camera, which I've already found useful. Other alternative was the Sharp GX15/17, I can forgive the smallish buttons, but the battery life is known to be pretty short.

Dad says "His first Motorola "brick like mobile" cost $2400 in the 1980's. We still have it though of course we have moved on to more modern technology now . It was worth it's weight in gold in those days!

Ah yes, the old Motorola..... Didn't Paul Dudding have one too?
