Wow! It has been YEARS since I priced HT's. I've been wanting to purchase one for EDC (preferably with AA power) but have been concerned over the cost. I purchased one since I am no longer concerned about dunking it in the water and destroying a very expensive piece of hardware.

Lost my sprint cell that didnt work at house but did in town....got a verizon that gets 2 bars crystal clear at house.

Network matters too apparently on 'relying' on a phone,good thing we lost other I guess.

Had to laugh,to me a phone is JUST a phone,dont want it to do anything else. So guy sells me this 2006 motorola E815 flip for 20 bucks,keeps saying 'this is a really good phone'....turns out it was verizon top dog at the time and dang but what a great performing PHONE,happy camper here.

I dont want to pay a fortune monthly...80 dollars a year for 2000 minutes at pageplus cellular on verizon network,thats a phone for us.
