New cell phone story.
« on: October 11, 2017, 12:28:44 PM »
Last night I had to go to AT&T as my wife's cell phone quit working. While we were there I decided I needed a new phone as I had the old one for a while. We got a deal on Samsung S8, buy 1 got 1 free! The tech was trying to get my contacts out of the old phone, with no success. As he was looking through my phone he said: "Holy S**t, you have the Blockbuster app on this thing!". That's how long I had the phone!

Perhaps you should donate it to the Smithsonion, Harry....

When I got my first smart phone I ported from a Motorola Razr.  They hadn't seen one of those on a new customer before.  We just take care of our toys better.   ;D

Anything can last forever if you take care of it...kinda like all the other phones we have.
