Re: Why do you put up with so much BS?
"Maybe one day, when all this BS is sorted out, I can finally upgrade from my perfectly useful and adequate 'dumbphone'. "
I'm similar, but not quite as much of a stuckist :-)
I love my android tablet, but there is a maintenance requirement that I have no desire to deal with on my phone.
My phone is an old symbian Nokia E63 which I don't intend to replace until it dies (at which point I'll be looking for another E63)
P.S. The E63 has ssh/putty, a camera, and a decent web browser by the still supported UC browser.
Not bad for a phone that came from 'the back of my brothers sock draw', and costs 2p per text, 3p per min voice, 1p a meg data (with 300mb free for a month when you top up £5) and no monthly fees!
