I have had this cell phone, for over 5 years, and it is the first cell phone I have owned that didn't die on me, as soon as my two year contract was up, which I was always a bit suspicious about. How is it that cell phones conveniently die, just as your contract is ending? I swore that the carrier Gods lay down a smacketh, kerplow on all cell phones at the 23.5 month mark. That was, until I came across this phone. It has lasted five and a half YEARS! Seriously, people, let's break that down in cell phone years. It's like 204.5666 in people years, right?! LOL Sure, it doesn't have a slim physique; nor does it have a touch screen. However, what it does have is durability. Also, if you have this phone, you won't be forced into any ridiculous data packages, which to a person like me that only texts and makes calls is PRICELESS! I <3 my little (well, big) original V. :) If you have yours lying in a junk drawer, won't you give it another chance. Show your VX9800 some love.
