First, I need some help. It would seem that your ordinary (read free with contract) cell phones do not handle extreme temperatures, dirt, shock or excess water very well. As a coincidence, I find myself in extreme temperatures (more often cold than warm), wet and dirty, as well as dropping things a lot.
And then I go to work and it's not so bad.
What I need help with is finding a good phone. And by good I mean a phone that, when I slip on the ice, can be dropped on concrete, land in a mud puddle, and then be washed off in the sink. After all that, I want it to work just like new. I do not need a camera, nor do I need access to the interwebz. I detest text messaging on general principal. Incoming and outgoing calls. Caller ID would be nice.
Where is that phone? Anybody? Anybody?
By the way I am on Sprint now, but in a few months I won't be married to them anymore.
I sat down to polish up an publish more on the Sistema Saga, and will today. However, I checked my blog roll, and just had to comment on this: If you can't beat 'em, join 'em
Matt G has a plan, and I like it!
I also went on a Wiki safari after reading Tam's blog. From Xenu to Southpark, I lost an hour of my life I'll never get back.
So, now I'm off to do some Valentine duties, because I don't have time now to polish the Sistema post.
Back this afternoon.
