    Swapping modules with others is the silliest thing I have ever heard. This phone will fail and it will fail hard in developed countries.

    I don't know why you would want to play with such small parts altho people built heathkit tvs at one time soldiering in all the parts. Are you extendi9ng microsofts windows 9 idea and using the phones as servers? Not for anyone but the very elite technical people. Phones are too complex now and many features are unused.

  9. No. It's a certainty.
