    Id honestly love to replace my primary phone with something like this, in some ways. Less distractions and not a constant worry if it breaking and having to pay hundreds of dollars for replacement.

    Well buy one, it's cheap enough. Don't you still have an old feature phone lying around collecting dust because that is what this phone basically is?

    Yup it is nice and simple but why worry about breaking or losing your current device? Let your insurance worry about it, after all you do overpay them for that service.

    Sure, if it only charged through a usb plug I could use it with the battery. And yes I would buy one if it arrived in the market I live in.

    This would be the perfect camping/fishing phone if it was waterproof and floated. I would still take it camping but I would love to be able touches it without worrying about fish guts killing it. It's priced just right and has that 29 day battery time that it's no excuse that every home emergency kit shouldn't have one.
  8. Not really interested in the internet aspect of it, but the price is something I like. Would be nice to hear about updates concerning the payment plan. Hope to see it in america someday
