Forget smart phones. This phone is the absolute best phone I have ever owned. I got one new in-the-box which hadn't been opened since 2001. The phone has amazing features for its time. If you need a phone that is excellent for simple communications and organizational tasks, then this is a great one. It has t9 predictive text, a wonderful daylight readable monochrome LCD display. As an added bonus, it it dust, shock, temperature, and water resistant. Its nearly indestructible which is why this legendary mobile phone is still used by so many emergency services across Europe. There are many tools available and you can mod the firmware to add an e-mail client, but I think the basic firmware is great. The phone is easy to use, and functions are readily available. It also had a feature which I find unusual which allows you to record phone calls, as well as audio memos. The calendar is simple, but effective with a planner including monthly, weekly, and daily views. As an added bonus to the cool factor, this phone was featured in the Bourne movies as Jason Bourne's mobile phone.
