Thank you.

I have been searching and searching for a suitable replacement for my beloved vx8000, which I bought *used* 2 years ago after diligently researching it here on phonescoop, and still use every day, at home and work (on a farm).

Needless to say, it works as perfectly as it did the day it came in the mail (doesn't look nearly as good though, duct tape patches and all).

I almost went to Nextel (dreading the lack of reception) for their ruggedized cameraphone - which has LESS memory and no alarm clock - just because I thought that eventually my 8k will kick the bucket and I had better be prepared...

But thank goodness - now I find out all I have to do is play surgeon, when the outside of the phone is looking battered.

I wonder if I bought two dummy phones... would I be still using the original guts 4 years from now??? Who ever heard of keeping a cell phone that long?

This phone should be in the Cellular Phone Hall of Fame. (is there one?)

just my humble opinion.
