Comment The basic handset from BetterWorldWireless.com (Score 1) 505

I have the basic handset from http://www.betterworldwireless.com/ , a pay as you go cell phone company. Whenever folks are showing off their new super slim fancy all-in-one camera-phone-tv-music-sink phones, I pull this sucker out and smile as they recoil in horror. It's about 6" long and an 1" thick and 1.5" wide approximately (a small brick), isn't too heavy, has good battery life, a green and black primitive screen that just does text and a few small icons. It looks like it's from 1984 too. It's a good one for tech-challenged rents, or people who need a phone that can take a beating from farm animals.
