Hey Ray, I don't want to be rude or anything, but not many people here like you.
But don't worry, I don't judge.
Just wanted to give you a heads up. ;-)

My first phone was the Nokia 5165 with the Blue faceplate, and I had it up until September of 2006 when a tornado blew it away somewhere. I had only used it for a few months though from when I got it through Tracfone back in 2001 before I got on US Cellular and got me a little black flip phone from Motorola (forgot what it was called).

My First Phone was prepaid version of motorola razr. I do love when I had it but it might be somewhere because I recycled old phone to get new phone almost 4 years ago.

My very first phone was the LG Rumor. I liked it at the time... now i feel like throwing it off of my porch. ;D I have it but it doesn't turn on because it was drowned in water when my stupid self had it in my pocket of my swimsuit when I entered my pool.

This to me is only a good deal if you can't buy a new phone. To be stuck two years with EOL or out dated phones is rediculous. The NEW GN or EVO LTE is coming and they are clearing stock to make room for LTE phones. I'd pass on this if I didn't need a FREE phone and be stuck with a 2 year contract with phones on the way out. Why not do this with the EVO LTE or Galaxy Nexus!

first phone was Galaxy S2 tmobile. Awesome, great graphics.
21. kshell1 (Posts: 1143; Member since: 05 Oct 2011)
You obviously haven't been in the phone business long, you chose a great phone just the wrong version of it, if you think it has great graphics take a look at the international version of the s2
