Simple = good

I really like this simple phone. It doesn't do anything except make calls. The battery life is great >11 hours of talk time. Sturdy, I have dropped this numerous times, used in sub-zero conditions, very hot conditions, humid, dry.... Nothing phases this phone. It doe have a weird shut off every once in a while. The OS is crude at best. I have not missed the camera it doesn't have. I wish it was a candybar shape so it would be a better pocket phone. Alas, I am switching carriers and this phone won't work on the new carrier. I can't find a viable replacement. What is wrong with the cell phone developers? Why can't they make a reliable, easy, simple, tough, small cell phone with good reception, good call clarity and good battery life? It seems like the developers spend too much time on the bells and whistles and the actual function of the phone is an afterthought. I don't think I am alone in wanting a GOOD phone that is simple and sturdy to just make calls on.
