Seriously, my wife has the latest-and-greatest digital cellphone with camera, etc., but I had this 1993-vintage unit swapped over to the SSEi when I bought the car in 1996, and it'* been there ever since. I still get service from Verizon Wireless for it, and pay only for airtime, nothing else, so I figure I'll just keep on using it until Verizon Wireless finally yanks their analog service. It'* great: I can speed-dial with a couple of button presses, it'* hands-free speaker mode unless I feel like actually picking up the handset, and with a lot of places now thinking about (or already passing) laws against using a cellphone while driving _unless_ you're using hands-free mode, this is one old phone whose time had come, then gone, then come again.
