Default Blurp....

That'* the noise my cell phone made when the "Universal" clip broke and the phone fell in the lake.....

So, I had to make a run to the mall for a new phone. Now I got this:

Hmm, I would've thought of a sound more like *Bloop* ...

Nice phone too! Althought I still am a fan of black phones... everything seems to be going silver now.

Knowing MOS there ain't no telling. He probably got tired of the phone and threw it in the lake. My son just pulled a slick one. He ran over his phone with his bonnie. Of course I don't believe it for one minute that it was an accident especially since he'* been complaining about the phone and wanting and updated one. He claims he was cleaning his rims and his phone fell under the tire and he didn't hear it or see it.

I may have been born at night but it wasn't last night!!!!

No!! It was an accident. I don't really have the $130 it took to replace my phone.

I had one of them glue on "Universal Belt Clips" on my phone, and the glue broke when I bumped into the edge of the dock. Shoulda known better, since the glue has given out before...

Replacement phones ain't cheap. When you get a new plan, they are cheap as all get out, but when you already have a phone, and want to stay with clam-shell case, that'* about as cheap as they get.

This one came with a two piece case, which has the clip on it. I just don't use the earpiece half and it'* fine.

I almost wanted to get a camera phone, but they started at over 200 bucks

All the prices around here are up around $250 for just my Nokia 3585i, Cellphones are a ripoff.

Cell phone warranty plans are nice, for those unfortunate "accidents". Often you can join up and pay 1 month (usually $4-5) and then get a new phone, if that just so happens to be the same month that your "accident" happens.
