    That phone sounds... interesting. I mean -- you do not meet such devices everyday. I bet that without "huge colour display" or "built-in gamepad" thay managed to make a really comfortable keyboard. Lack of text messages sounds not too good (if there is a better way to quickly notice a friend, that your boss banned an ICQ and external e-mail sites -- i wish to know it), but... It worths consideration. Of course -- if it works on Saturdays (sorry, could not resist) ).

    OR you could just not get a cellphone. Or not use Text Messaging on a phone you already have. The concept is all well and good but who would buy a brand new phone for those 'features'? Sounds more like a budget phone than a kosher phone to me..

    Maybe I'm too traditional, but if people don't want hot steamy phone sex, why not simply not call the hot steamy phone sex number?

    In the same manner, if people don't like SMS or cameras or other assorted spiffy gadgets why not simply buy a regular phone and not use those features?

    Because I'd rather buy a phone for cheaper without all that crap, and I want the peace of mind knowing that if I let a friend or family member borrow my phone(I don't intend to get a newfangled cell phone anyway, so this is a moot point), I like the peace of mind that they won't use something of mine to do something that they shouldn't be doing (the first point is more important, the second a distant second, so don't try to make a response about my opinon of the blocked numbers).

    Sounds like an annoying concept. People want all the little gizmos, if they didn't, they wouldn't exist. These phones would not do well on an open markett, would be awkward to find replaceable components for and would be very hard to replace once they left the market as most phones do have 'gagets' attached. Business wise, it's a bad investment.

    You think that, Chizabubble? I agree that it's possible it wouldn't do well on the open market, and that a lot of people want gizmos. But I, for one, don't want those gizmos on a phone. I would rather buy this cellphone than one with those features, since I would be paying for them without ever intending to use them. That's just me, but a lot of my friends also feel this way about cellphones, and that's why even the one who owns one only uses it to make calls. I realize that this isn't the case with most cellphone users, I'm just making the point that there are some people who look for fewer features in their phones. Another example: people who are technologically challenged or elderly people, who don't want to have to spend ages figuring out how to make a simple phone call.

    I don't see how these phones would be hard to buy new parts for. I would think it would be easier to replace parts, since they don't have any special features (other than the number blocking). Then again, I don't know very much about cellphones, so this is just my intuitive guess and could be horribly wrong.

    Aikido - Yeah, cellphones are convenient, I'll give them that. But, as a female, I get to carry a bag everywhere, so a camera is easy to cart around with me. Ha, I have the advantage. But really, if I had a cellphone I would mostly want to use it as an emergency or convenience phone. Emergency, like if my car broke down, and convenience since all the pay phones at my school are card-only...and I don't have a phone card. (You'd think they'd realize this is a stupid idea.) Oh, and I suspect that text messaging is addictive. It's better if I avoid that sort of thing, because I know I'd get hooked.

    text messaging is amazingly useful. like. I realistically think I send more texts than make calls. its far and away more convinient and less obtrusive.
