My Poor Old Phone...

I've had this phone for about four years now.

That's a long time.

That's a really long time!

If you convert that number into phone years, my phone would be approximately 140 years old.

Seriously...I checked.

In that time it has been a great phone.  Unfortunately it is getting tired and starting to show its age.

For example...
-It can't send photos without wigging-out and shutting itself down. It doesn't do much better at receiving photos either.
-It's battery is nearly done for.  It will only last all day if I don't use it much. Ongoing text conversations will kill it in about half a day, and actual talking will drain it in about an hour.
-The battery cover doesn't want to stay on anymore.
-One of the buttons sticks a bit.
-It's rubberized finish has almost completely peeled off.
-It has various scratches, dings, and cracks.
-But worst of all, it shuts itself off at seemingly random times; sometimes as much as three times per day.  This is pretty annoying when you are waiting for a call/text, or are using your phone as your alarm clock.

Despite its many problems of late, I have really liked this phone!  I've never lost any of my contacts or data, the calendar is really useful, I like the notes feature, and it takes ok photos on the rare occasion that I use its camera.  I also like that I can plug it into my computer and backup everything.  The MicroSD card thing is cool too.

This is definitely the best phone I have ever owned, but I can't ignore that it is due for retirement.

Good thing I have a new one on the way...

I've had my phone for nearly two years. The battery is starting to die faster. Sorry about your phone and have fun with your new one.
