But there has got to be something that merely dials. Kick em into the comments, folks.

My cell phone is an important tool. A tool. I have experience with a lot of them. I want a telephone to make phone calls. Get unlimited roaming which allows you to use anyone's towers. At best they make poor cameras, video cameras, Internet service provider connections, iPods, movie players, word processors, PDA's, and GameBoys.

Think what you really want your cell phone to do and use other devices for those things you really have to admit are a feeble attempt at reminding you of what you have at home anyway. I want a voice activated phone that gives me umlimted calling that works anywhere I go. I want to hear it or feel it when somebody calls me and record a message when I can't answer it. It has to have phone numbers in it. Isn't that really why you bought a phone?

Now, find out those phones really work.
