For Whom The Bell Tolls

It's been a member of my entourage for longer than i care to remember. We have shared experiences ; The time i dropped it on a rock by the lake ; That two weeks back in '07 when it ended calls of its own accord. But last night was the final straw.

As anyone that has ever used a phone before knows, the number 5 is quite important. Especially so, when it also includes the letters J,K and L for text messaging. So, when this number 5 button ceases to function, you're left with what amounts to a useless device. After all, if i cannot end my text messages to my friends in the 905 region without using the word "jackal" what good is this contraption?

So, now i need to get a new phone. I need something that has free Internet, free text messaging and allows me to use the number 5 and the letters, J, K and L for less than 30 dollars a month. Any suggestions?

Hey what the....? I was looking for a review of the movie From Whom the Bell Tolls with Gary Cooper, and I find this!

My son would suggest a walkie-talkie...but hey that's coming from a 5 year old :P

Allison - I don't believe you! I must find this phone!

Tom - My deepest apologies. I hope you eventually found what you were searching for.

Aubrey - Hey, that's not a bad suggestion. I would just have to provide everyone i know with walkie-talkies. I could probably save money if i buy in bulk.

Oh, that's OK. I've decided to follow your blog anyway since I find it halfway amusing. :)

I have no helpful suggestions. I just swung by to call you a jackal.

FYI: Bell has no sympathy for your situation.

Allison - Haha. Or for the situation of anyone recieving their ridiculous Iphone bill this month, one assumes.
