    This is my current phone, the LG LX160:

    I've had it for over 2 years... When bored, I read my notes (limit: 20), check the scheduler (riveting remembering that time I needed an oil change), and slowly text, dreading having to type any S's or Z's and push the same button 4 times... It's also got a nice little habit of rebooting itself, whether I'm in the middle of typing a long message or not even touching it. Upgrading from this piece to the beast that is the Evo is going to be a GIGANTIC leap. :cool:

    What kind of dumbphones are other people ditching?

    A Samsung SGH-x497 that's way beat up. Think feline toothmarks on the antenna. All I remember for certain is I had it before I found my fiance, so >3 years.

    The last phone I purchased was a Motorola Q. It was replaced with a Q9C about a year ago by Assurion.

    Samsung m520.

    I've had to replace it every 5 months because of Flex cable in the slider tearing and lcd screen just turning white. I <3 insurance.

    Samsung M520 here too. I haven't had any issues with it over the past 2.5 years though. In fact, I will miss the compactness as this was the first phone that fully satisfied my desire for sleek pocketability. Before that I had a few clamshell style phones. I also had Opera on it so it was highly portable and I could still jump on the internet. I don't have any complaints about it other than the screen size being too small but then again it wasn't like it was a touch screen or anything.

    I realize that the Evo might be taking a step back in terms of pocketability but I'm willing to take the risk and for me the time is right to make the jump to a smartphone. The pricing on smartphones today is much more reasonable and the whole smartphone scene (with the Android market and open APIs) is really expanding the possibilites.

    TMobile Dash (original version). I do have a hacked WinMo 6.5 ROM on it at least. I've had it for 2 years and it was already on the market for a few years before that.

    I sold my iphone 3g 2 weeks ago for $400, so I've been using my old original Razrv3.Then I found my Samsung blackjack in a box in my closet last Wednesday so now I'm using it instead.

    Nope, I got you beat. I don't have even a can-with-string. I just yell really loudly. :D

    Just kidding. I have a BB Curve 8310 with blazing speeds of up to 50 kbps. And that's on a good day.
