One thing I am good at is destroying cellphones…

So far in my life, a cellphone (or is it cell phone?) never survives. I try to be careful and I try to treat it with loving hands. I guess big paws are not easy on delicate things. Regardless my cellphones seem to die an untimely death, be it my fault or someone else fault, such as when I was hit by the truck 4+ years ago…

Sveta seems to be able to use a single phone for all her life, though I did replace a case on her phone, after she cracked the cover. But still it worked for her even with the crack in the case…

A Texet tm-511r, a phone that is supposed to survive water, a 5 story fall from a building and many other things. It did not survive being beat with a hammer directly upon its exterior, but I think that I will refrain from smashing it with a hammer, not even I am that terrible acting toward a cellphone…

Therefore, under 3000 rubles and guaranteed for a year by the factory, which is a Russian company and that may just give me an advantage to keep a phone going for more than a few months at a time…

It has a 2700 мАч battery, which gives it about 24 hours of talk time and 7 weeks of standby time. That is important to me, for we travel a lot and charging is not always easy to do. It has Russian and English language only and a Russian and English keypad. As the company says, “Made for Russians!”

We will see. I hope it makes it, for it really feels good in the hand and has good reception, sound and is solid as a rock…

I am going to cross my fingers this time; oops better not for that will make it easier for me to drop…

The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do.
You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward. - Amelia Earhart
