They did make GSM models of those Nokias. My sister had one. She dropped it in the toilet at work one day and it actually worked better after she dried it out. She used to always sound muffled and tinny before, but after "the incident" she was always loud & clear. Take a look on Ebay, I'm sure you can find one for not much $.

Nice! My Ericofon is sadly a bit staticky, I bought it that way, but so far there are otherwise no problems. I'm just happy we have an exchange that supports the rotaries.

Hmm, didn't know that about the Nokia. Does that mean it would work with Verizon? How would I go about activating it? I found the one I had on Wikipedia, mine was actually a 6190, but like everyone else says, that damn thing was impossible to kill, plus had a screen that wouldn't wash out in the sun and I loved to play snake on it. It did everything I needed it to and nothing I didn't!

Today's cell phone has more computing power than the moon lander.

Verizon and Sprint are CDMA.

I don't know if Verizon is like Sprint on this one but if it wasn't badged as a Sprint phone they can't/won't activate it. It HAD to be a phone made for Sprint. One of the drawbacks of CDMA service. Well, that and they can dictate what plan you are on based on your phone.

Nice thing though is since you can call a phone in stolen and they flag the ESN so it is worthless for anyone trying to activate it you can get insurance for that unlike ATT and their iPhone.

AFAIK, if you activate it with their customer service call center instead of a store, they will activate another carrier's CDMA phone.

Well, I googled around and it sounds like hit-or-miss...some people claim they've done it, others claim that they were told that their phone is not a Sprint-branded phone and that was the end of that. Mostly I'm finding people who want to activate Sprint phones on Verizon, though.

Uh-oh...big brother is watching me:

One of our sources has led us to this interesting article on the Slight Paranoia blog.

—————————————————————-
Sprint Nextel provided law enforcement agencies with its customers’ (GPS) location information over 8 million times between September 2008 and October 2009. This massive disclosure of sensitive customer information was made possible due to the roll-out by Sprint of a new, special web portal for law enforcement officers.

The evidence documenting this surveillance program comes in the form of an audio recording of Sprint’s Manager of Electronic Surveillance, who described it during a panel discussion at a wiretapping and interception industry conference, held in Washington DC in October of 2009.

It is unclear if Federal law enforcement agencies’ extensive collection of geolocation data should have been disclosed to Congress pursuant to a 1999 law that requires the publication of certain surveillance statistics — since the Department of Justice simply ignores the law, and has not provided the legally mandated reports to Congress since 2004.
