Mobile technology has come a long way since the days of the car phone. But while the average American gets a new cell phone every 12 to 17 months, some people just can’t let go of the past (or simply don’t want to). You probably know at least one person who has held on to that old school Nokia cell phone or Motorola Razr for the past 10 years, despite the fact that the screen is cracked and it can’t even get email. While most of us are obsessed with having the latest and greatest gadget, these folks say they’re reducing waste and saving money by continuing to use their old phone.
Personally, my phone is what I consider reasonably intelligent. It makes and takes calls, and also has voicemail. If you’re hooked on your iPhone but crave a little nostalgia, there’s always this.
