If you need a cell-phone more than status, buy it!

My experience with the LG TM250 (so far) has been positive. I say "so far", because for the short time that I have used this phone, that may not be sufficient enough time to really evaluate it's performance. I like this phone for several reasons. It is compact, and as such, it is easy to carry in the optional belt holster that I use. Not much larger than the pager that I had, I carry it all the time, and I never shut it off.
I should add that at my age (56), I have no interest in the frills that younger people seem to want in a cellphone. My phone is always set to vibrate, so trendy ringtones are not relevant to me. Likewise, changeable covers which it doesn't have, are in the same category. I only carry the phone in it's holster, and there are no scratches on it. It is however, a painted metal case with a chrome strip across the top. It reminds me of the polished hood on my Lincoln Towncar! If I were to carelessly carry the phone in my pocket with my keys and coins, I would expect the finish to be scratched and worn, in short order.
The phone book has room for two hundred listings of five numbers each, and after 102 entries, I couldn't think of anymore numbers to add to it. I bought this phone from Bell Mobility, and it was the second cheapest phone they had in their line-up. It is a basic cell phone, but it does the job quite well.
I doubt if this phone has enough pizazz to appeal to younger users who need to impress their friends, but it does all I personally need it to do. Having said the above, there is one option that it doesn't have. I would gladly trade the two games it came with, for a calculator function. That, I would use regularly, compared to the games which I have no interest, or time to use. Overall, I like the feel and look of this phone, and keeping the price in mind, I am satisfied with it.
