I'm fucking pissed. I love my StarTAC. No bullshit, no performance issues and just about unbreakable not to mention I have enough spare parts to keep it alive for another decade. My parents just got an iPhone 3g as well.
Suddenly BOTH of our phones are unuseable. Telus is offering free replacements. Either the LG A341 or the Huawei Y210. Both are about the shittiest phones you can get. I can understand shutting down AMPS but CDMA is still very much relied on up north where the newer services have far shittier reception. Hell, we still have UHF/VHF broadcasting in my area because DTV won't work and about an hour west you can't even get satellite phone reception.
Dammit. Because certain characters completely break the edit box, here's the URL for the second source.
