Three cheers for Justine Haupt. An instrumentation engineer at the Brookhaven lab. She's developed a rotary cell phone for pure functionality. For, steady thyself, making phone calls. No texting, which she hates, (me too). In kit form.

Hi, Really cool...but I find some of the features of newer cell phones really useful. Camera, maps, weather. Most everything else is not too useful to me. I don't stream anything, don't watch videos, and never do anything involving banking or bill paying. They are supposed to be safe....so was using radium to cure illnesses. Shocked

Good Listening
Bruce

I live close to a small college. At crosswalks they had installed for a while signage that was down at the curb level saying, "LOOK". Kids would be so engrossed in their smart phone world that they imperiled themselves going across streets. For some they're almost an extension of their nervous systems.
