  1. Love it! Was so tired of carrying a slab around that falls out of your pocket. Has plenty of memory to do what you need to do on a phone, after all for long computing jobs you can do that on your laptop or tablet. Really nice phone! Have wondered for years why no one made a flip style smart phone.

  2. Where can you purchase a screen protector for this model phone? I am an equipment operator, outside all day long and this screen gets dirty very quickly. Any help at all in acquiring one would be greatly appreciated.
