Would have Used it 'til the Cows Came Home

I had purchased the Motorola V-170 in 2006 from K-Mart for $49.99. This phone is a little workhorse, and I love(d) it. However, I was notified by Tracfone that they no longer support this 2g phone, and they supplied me with a replacement phone. The replacement was junk, so I returned it.
Fortunately, in 2015 I had purchased an LG 440G, so I had Tracfone activate it instead. (Tracfone wanted me to send them my old phone -- the V-170 -- but I refused: I purchased it, and it is my phone even though I can no longer use it.)
The LG appears to be a decent phone, but I will always prefer the Motorola V-170. I liked EVERYthing about it: battery life, back-lit keyboard, sound quality, reliability, good looks, good features, solid construction, etc. The charger that came with it is also of solid construction. I only wish that there was a way to update a 2G phone to a 3G phone! If so, I would continue using my V-170 'til the cows came home! :-)
