    The 7290 is a serious sturdy work horse. That model lasts a lifetime!

    Mark is the man! Just because of you and this thread I got mine out of mothballs. Charged the battery and its good to go... Back to mothballs.
    It was a great phone but i cant do with its very limited functions.
    Nevertheless,it was a good exercise.

    You know what would be cool, is a BlackBerry with the 7290 (BlueBerry) style body and keypad, retro city, and the current (BB 9900 Bold) guts and touchscreen. I'd get one of those bad boys!
