Well, I have the weekend to figure it out and, meanwhile, I'll use a Nokia 6300 I found o the back of a drawer
Gods, do I feel naked without a smartphone
Edit: So I managed to get a used one for a good price out of ebay and it was pretty much out of desperation. It's an 802 so I'm hoping I don't have to deal with the restrictions of a carrier specific model which I tried to read on, only to decide I don't want to go through again like I had on the HTC.
