My old and trusty LG3200 Tracfone flip phone got itself fried in the car charger a few weeks ago, and I replaced it with an LG 100 candybar style phone. I love this phone! It's sturdy, easy to work with, has great audio and the battery life is amazing. I just recharged it after a WEEK AND A HALF of constant use and no charging! That's how long it took to run down. I have never heard of such a thing.
