Strong Simple Phone for People Who Live

Rugged and simple. It makes calls, takes calls, and does real simple texts. It holds lots of (minimal quality) pictures, and survives in my pocket while I drive my tractors.  Battery life is several days, and talk time is good.  I have glued the red button so it cannot be accidentally pressed....

My friends laugh and mock, but I believe that smart phones (which they all recommend or insist I get) are for people who don't like the reality they are in, so they trade living for interacting with their phone.
