Add me as a "metoo" if you want. I had a Nokia 6600 (I regret the 500€
but I extended them as much as I could), shortly after I learn of
OpenMoko. I decided to try to keep 6600 until Freerunner comes out, but
sadly one year before that I sent it for a 20 min swim.

Still no Freerunner, so I get a cheap Nokia 2760 (GTA01 was clearly too
early for me), lasts until today carrying my job's SIM (the work phone
is *that* crappy).

My main phone, carrying my personal SIM is OpenMoko and I'm treating it
as carefully as I can to extend it's life well beyond the current two
years, 1.5 of them with definite usage :)

If it breaks, and no viable alternative exists, I hope to get an A7+, or
A7, or A6, or A5+buzz fix (in this decreasing order of preference).

Even with all the bugs and immaturity of the platform, I'm so passionate
for Free Software I rather go through all this again than go back to
proprietary phones or get a pseudo-open phone (Android/Linux, Meego,

To all SHR and FSO core develpers: a *HUGE* thank you, I'm only sorry I
can't help out more.
