Throwaway technology

Back in Monticello, Minnesota, I picked up a throw-away phone to replace my own that ceased to work in the middle of nowhere. I wanted to call ahead to an H-D dealer to arrange for an oil change, but to no avail with my existing cell phone. That’s a first for me. I’ve probably dropped it one time too many.

The throw-away is a nice little unit with 300 minutes and/or 60 days of talk time, all for $29.95. It’s also SIMcarded, which means I should be able to use it anywhere in the world with the simple addition of a new SIM card.

Obviously, I’m not planning on throwing it away.

Modern technology. Ain’t it grand?
