I love my French Nokia. I don’t want to buy another phone because it works perfectly. I also don’t want to buy a 39 dollar charger because I *have* a charger. The cheapest solution, which looks very ridiculously big, was to buy a “worldwide to US converter” (because they don’t make simple European to US converters) and then a converter for 3-to 2-prong plugs. Because my apartmnet does not have 3-pronged plugs. I saved money and I did not buy new un-needed electronics. Of course my plug looks idiotic, but it doesn’t have to leave the house, now that it’s on the internet for every one to see, that is.
