Indeed I misunderstood - you're sorted then

I agree, about 2 to 3 years. My 4th N900 died this week.
And I can no longer find an original model in good condition. Since the massive deployment of 4G this year, I have more and more network problems, It is sadly time for me to switch to another model. Under Sailfish OS maybe? A little off topic, sorry!

I got one in 2011 that I still use daily, although not for phone calls. I have one functional spare. At one time or another I've had five n900s, and I've never had one die or become hopelessly bricked. I wish I had kept the one I purchased in 2009 - I gave that one (and one other) away.

As for me I've purchased one on 2010 and stood with me for almost three & half year with excessive use and few drops and one battery change. I had to give it a way cause of some problems. Before three Months I searched again and bought a second hand good condition one and am using it as a private phone not main phone and am happy with it with a lot of MODS.

Nokia really knows how to maintain customers and keep a good condition cell phones..
