    LOL, I had originally written that the OF skinflints so hard that
    the FCC ought to grant him a ham radio license on general principle.

    Maybe I lobbed this chestnut at you at John Harvard's, but...

    Once upon a time a Hartford, CT millionaire
    (the inventor of the Maxim silencer)
    wanted to buy a vacuum tube
    from a radio amateur in Springfield, MA.

    He was too cheap to place the order by
    telegram, long-distance telephone, or even US Mail.
    But he couldn't manage to contact the ham directly on the air,
    and was forced to arrange an ad hoc relay to consummate the deal.

    And that's how the national amateur radio club
    (the American Radio Relay League) was founded.

    Depends what network they work off of I guess, a quick search with DDG yielded Jitterbug uses Verizon, Consumer Cellular uses AT&T

    Jitterbug!!!

    It works well and is MUCH less complicated than any other Verizon phone.
