    OK, this is a dumb question but I am not a tech savvy person.

    I have a 640 LTE running windows 10 mobile.

    I don't tweet, facebook, skype or use many if any apps.

    I mainly use my phone for calls, texts, emails to occasionally check weather and sometimes for gps.

    My question is how long can I continue to use my phone for those type of things?

    I don't really want to change phones and go to android or ios if I don't have to.

    Thank you so much for helping out.

    For as long as the phone lasts. I don't see any carrier dropping LTE support in the foreseeable future.

    However, the 640 that I bought for my Dad a few years ago has started showing some quirks. His main complaint about it is that, for whatever reason, he can't respond to group texts anymore. It only sends out individual responses to everyone in the group.

    Tried it a couple of times. There's no telling. My folks live in another state, so I don't know how he treats the phone. Could just be a dying 640 that's been through a lot.

    There are users still using Windows 7.8 phones purchased in 2011.

    I'm tech support for my folks too! Fortunately (or maybe UNFORTUNATELY lol) in my case they only live a few blocks away.

    I have an unused 640 lying around that, ironically, I bought from you in 2016. Need it back? ๐Ÿ˜‚

    Ha ha ha. That's pretty cool. Nice of you to offer, but that's ok. I really appreciate it though.

    You can use the phone for your needs as long as you like. It has no expiry date and will continue to do those tasks for you.

    I enjoy a good challenge every once in a while, and my Mom can sure deliver. Ha ha She can do some serious damage to Android.
