Note: this photo was published in a May 26, 2009 blog titled "Make Sure Your Cellphone Will Work Abroad." And it was published in an undated (Mar 2010) Hot Mobile Phones blog with the same title as the caption I used for this Flickr page. It was also published in a Mar 18, 2011 Phone Electronics blog , with the same caption and detailed notes that I had written here on this Flickr page. And it was published in a May 5, 2011 blog titled "Tips for Making Calls Abroad." It was also published in a Jun 29, 2011 Articles and Resources blog , with the same caption and detailed notes that I had written on this Flickr page.

Moving into 2013, the photo was published in a blog that has the longest title of any blog posting I've ever seen: "Sharp FX Plus Unlocked GSM Phone with Android 2.2 OS, 2MP Camera, Touchscreen, QWERTY Keyboard, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth – BlackOMG!
