Fireflop. Oh, I get it. That's super-creative.

I went ahead & bought one. Prime is $99 for a year, I believe, which makes the phone approximately $25. I'll use it in the garage with a bluetooth speaker & listen to Prime Stations & my Prime music collection, & I'll be grateful that it was a "flop" so that I could get such a deal on the device.
