welp, meeting the concrete outside the library has killed dead the screen of my phone. :-/ Fortunately, I have a spare, but it means that I have to leave the phone off or risk losing incoming text messages.
IDEA: Cell carrier service that lets you see your texts from the 'net. I'm guessing Europe and Asia have it, and TMobile USA will have it sometime around 2017.
UPDATE: Got the phone list / SIM moved to another T610, so life is OK
