Yayyy! My old Sony came back to life, I guess it just had to drain the last milliwatt of battery to totally reset - first time it's had a problem. It's only used once or twice a month when I use public transport to a client so I was looking for cheap, but not crap.

5 years old, maybe more, but I see Sony sell a slightly updated version of the same thing, same specs ('massive 4gb') and the buttons moved around a bit, but the new one doesn't come with a clip which is a total downside as I usually wear a t-shirt.

As to using a phone - too annoying when people send a message (or worse still call) in the middle of a good song.

Maybe I'll research the zune @dandy72 mentioned
this sort of useful but dying tech - stock up a couple of spares for the future.
Apparently SanDisk do a cheap mp3 player, but the user reviews [of 'latest'/'updated' models] didn't sound good.

Is technology going backwards, mp3 players, phones (faster but more fragile), Windows 7--> 8 -> 10 definite downgrades
Signature ready for installation. Please Reboot now.
