WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- A Winston-Salem man refused to get an iPhone because a voicemail from his mom who passed away wouldn't transfer from an Android phone to the new phone.
So Dexter Tinnin's family got creative and had the recording transferred to a stuffed Build-A-Bear, which allows Tinnin to play the audio recording when the bear is squeezed tight.
"Merry Christmas Dad," reads a social media post that has been shared thousands of times.
Tinnin lost his mother in 2009. The emotional video shows the man clutching the teddy bear.
