I miss flip phones. Too bad the software is way beyond updates like my iphone.



I just use my phone to receive phone calls and sometimes make them. No need for updates for me.

I keep hearing that flip phones are going to stop working sometime this year, but my carrier has not sent me any notice of that.

Vaper buys pod system, asks for a 510 adapter. LOL for days

You can install Windows XP, same feelings.

Damn, I'd grab it. Probable very poor quality, but 20 bucks is 20 bucks.

The answer to 1984 is 1973 § Panasonic or Samsung - that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer.

Dirt cheap Acatel smartphone, cost around 20£. So slow is virtually unusable. Not a big deal for me as I don't have any friends.

No point in me going for a shiny new phone on contract,I don't even carry my phone. By choice I wouldn't even have a mobile but you have to nowadays.


Looking to spend 100£ ish, pay as you go.

Anything good on FT?

My duraforce pro 2 showed up today while i was at work. Apperently they shipped the phone turned on with gps active... it got tons of "govement" push notificstions for amber alerts and other local alerts(suprized thats even a feature). It apparently was going off with tons of notifications, i was at work, and it was annoying as fuck to my mother who brought it in. 58 fucking push notifications from apparently every town my phone drove through durring delivery.

Thats how i feel, and all i use my old ass iphone 4 for. Calls and sometimes text. Cant use the internet on it since the browser needs an update and dont support the old ass firmware.




Probably not this year, but when 5g becomes more avaliable for consumers, 3g networks are supossedly closing down(90%+ what flip phones use). That means this iphone 4 would stop working too.








Edit: this new phone is a whole new learning experience lol. I knew it was waterproof, but going through the camera settings there is a designated "underwater" mode! 👍🏽

Go to local computer stores and pawnshops, anywhere that sells used phones and get the best condition brand name phone you can get for what you want to spend. I've been buying like that since before smartphones. I currently have a Samsung Galaxy 7 edge that I paid about $300 US for a couple years ago.

If I'm ignoring you it's because you're fallacy impaired. Here's hoping you rectify your problem so that we might have a sensible conversation.

I just did the math, I bought the current one almost 3 years ago. I buy flagship models and they last about 3 or 4 years on average.
