Dumb Phones

The age of dumb phones is over. I am looking over plan replacement phones and finding almost no folding phones.

Dag-nab-it.

The important parts here are:
  • I'm on a family plan.
  • Family plan has no texting.
  • Family plan has no data.
  • I am unwilling to pay data plan pricing, at all, period.
I am hoping that somebody will put out a feature phone that has a micro-usb connector. I don't see it happening anytime soon.

I'd update my phone, then sell the new one and make a profit, but the new ones all need internet $$$.

Can I rant that I hate the new phone racket? Phones were already expensive before all this internet craze, and now they are way too expensive. 

The second part of my hate is the size of the phones. I like small phones. I want a small phone. These new ones just aren't small enough for me. All I care about is getting the maximum standby time and forgetting that I have the phone on me.
