I don't have a cell phone in general. Single mom of two, don't have the money for extras. I do need one for emergency's as my son has medical problems, but i cant afford to pay $45 a month just to use it once.

There is a phone out that is free to a certain class of people, don't know if you would be in that or not just throwing it out to you. I think it has 100 free minutes a month, so you could use it for emergencies. Look it up, might be just what you need.

Have you considered a TracFone? We pay less than $10 a month for minutes (data/text). They have regular phones and smart phones. You pay more up front for the smart phones ($100, but we only payed $70 for our on Ebay) but can pay less than $10 a month for minutes/data/text.

There are those phones people can get for emergency use only, that are free. Also there is a program though SafeLink that goes on your income or if you get Medicaid, you automatically qualify. That is also at no charge to you and you can get as many as 250 free minutes a month.

I don't have a smart phone, but only because I have yet to jump in and get one. When I do get one, I want it to do all the neat things I keep hearing about. As a tech nerd, you would have thought I'd gotten it by now, but I was more concerned with buying my kids/grandkids Christmas than being selfish and get myself a phone. The day will come when I get it. Soon...very soon!

i still have a flip phone and I LOVE IT! what makes me crazy about the newer phones: THEY'RE THE SIZE OF MY LAPTOP!!! what the?!?! weren't phones supposed to get smaller and sleeker??? i'm sorry - but i'm fine with using my phone as a means of making and answering a phone call - the end. if i want to be on the computer - I'LL GET ON MY COMPUTER! if i want to watch a movie - I'LL WATCH IT ON MY TV! this phone business is just getting out of hand! but that's just me...

You must have a very small laptop. I don't recall having a laptop that's palm-sized. As for my smartphone, it isn't even half the size of a tablet, but roomy enough to respond to people when I need to type. Please keep your opinions of smart phones to yourself. Sometimes people want to read a book or watch videos while away from home. Some people may actually do business from their phones.The appeal of smartphones is convenience. If smartphones bother you so much, go live off the grid. No one's forcing you to exist with humans who use smartphones. Just wait until cyberskin actually works. People will be typing on their arms.

I see where you're coming from, but there are advantages to smartphones. I was at the store Michael's the other day - I didn't have any coupons, so I did a search online - I found one, and saved $7 on my purchase. Then I was taking my mom to dinner - I knew the place we were going to offered Groupons, but I didn't have one. I logged on, bought a Groupon, and saved $15 on dinner and didn't need to print anything up. I use the Ibotta app and Jingit app to save/earn money every time I have to go to the store, as well as getting free gift cards through the Wrapp app. I held off upgrading to a smart phone for a long time, but between Swag Mobile and all my money saving apps, my phone has paid for itself several times over. Plus it does lots of cool non-money making things!

I've been the same way, but I finally broke down this past Friday and got a Droid smartphone. I'm going to check it out and see if I can put up with the thing and go from there. So many things seen to require smartphones now. I feel the same way as you though, on the watching tv and the computer. Those data plans can get pretty pricey. Plus I found out I have to pay more a month, just to use a smartphone than my old flip phone. My flip was a "feature" phone, as they call it. It does a lot of stuff, but we'll see how great this new smartphone thing is. lol :)

Believe me, you may just get hooked on watching a screen that fits in your hand! I've had experience with even tinier screens--My first Video MP3 player has a screen probably 1" or less, and I have watched a movie on it before!

My first cell phone was a huge battery in a shoulder bag with a curly cord leading to the handset. WOW was that cool at the time. You also got 30 minutes for $30 a month so you used it wisely (in case of emergency).
I loved when they came up with the smaller cell phones and now they just seem to be getting bigger and balkier. If I wasn't hooked on my smart phone, which my husband finally talked me into getting I would gladly go back to a regular, smaller cell phone.

I was assuming you meant several "millimeters" instead of "centimeters" thicker, as smartphones are generally less than one centimeter thick.

I have an old iPhone whose battery life is quite short, and I would rather not have to charge it several times per day.

SEVERAL CENTIMETERS???? Good grief, that would make it a brick. Several millimeters would probably be sufficient, yeah?
Stin
on 12/22/13
Yeah, several centimeters would make the phone pretty freaking thick, plus a few ounces would make it feel a lot heavier. Twice the battery life isn't worth making your phone over twice as thick and like 40% heavier.

My mom's first phone was about the size of a brick, and just as heavy. She'd make me take it if I went somewhere by myself-not so much so I could make a call, but as a weapon. ;)

I have a smartphone, but can't afford a data plan. So, I just use my phone for calls. For that, I don't need massive battery capacity. So, I'd gladly stick with my current phone.

When I read the poll, the first thing I thought of was my very first cell phone -- it had a battery pack that rivaled a jet pack, and a long curly-cord...and an antenna that rivaled a CB antenna.... and a great battery life of 30 minutes. EVERYTHING was charged as "roaming" charges and my first phone bill was over $400.00.

Thanks, I will keep my Samsung Galaxy 3

I don't know if the people answering that they'd switch out for the better battery are really considering what SEVERAL CENTIMETERS added to the size of your phone would translate to in size. That's quadrupling the thickness of many phones. I've had a cell phone since about 1999, and I've never had a cell phone that thick! The thickest phone I've ever had was a Nokia 3250, unless my first phone (one of those black Nokias with the stubby fixed antenna) was the same or marginally thicker at its thickest point. The phone I have now is maybe a third or half as thick as those. But I don't really care about thickness. But I also don't just buy a phone for the battery, either. Several factors went into my choice (heavy weights were camera & Nokia previous experience), so I wouldn't switch.

I have a really old Nokia phone, and I'm interested in getting a smart phone. But the battery issue has always stopped me. My phone can go an entire week without needing to be charged. The longest I've ever gone without charging it has been 11 days. To go from that to a phone that can hardly last until dinner time seems like a big jump.
