    Do they still sell voice only mobile phones?

    Hopefully with a rechargeable card (prepaid).

    SWMBO was given one recently and we thought it might be useful to keep
    it for emergencies, but it has sms and fax msgs. As she is a teacher
    this is a definite not on (only takes a kids to nick it and sms a sign
    up to blow all the prepaid).

    Whilst we don't like them, we recognise that a voice only one would be
  2. Yeah, it gives me the craps with all these new "features" that all
    phones have - I just want to be able to make phone calls and the odd
    text message, and from my time selling the things, that's all that most
    people over 25 want. The 15-25 yo's are pretty much the only ones
    driving the market with all the whizzbangery. In 2-1/2 years of owning a
    camera phone, i've only found it useful once. She Who Must Be Obeyed was
    crook and sent me out to buy a bookcase. I was able to take pictures of
    potential candidates and MMS them to her for her verdict. Certainly a
    feature I could live without. I used it for novelty use in the first few
    months of ownership - I think I've gone 12 months now without using the
    camera once.
  3. What I hate about the modern phones are the colour screens. You can't
    see the damn things when the backlight is off, so it's next to
    impossible to just glance at the display to see if you had a call or
    sms etc.
