I don't know how 'smart' my Avid 557 is, but it does the job for me. I have a lot of apps from the Google store which allows me to use the 'micro computer' for many jobs not associated with telephones. It cost $40 from Consumer Cellular.

All too many can't resist buying stuff on "tick": they rarely think what it's actually costing them as their minds are bent on having the latest "toy" no matter. Having a few bob saved is way better than paying some installments on something you don't REALLY need. Same applies to most things.

Hmmm My flip phone from the 90s still works just fine. Why in the world would someone spend hundreds of dollars repeatedly year by year to simply have a new toy? Guess they just have money to waste.

I use Tracfone. I buy a new phone every 2 years. I look for the best price. I check Tracfone, QVC, Walmart, eBay and Amazon. I research prices and read reviews. I currently own a Samsung Galaxy J7 Crown. I bought a Motorola Moto 6 for out of the country travel to use with Google Fi. I bought the Moto 6 from an authorized seller on eBay. I had just missed a good deal from the Motorola website.

All iPhone users with phones older than 6 will have to buy new phones. Apple is not supporting OS older than 13.

Regarding Ron's comment about finding a phone with a removeable battery: I still use my Samsung S4 2+16GB because I can replace the battery when its performance dips. It's like getting a new phone everytime I put in a new battery. Ravpower sells them on Amazon for around $15. Bob, I believe you have a Samsung S4 too as a backup phone.

"All iPhone users with phones older than 6 will have to buy new phones."
It's no wonder the world is in a mess with rapidly depleting precious metals and holes in the ground being filled with non-recycled rubbish.
