I understand. Personally I don't 'live' on my phone like some, so the other features are rarely used. There are some companies that have non-smart phones still. Shocking I know. Depends on the carrier/service provider you are using.
Thanks. I am only a beginner when it comes to tech so I need to be easy to use
Is the only reason you want a basic phone because you think the others are hard to use? If you can click on an icon and can remember your email address, using a smartphone is not very complex if you don't mess with them too much.
If you are doing it for a budget thing, then get what you need, but if just because you are afraid of technology, need to start learning. People who are not aware of how the internet, web sites, email, programs, computers work are hugely vulnerable to scams and identity theft.
