Re: [General] This plan to get rid of our phones, is it viable? If you are light users, do you [need] smartphones?
I use a refurbished LG enV2 (VX-9100) which I bought through an Amazon seller for something like $ 50.
I use PagePlus wireless which is a virtual operator that uses the excellent Verizon network. (You need CDMA phones for this network, such as the enV2).
I use a PagePlus dealer online, Kitty Wireless, that will sell me 2,000 minutes for $ 80----that covers me for a year. So I get plenty of phone service for about $ 7 a month.
[They also sell minutes in lower quantities, and have various other monthly plans available].
To me, my dirt-cheap basic phone IS a "smart" phone.
