Welcome, tattncat!

Umm, well, OK, I guess it's not a good idea to have me be refreshment chairman or treasurer.

Wait! I got it! I can be the VP! I"ll just sit back, enjoy all the perks, and not have to do anything.

Hi all, my name is Evan and I like my phone with no cameras, please.
But alas, the world has gotten into me! No more can I find one that has none.

Um.. I do check the web if needed, mainly for train schedules or maps. Am I not qualified?

My phone is connected to the wall by a wire.
It has a rotary dial and just makes phone calls.
No camera, no text. Just calls.
However, you can beat a man to death with the handset and still order a pizza after.

My cell phone service costs about a dollar a day. If I had a job which required me to spend $100 per month on a smartphone, I wouldn't object. But without the specific need, count me out.
As little as I use my phone, I spend about $20 every 90 days.

I have Virgin Mobile pre-paid, no data plan (although my phone claims to be able to do it, the screen's too small for that to be useful). I did splurge on a phone with a full keyboard because DH prefers to communicate by text message when we're not in the same place, being a bit of a phone-phobe, and typing texts on the number pad drives me up the wall.

Do we have enough members for a quorum yet?
DH and I are also of the "drive it until it dies" school of car ownership.

We do have the fastest DSL our carrier offers, since like at least one other poster in this thread, we pretty much live online.

Hi, my name is Karen, and my phone makes and receives calls. Period. Actually it has texting capabilities and a camera, but I've never sent a text and I can count on my fingers the number of pictures I've taken - and they're all trapped in my phone because I have no way to get them out. We don't have cell service where I live, so my phone doesn't get a lot of use anyway. Oh, and as far as internet access goes, to my utter dismay the only things available here are dial-up and satellite, and getting a line of sight to the satellite is iffy at best, so I still struggle along with dial-up. If we ever get cell service up here, I'll get a smartphone with a data plan just so I can tether it to my computer for internet access!

Honestly, do you need more in a phone? I will still bury my head in the sand of luddites' havens about this..

Not once, not twice, but three times... And all three times it wouldn't come back on again. That's when I decided I needed a new one, that could withstand the water.

That's when I got this one:
