please help me selecting a feature phone like Alcatel smartflip
« on: January 28, 2020, 10:26:13 AM »

For a change I wanted to move away from my smart phone [S8 currently] to a feature phone.

I liked Alcatel smartflip because It has a browser o search for a address and maps for navigation.

and honestly this is all I need, apart from calling and texting

The only thing not motivating is the price, I do not want to spend more than 30-35$ on a phone.

Can you guys please recommend me a phone or a phone where I can compare different kids of these phone ?

fyi: I am on cricket wireless.

I'd tread carefully here.  I don't know of any of the flip phones currently available have LTE.  3G coverage will be contracting and going away slowly over the next few years.  Plenty of areas are already LTE-only, depending on your carrier.

How about you just keep your S8 but turn off all notifications and remove almost all the apps?  What are you specifically hoping to gain with a flip phone?  I wouldn't expect a browser or navigation to be worth a damn on one of those, FYI.

A quick search reveals this phone has 4g LTE. I think it would be helpful to read reviews, but the phone looks decent to me. I with you on ditching the data mining smart phone, and the fact that it has *some* navigation and browser capability is encouraging. From what I read group texting is not an option on this phone, though.

does anyone have any experience converting DVD's to laserdisc? I hope to convert all my DVDs to laserdisc very soon but I'm having a little trouble finding information about how to accomplish this. Obviously I'm not the first person to have this idea so hopefully you can point me in the right direction.
