I have been considering getting rid of my smart phone and using one of those cheap flip phones. I use my smart phone a lot for other things but all of those things are not necessary and I can do them with my ipad or desktop, etc. Have any of you made the switch?

I have a Tracfone. It stays in my pickup. Don't remember the last time I used it. I use my Ipad in the house when I'm away from my laptop.

I donít see the reason depending on your carrier. I have metro pcs and pay $40 a month for 5gb data and cell service. Never gone over data.
To go flip phone itís $25 a month. So not worth 15 bucks savings.

Then you won't be able to look something up when you are in a gentlemen's debate to prove that you are right on facts.

Not yet, but I am done with iPhones.
Cheaper brand / model and plan are in my future.

I doubt many people have done it. As described above, you can have a smart phone and data plan for not much more than the flip phone. With a smart phone, you have all the additional technology that comes with it and you can use it as needed, or not use it if you donít need it.

Itís the same principle as many other things in life: Iíd rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

If youíve decided you donít need it, you can probably save $15 or more (depending on your plan) per month.

I swore I would never carry a cell phone, as I was either at home or at work if someone needed to get a hold of me. In 2004 I started a lot of travel and the wife said I really needed a cell phone, Nokia without even a camera (no cameras allowed in DOD facilities) ... flash forward to today, I carry two smart phone (one business and one personal), plus I have an iPad and a laptop, no way I would give up my smart phone(s) as its just too convenient when I need to look something up wherever I am (that I have cell service which is probably 99% of the time).

I have a flip phone, when I at home it sits on the dresser in the bedroom. If I get ready to leave the house, the last thing I do is put it my pocket. When I return home, the first thing I do is lay it back on the dresser. Usually at about lunch and bedtime I check to see if I have had any calls or messages.

I don't think they are called smart phones anymore, just cell phones.

I only have a flip phone. It cost me $100 a year through tracfone. I just keep it in the truck for when I go somewhere. I use a laptop at home and we have a homephone.

That's what I had. I updated it to an iPhone and kept my same number. Go to Best Buy.

I resisted getting a smart phone for awhile, but now that I've had one all these years there is no way I could go back to a flip phone. I use mine for too many things I can't use a flip phone for.

I was fine with my little no screen Nokia until
everybody started sending around pictures of my
grandkids. Couldn't be left out of that.

The only device I use is my phone. I have a laptop and an iPad that I never touch.
