thank you very much for the replies. ive yet to find a free barebones phone but i still will need to look around for other retailers. i did find 2 sofar, pc mobile samsung c414 for $50, activation and plan $ unknown. the other is telus LG A341. $60 for the phone, activation $20, plan uknown. i have yet to see other retailers for phones before asking about plans but if i decide on a particular one, then i'll look more into it. atm im in the inquiry mode. i dont know if the dedicated retailers have free flip phones but i have to check if it requires a contract to purchase such a phone.
i'll have to check the dedicated retailers but i know that in all likelyhood id be lucky to find 1 basic flip phone.
i do respect peoples' choices to get Droids, Blackberries or Iphones but im not much for touch screens. it may be useful for most activities but i cant even fathom using an ipad 24/7. short periods are ok but eventually its like taping a brick for a few hours. there's just no shock absorbing function for touch screens. touch screens often come with the extra bells and whistles which id rather avoid even if the phone is free. a prepaid plan is preferred to an actual contract in my case.
lol ,sorry if my original post here was a bit on the edge but im in that small minority that prefers the older cellphone tech to the new ones. i thank you for the honest replies.
