Dumbphone issue

>fell for the dumbphone meme and bought picrel (nokia 225 4g)
>turns out that in burgerland there's a time server bug and in my timezone (central) messages are always a few hours behind
>this causes them to get scrambled, basically making it a pain in the ass to keep track of conversations
>plebbit suggests using 2G/3G to fix it
>2G service is spotty as shit in my area so that's not an option
>basically bought a defective product
>nokia/hmd refuses to fix the problem even after many people reported they have the same issue
What the frick? I know my expectations for a $50 phone shouldn't have been high, but I think it's fairly reasonable to expect TEXTING to function properly. Any other 225 4G owners here willing to share their experiences? Also feel free to recommend candy bar dumbphones that don't suck ass.

    only viable option for a dumbphone is the cat s22, and those are being discontinued.

    dumbphones are really not much of an option anymore in the us.

        get away with what? forcing people to get smartphones?

        it sucks. i hate smartphones, id much rather have a dumbphone and my computer at home, but it isnt really an option.

        dumbphones are only made for seniors these days, its a shame.

        tbh the main reason I hate my smartphone is that it's fricking huge

        my old flip phone was half the size, half the weight, and was much nicer to carry in a suit pocket

        it's not about self control, I don't want j00gle spying on my 24/7/365 and I also hate touchscreens.

          You can use LineageOS. Nobody forces you to install tiktok and other apps. If this is still too much, phone is 100% useless. Nobody calls or sends sms (except some poor third world countries like US). Just buy mp3 player or something.

            nah, calling people is still a thing in my 2nd world shithole. still, 99.999999% of smartphones don't have physical keys, and the ones that do are so overpriced it's not even funny.

        personally, i just want to pay almost nothing for a phone, have physical buttons, a removable battery, a headhone jack, etc.

    i miss my nokia 3210 and 8850. more than two colours on a screen is cringe. also: network time should be automagically got from mobile network if a sim card is in it. internet access is also bloat.

    I thought about getting a dumb phone in the past, but quickly realized it's not worth it. It's much better to make your smart phone "dumb" by uninstalling the useless shit you don't need (like social media apps) and only leaving the things you need. Google Maps is a good example of something that I really need but can't have on a dumb phone.

    Is there a reason you couldn't just use smart phone as a tool without browsing tiktok 24/7?

    I still can phone and text on my 3310, living in burgerland must be a pain in the ass without 3G.

    Just get a base-model iPhone, uninstall most apps, put it to greyscale.

    Same can be done with some custom rom android phone, but they require some tinkering when they break. Wasted too much time flashing roms.

    Dumb phones are such a huge meme, just get whatever cheap smartphone you find and uninstall all non essential apps, if you're too weak to not install them back then just uninstall the playstore with adb.
