        and for 50 bucks more you can have an infinitely better user experience when texting and taking pictures/videos and the option to use smartphone features whenever you want. Battery on my 5 year old moto G still lasts for like 4 days on a charge because I don't really do any smartphone stuff with it. iirc I paid 120 bucks for it brand new. I don't break or lose my phones because 99% of the time it's in my pocket or on my desk.

    I got a smartphone and de-Googled it. But what a lot of people ITT miss is that the biggest thing you can do is to not have it in your pocket all the time. I leave it at home unless I know, for certain, in advance, that I'll have to use it. The cancerous thing is the expectation in modern society that everyone should be reachable instantly at all times, and should drop whatever they're doing to respond to a notification. We need to go back to a world where you might try to call/text/message someone and they just aren't there, and you have no reasonable expectation that they'll respond sooner than a day or three.

      I don’t understand why we can’t just have as many phones as we want with the same phone number, so I can just leave the house with the dumb phone or smart phone when needed. Companies are switching to e-sim cards anyway so what’s holding them back from giving us like 5 e-sims for one phone number to use on whatever phone we want? It can’t be much different than how you can get the same iMessage or FaceTime and reply on any Apple device that has a connection to the internet.

      Agreed. I use a smartphone for work but I intentionally ignore things simply to remind my clients that I am not at their beck and call every moment of the day. I will respond to things quickly if it is actually urgent and I am not doing anything else, which is almost never. Otherwise I rarely even answer phonecalls - I'll sit and watch it go to voicemail, and I will call back later when it is convenient to me. My typical responses for non-urgent things are same-day for texts (you will wait at least 30 minutes, but could be 6-12 hours), next-day for emails, and voicemail within 2-5 business days.

      My main use for a smartphone is that I can treat it as an extension of my office for calls/emails when I am on the road, and I typically travel for work about 3 days per week. If I had a job where I was always in the office when working I would just have a landline for business, a desktop for email/etc, and I wouldn't have a personal phone at all.

    I keep my current one until it breaks, don't use it much and it's degoogled, still hate it but I have it so might as well get as much out of it as possible.

    It's good to have the basics, alarms, calc, some kind of a camera when I'm without a real one, music, some kind of internet access but I don't need more than that, well I don' really "need" even that but it's nice to have I can compromise a bit, I'm just really tired of the "You know you can pay with your phone too/You should download the app/Can you add on whatsapp".
    When I first got a smartphone it was something cool I wanted for myself when everyone told me I was a moron for spending that much on phone that's worse at being a phone than a real phone, meanwhile now it's the opposite so I've got no use for one anymore, it's not only boring but extremely annoying being expected to have a current one, frick that.

    When it breaks I'll switch to an old iPod touch, WP or Blackberry or some shit, smart enough to have all the conveniences i'd like, dumb enough to avoid all the modern cancer.

    Do yourself a favor, get a pixel 6a with GrapheneOS. It's a dumbphone by default with zero distractions. You can make it as smart as you want. Need a certain messaging app, sure install it. Need a navigation app, sure install it. Restrict network permission for anything else and you have the best dumb phone tailered to your needs for a cheaper price than these so called advertised dumbphones.

            Sure but what is the actual problem with that? Yes their services are shit spyware but most of their base software is FOSS, like AOSP and chromium, both pixels and Chromebooks are very friendly towards using FOSS software for both the OS and boot firmware on the Chromebooks specifically. Almost any alternative is inferior in every way and forces you to run their proprietary software and connect to their spyware services, which Google does not.

    Why would I pay hundreds of dollar for what's essentially a flip phone?
    Just keep your smartphone and have some discipline to not be staring at it 24/7

      >have some discipline
      dont bother, zoomers dont understand that. These are the same people that want the government to forgive student loans they knowingly took out, and claim they can never buy a house...yet give half their income to twitch streamers. Being responsible for their own self, is a foreign concept to them, Thats what this whole thread is about shifting the blame for their lack of self control to others, and trying to get a device to force the situation instead of having self control

    i flashed lineage OS 20 on my pixel and tried to go as long as possible without using any Gapps and it fricking sucked. google maps is so good its not even close.
    >b-but muh openstreetmap/osmand+/organic maps
    its not good. it'll take you to the street but you'll have to find the actual address yourself. eventually i just ended up going back to stock rom
    ps if youre worried about glowies spying on you, installing something like grapheneOS or TailsOS will make your internet traffic stand out like a sore thumb. its easier to just use normie software and not do anything moronic online.

    Distractions? I don't have distractions in my smartphone, I only have stuff I use when I need it. That's what they're there for.
    Sounds like you have the problem where instead of you using a smartphone, the smartphone is using you.

    The entire internet bores me. My current phone battery literally lasts 4 days because I never use it. When I sit down on the toilet I often stare at my phone and there’s nothing to even do besides read an ebook. I don’t read the news anymore, have no social media, few people I need to text, no videos I want to watch, no games I enjoy. I literally just have a smart phone to message my mom and my wife and answer a phone call once a week. So even if so I had a dumb phone, I’d just leave the house and nothing would change. I don’t care about listening to music, don’t need maps because I know my way around. I also built a $2,000 PC and was so excited to fire it up. I sat there staring as the dopamine rush drained out of me and realized there’s nothing I have to do on the computer. Same with my $2,500 MacBook. I’ll never play the games I bought. Never record an album on my Mac, never edit the hours of video footage I took that was imported from my mirrorless cameras. I’ll never import my stack of mini dv tapes from college. After using the internet for 30+ years I’m kind of over it. This is the only site I visit, and it’s awful.

    I know a homeschooled girl that used a phone like this on campus. She doesn't have instagram/pinterest/vsco/snapchat or any other social media and she's fricking bawd for dating all the guys at the engineering building lol think about how more crazy she would've been if she don't have a dumbphone

      At least she's fricking the engineers and not the basketball team like a media poisoned female would.

    Anons, don't let your country give up on cash. It's almost functionally impossible to have anything but an iPhone or (approved, updated) Android phone in Sweden because you can't pay cash anywhere, and the only alternative outside of debit/credit is our mobile payment service. Which requires an app and an approved SIM. Farmers markets and craftspeople for example only take the app. It's terrible.

    What networks do these dumb phones use? I assume GSM and it's still available? won't it be phased out?

      new dumbphones are on the same 4g/lte networks as any current year iphone/android. the actual good & worthwhile dumbphones from yesteryear were on 2g/edge/3g and don't work in the US anymore.

    I feel people who, like, actively hate their smartphones, are just using them wrong.

    Take, for example, Instagram. We all know reels are dumb and addictive and comparing yourself to other people is "toxic" or whatever. But - hear me out - Instagram is also the best dating app out there, if you use it a certain way which isn't hard to figure out. Have a presentable profile and message any girl you know or want to know without any swiping.

    Or the despised Teams and Outlook combo. One can say it's invasive and annoying to have your work following you everywhere. Or one can... use it to still be "present" when you're done with work and need to run some errands or travel. Save time, don't stay near the laptop all the time.

    Messaging apps? No one is forcing you to check them all the time. Only keep the people your care about in your contacts. Disable notifications for a period of time or altogether and only check them manually.

    All the other apps? Just don't install them. Frick Instagram even, don't install nothing social and time stealing. It's called free will and self control. If you find yourself distracted it's because you wanted to be distracted.

    just uninstalled a lot of apps, put only the strict necessary on the homepage and set a solid color wallpaper
    training myself to use the phone just to talk with friends and listen to music made me a lot more productive without spending a lot of money in a dumbphone that i can't use for work/uni/important chats
    US-gays can chat with only sms?
    here is impossible because everyone uses whatsapp
