Holiday Gift Guide 2012
For users who just want the simplest phone for emergencies or basic calls.
This individual is probably the type of person who simply doesn't care about cell phones or technology all that much. There are plenty of merits to living life in the (almost) analog age, rather than the full-on digital one. Rather than saddle them with a technical do-dad they'll let collect dust, give them the basic phone that they want or need. These devices are generally $50 or less, and often come free with a contract. They provide calling and messaging features, and not much else.
