Phones for the rest of us?

by DrFrito    May 20, 2011, 8:38 AM

Are there any new phones coming out for normal plans?
I saw the post below about new phones coming but I think those are all smart phones?

USCellular is killing me. My wife wanted texting so they talked her into changing plans. Now our bill went up to ~100. They "swear" there's no way to get our old plan back.

Now, the thing is, out of all their phones, I guess I only have the choice of 4 of them? We got Banters, but they don't work very well out here. I'm guessing its an LG problem as her old one did that too. I had a Razr VM3 and it was great. (broken) Unfortunately USCellular is the only cellular company out here.

She wants to keep her banter so far. There's no way I'm keeping mine. So for a texting phone I can choose the Messager? I played with it once and it was hard to use, poor touch-screen and so forth.

So since they now jacked our bill up $30 per month, in order to get a texting phone that works for me I have to get a smart phone? That would put my bill at $100 more than my old one.

Thanks very much for any suggestions
