full keyboard-no data for older people

My mom has become quite the "texter". I pay for her phone and we have att. I am out of my "strong hold" contract so I just want to purchase her a cell phone from a 3rd party that has a full keyboard but does not have a data plan. Can anyone recommend a easy to use full keyboard, no-data plan phone that would be great for someone over 65? Simple -- she only does call/voice mail and text and a picture once in a while. Thanks so much. I am just not a tech type girl but want to make her life easier and I can't imagine doing a text with the old flip phones. Have a great day! Snow here in Tahoe--AGAIN> 🙂

You don't need a 'third party' you just buy whatever you want at full price or get something on eBay.

There are many Quick Messaging phones (full keyboard, non-smartphone) on AT&T. None of those require a data plan. If you do not wish to enter a contract, you can purchase at full retail from AT&T, may be able to get direct from the manufacturer, or try your luck on the web.

The Pantech Impact is a great phone for messaging. It is a flip/slider phone, but it has a full QWERTY keyboard and does not require a data plan.

Fear not - your thumbs will never be bored again. The Sanyo Innuendo┞¢ by Kyocera is a virtual playground for text-happy digits. Flip it open sideways to expose a large 2.8-inch display and full QWERTY keyboard for quick texts. Or shoot off status updates on your favorite social networking sites such as Facebook® or MySpace with dedicated social networking tiles and emoticon shortcut keys. Plus, with Sprint One Click you can customize your phone with the things you use most - email, music, GPS navigation and Web with Google Search┞¢. It's a must-have for anyone with places to go and people to see.
