Anyone still using a basic keypad phone? Pic related but not mine(some guy on /g/).

I've been thinking about picking up Cat B100 or one of those Chinese Lenovo flip phones.


Yeah. I'm using some Samsung dumb phone that I got for free. I need to figure out how to unlock the SIM card so I can upgrade to a nicer dumb phone like that one pictured. Dumb phones are really great cause they can take a lot of abuse and their batteries last for a long time.


Still using same Nokia I got 13 years ago. Although cosmetic condition of it is not too impressive, phone itself works fine.
I like that Cat phone you mentioned, looks sturdy and simple.


Using Nokia 1101 (the one with white backlight) for couple years now. Bought it after realizing I don't use my smartphone for anything but calls.

Ordered the SDeals SD100, $17 dumb phone. Should be here Tuesday, so I'll have some pics and small write up. The casing looks cheap as hell(although it's described as being a durable phone), but it had a fairly tactile numerical pad and MP3 player. You would think an MP3 player would be a basic feature nowadays, but I found a couple of phones that lacked it, two of which were Nokia and LG phones, to my surprise. I almost got the Nokia 105, but cancelled the order after reading bad reviews on it.

For $17, it's not bad, but I can't recommend it if you're looking for something that will last. As predicted, the build quality is poor, and it would surely be damaged if it were to take a fall onto a hard surfaced area. But everything else seems okay. Battery is still full after a day's use, MP3 player works well enough, although the included headphones are going in the garbage. I was happy when I set my custom 128 x 160 anime background from some ancient cell phone wallpapers site.

*sorry for hand in pic, it was the only way I could get decent lighting >.<

>>512 Hey, that's a nice phone.
Mine is similar, it's the BLU Tank Plus 2 T530. I like it, setting it up was easy enough, and it does what I want it to do. I even got my cute Tomoko wallpaper on this little 128x160 screen. Not the best out there, but it gets the job done.

Oops, here's the outer pic.


I do, but i don't know what type of phone is it exactly, too lazy to take it apart. can't take a photo of the current one because its my only phone too. its nokia tho. i used to have n70 but it broke

I managed to get opengapps and google play store working on a blackberry q10. The android version is 4.4 but it hasn't caused me any issue for my needs. It's nice because it's so small & light yet it has a full keyboard.

picked up a 3310 yesterday

it's a little expensive for a dumbphone($60), and still runs a really basic OS. Most new dumbphones out there are running KaiOS now, which I'm curious about since they sit in a nice middle ground of functionality.


Went looking for one of these sites and the first one immediately started trying to download a 10gb .bin file called "10GB.BIN" lole


The best phone I've ever had.
f-droid works like a charm too.


I've been meaning to pick up a Nokia KaiOS flip-phone, but I've seen some hearsay about how it's kinda buggy, but it also kinda seems to vary from device to device, which seems weird.

But the app-system seems really cool, like something I could write apps for myself since it isn't locked in to the most bloated corp-lang in existance (looking at you android). Instead just web-type stuff.

Does anyone here use a KaiOS phone? I'm tempted to cop one for tinkering's sake but I've heard it's buggy as shit.

I'd love to buy the sh-06a (nerv edition bcs it's pretty) when I'll enter uni
but I read that it needs a "hypersim" to work with overseas sim cards
it costs a lot (~50$ on ebay), so I'd like to know if it works correctly before buying (or if there is a cheaper alternative) (I don't know which terms to google, sorry)


I'm using LG Folder 1 (LG Wine) now. Sadly, Its OS is based on Android. But highly restricted one. You can't install .apk files in common way. However, You can enable ADB debugging mode via developer option which can be enabled in uncommon way – typing hidden code in dialer. But you must change the applications' part to com.LG* if you really want to install on it. Furthermore, you can't use many applications because of low resolution and low dpi.

So, I'm pretty sure it can be a dumbphone. Focused on call and SMS/MMS.
Camera is shit though, but thankfully AF is supported.
I guess battery running time is better than older dumbphones. Because its AP (Qualcomm Snapdragon 210) has little bit (or significantly) better performance per watt.

The nice thing of this shit is supported VoLTE.
The country where I'm living now doesn't use English as mother language.
So I'm afraid to buy Nokia dumbphones (kaiOS) from foreign countries because of lack of langauge *intput methods* support.

And the LG phone is supported it, officially released in this country. Also supported VoLTE. This country is trying to get rid of 3G. Of course it still works perfectly – perfectly..? no. it just still works though.

So I should move to VoLTE supported phone before IPS gonna kick out the 3G, when they say "Fuck off old protocols" at the same time.


Here they murdered 3G already, sad times for my phones. But standard GSM is here to stay so really no need to invest into VoLTE or other bullcrap.


re-reading this and I'm realising this post might surely come off as rude
I'm sorry if that's the case, english is (obviously) not my mother language :(


Know I'm a bit late, but maybe answer will be of use to someone else anyway.
Been using a Nokia 2720 for a while now, which uses KaiOS.
Haven't really encountered any bugs really, but there's a significant lag in just general usage, and some things are not up to the standard of older dumb phones (smart phones only started becoming common in my mid teens).
Even just moving down the contact list can sometimes take what feels like a full second before it responds to the input. Not sure if this is particular to the model or a general KaiOS thing.

The T9 input method is kinda trash too, in comparison to how they used to work. Word order doesnt change in according to how often they're used, it's just a static order, and there's often garbage that aren't even words to skip over in order to reach the intended word. And since it's static, you'll have to do that every single time. Used to be quite fast at regular old-school T9, but it's just not possible on the KaiOS one because of all the extraneous input needed.

I wouldn't interpret it as rude, would guess you haven't gotten any response simply because nobody knows. First time I ever heard of a hypersim.


>I wouldn't interpret it as rude, would guess you haven't gotten any response simply because nobody knows.
ah, thanks then, I was mostly worried about the, hum, direct tone of my post
I'm also a new sushi (if I got that correctly) here, that's why I thought I could have been a bit more polite
>First time I ever heard of a hypersim.
afaik it's like a layer you put over your sim card, which will make your phone think it's a Japanese one
but I also read about disconnects during calls and such °~°


oh I tried something like that about 10 years ago, it didn't work right at the time. Temporarily it would allow you to use the Japanese phone, but after a while it would stop receiving signal until you put the SIM back into your other phone.

Might have been my carrier rejecting it for being an unrecognized device or something though.

If you're in America, part of the VoLTE rollout there is to only allowing whitelisted devices, so it's not really possible to use phones from other markets anymore.


ow, that doesn't sound promising
thanks for telling me!
I live in europe and my sim card doesn't seem to deactivate depending on the phone, though

buying a keitai is a difficult task, but maybe that's the charm of it lol
