Just cracked my Samsung Galaxy S2. No upgrade to iPhone 5 for a year so I'm considering that I try going back to an older flip phone and see how that idea fares for me. I can easily buy a new S2 but I really don't like this overload of technology. I see a lot of older people still stuck on dialers (what niggas call flip phones) and I really never saw the usefulness in not upgrading to newer models. Then I read somewhere that Andrew Luck doesn't use a hi-tech cell phone. He's a smart guy, so I'm sure he has legitimate reasons. What should I expect if I go back to a non-web access non-multimedia phone? Thoughts?

EDIT: Staying with Samsung. Just realized that white boys can pull off the whole retro style, but black guys come off as broke fuckboys if they do that same mode. Can't pull out a Nokia brick on a girl without the pussy drying up. Believe that.

If you do more talking than you do texting then just get a flip phone. The thing is flip phones are so obsolete and lack so many capabilities smart phones have.

When my blackberry tour got fucked up almost  2 years ago I had to downgrade to a Nokia flip phone that was a batman dark night edition. And let me tell you I honestly fucking loved it. The battery would just last for days. It was simple and just exactly what I needed to do. Make calls and text. I really hated having to click on a number 3 times just to get to my desired letter but I got a hold of how to properly use the T9 or "word" is what it was called on my Verizon phone. It was cool I always tell people that I enjoy those kind of phones but I use a smartphone only due to I'm on the Internet on it more than my computer. 

Cons: shitty camera lol

Damn I thought I was gonna catch heat for this. Glad to know I'm not the only one who feels the way I do.

As for multimedia, I don't listen to music on my current phone anymore, and I am thinking about purchasing a gramophone player and just buying LPs for when I'm at home. I just don't enjoy this culture of instant gratification and the enabling technology. Yes, a typewriter is not out of the question, although I'd still log on just to kick it with everyone on here.

I been back on my flip phone shit.
My at&t shit phone cost $30 to replace so I gives no fucks.
All that extra ain't even worth it.
I use my phone to make calls that's it. I got a laptop for all that extra shit.
Wise move.

Flip phones are really well-built and great for calling. Plus, they go for dirt cheap (~$30).

Texting is another issue.
