Our cell phone has more capabilities than we need, but we keep this 5 year old phone because upgrading will cost us about $10 more a month, plus requiring a new contract. We are "grandfathered" in an old contract at a lower rate, and I want to stay with it.
Jack had one of those deals, but this year that told him he had to switch to a current arrangement and get a new phone, so he canceled.

I have seen ads for a very simple phone, with a funny name that I can’t remember. You sign up with the seller and pay either $10 or $15 a month, depending on plan. The phone is fairly large by today’s standards, and has no camera or other extra features. And I have no idea about its range.
