No camera. Doesn't play MP3s. Or movies. Or do texting. Or browse the net. Or much of anything but make phone calls. So there aren't a lot of features waiting to jump out at you and confuse things when you JUST WANT TO MAKE A CALL.

Got one for mom and she's quite pleased with it. After buying the phone, basic service is under $20/month.
I’m not offended by it; and Jack might like it. I am rather attracted to the gimmicks, but not at the price-per-gimmick level I have seen so far.

If I were a betting woman, though, I suspect I might fall for something someday. What puts me off is the need to marry a phone service for several years in order to play with a phone.
