I don't like to pay for features I'm not gonna use, s that hard for a company to make a good cell that only makes calls (with 3g or above technology so I can make international calls with no problem) sends text messages and have fast and functional agenda? With all the tech that is popping out of nowhere everyday it shouldn't be a big deal.
And it would be cheap.
First you imply you wanted a simple phone, then you say its too simple. Sorry, but it sounds like you're arguing in circles.
Cars didn't always come with air bags, it was an add on feature that eventually became a standard. Texting wasn't always something that came with a cell phone either.
Times change, and you're not paying for features you're not going to use. Extra features become standards, and you have an option use it or ignore it.
No its not hard to make a phone that only makes calls, there are plenty designed to just make calls.
Seems to me your stance is on wanting a simple phone but you also want to look "cool." If you're reluctant to pay more for a phone that does more than make calls and text, most carriers offer phones that does calls and text for free with a two year contract or you can find those phones on eBay for 100 bucks.
Simply put, these "extras" you're complaining about are becoming standards on all phones. YOU'RE NOT FORCED TO USE THEM.
