I found my old samsung slide phone and my immediate thought was "wow, this thing is so small and convenient" and then I remember that I had to charge the battery ever 2 weeks and I realized that smart phones all suck ass. Here is what is going to take over

People are going to have Dumb Phones and Mobile data enabled tablets.

You're going to have a hundred dollar dumb phone that surpasses every smart phone on earth in battery life and size which you pay 20$ a month for then you're going to go buy a cheap nexus phone for 300$ om which you will then throw a tablet sim card in for 25$ a month that's how it's going to go down.

I've already considered doing this. I want to get a dumb phone to use as a phone and deactivate my smart phone and use it just for podcasting.

I threw my phone at the wall and broke it and was forced to use this old dumb flip phone. IT would be awesome except the texting is so ludicrously poorly designed that it's almost awe inspiring. How did anybody text each other in the early to mid 2000s? My inbox has a max of 50 messages that it doesn't arrange by conversation. I get more than 50 messages in a day.

I can only speak for myself but I didn't text people. But then I still don't

The only thing that regularly use my data connect for is GPS directions and Pandora.

I've been predicting for a while the growth of a new subculture that will reject lots of the technology and social media trends that have grown lately. As the surveillance state grows and we become more aware of it, and facebook/twitter/pinterest become grandmas favorite pastime, look for more people to engage in activities like using non-smart phones, reading physical books, removing themselves from social media outlets, unsubscribing from cable, etc.
Never argue with stupid people. They will drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

No, posting on forums dates back to the non-smart phone era so it will be ok. Forums like INTL that still don't have a mobile app will especially thrive.

The first mobile phone I ever got, I still use. It's a Samsung flip phone. It took me about five months to bother to activate it, and it gets maybe two calls a month, but about twenty to thirty texts. Texting is pretty tedious, but I don't text anything more complicated than "Home. Good night." or "We're meeting at [place] at [time]. Hope you can make it." As a result, it's convenient for what it does, and it costs about a hundred dollars every eight or nine months.

On the other hand, it randomly loses reception, sends blank voicemails to itself any time it moves to a new area code, and the alarm no longer works properly for some reason after about seven and a half years of use. Oh well.
