If you're looking for a simple cell phone, it's hard to find one simpler -- or cheaper -- than the simple Samsung M400. The basic flip phone comes free with a new two-year service agreement, after a $50 mail-in rebate.

Features are intentionally sparse on the M400, and include a 2.4-inch internal display, large dial pad buttons, and emergency settings to call 911 and your selected ICE (in case of emergency) contacts.

Voice dialing is fairly standard on even the most straightforward of phones, but Samsung has added text-to-speech readout capability that voices a variety of information, including menus, text, phone numbers, and caller ID.
