Best new dumbphone for prepaid Tmobile?

by aa9 / February 19, 2013 1:37 AM PST

I only want to use the phone (I don't care about camera, texting, web) but that doesn't mean I want a cheep piece of trash. Any ideas for a high quality phone - meaning good sound, good design, easy to use, good battery life? I use the pay as you go tmobile now ( just the wireless service) and am happy with that service. I'm happy to pay $100 for something that will last a few years. Can I use a smartphone for calls without internet?

Or something so close I can't tell the difference. The standard flip phone works fine for those that just need a phone.

Don't get caught in the camera trap. That is, one poor fellow could not ignore the camera. They removed some very good flip phones because it had a camera. They didn't have a good reason such as "work doesn't allow it" but we could choose to ignore features we don't use.
