Non-smartphones

I'm due for an upgrade with Verizon. It seems to me like Verizon focused all of their attention to smartphones because all of the non-smartphones are very unimpressive. I have an enV touch and this phone looks much better than the rest of the non-smartphones that Verizon offers right now. I don't want to pay for the monthly data plan. Does anyone know of any decent non-smartphones out there right now? or any non-smartphones that will soon come out?

But one thing.

I can't tell what would impress you. Is it looks for a phone that just works well and doesn't need a charge every day?

If you're happy with your current phone ...

can you continue using that? Might be cheaper (although I don't know Verizons policies for renewal).

The problem is...

...carriers makes money from data. I believe for this reason you are SOL. Find a non-smartphone that you can live with if you need an upgrade now. Don't expect the non-smartphone offering to get any better- it's likely to get worse IMNSHO.
