A phone just for communication! No frills! Just call and text!
Answered

Lately I've been to into my smartphone and I want to get rid of that. I figured why not get a phone for just basic text and call. I want a full qwerty keyboard and the best phones I could think about would be BlackBerry. So that brings me to my point. Would a Old blackberry9330 work from Verizon through ting? How about the even older BlackBerry curve 8520? If these devices are not supported. Are there any BASIC phones with a qwerty keyboard that are? Please let me know

  • Are you looking sat using Ting CDMA (Sprint) or Ting GSM (T-Mobile)? Ting does not require smartphones to have data enabled, unlike the larger carriers.
    A Verizon phone will not work on Ting CDMA. If unlocked, it may have limited functionality on Ting GSM.

  • Thank you for the reply. But I remembered that I had an old sanyo incognito that was collecting dust. I was a little surprised to see it compatible with ting. Now I have have a two device ecosystem. Hopefully that will help me accomplish my goal of having a phone for only dire situations and having another for play. My current handset is a T-Mobile LG G Flex that I recently unlocked... Due to its size and good media output I shall make this a device for all my music/games/movies/ social media etc. Stritcly through wifi and hopefully take my overal screen on time down while saving a lot of money.. My bill is around $90 a month
