Default Moblie Phones without internet access?

Does anybody on here have a phone that cannot connect to the internet / WiFi?

I've currently got a (cheap) smart phone but I want to down grade to a phone that only does calls and texts and it's doing my head in trying to find one!

The ones I've found that don't have any access won't work on 3G which most networks are on, then the ones that do the phones are still capable of accessing the net even tho the browsers are shit, you can still connect.

I'd get rid of my phone entirely if I could but i'm a carer for my Dad so need one for emergencies.

ALCATEL 1054X which I have.
Still using Lenovo Tablet but not going out with that as much as phone.
I think it's a good price but forgot what it was.

Good on ya, wish I could be without the internet on my phone. I don't need it on my phone though nor am I addicted to it, but it's always there when I need it, same with the mobile phone itself, i could live without it except that I need it as I'm a carer and need mainly for it. I wish more people could do the same. Speaking of tablets, but why do people when out in public feel the need to film or take photos using their bloody 10" tablet rather than a regular camera or small phone?. They look stupid when taking videos or photos with it in public. When I watching my child's nativity play I used my point and shoot digital camera, yet everyone else was using their phones, and one woman had this whopping tablet Infront of her face. AIways try to use my regular digital camera or DSLR to take photos as I just think a phone is just a phone not a friggin camera, but for most people it's all about convenience and having everything on one device. I would even go back to the old fashioned film camera as I love the film look over digital, and also whentheyve been developed the processed photos look very professional and on very good photographic lab paper not that shitty paper you use at Asda when printing all of your 500 plus photos, which jpthe colours her face very quickly, but imagine walking into your Max Spielmann these days and asking them to develop a roll of film, theyd think you've lost the plot lol. I've got old photos stored at least 50 yrs old and the colour is still there, yet alot of self printed digital photos are showing colour fade.

How about just turning your WiFi off in the settings?, or will that not stop it?. I think to most people taking drastic measures like that by reverting back to an old phone would be seen as a tad paranoid.

Just buy a PAYGO non-smartphone...cost probably about 76p and it makes calls and send text. If you want to go on the internet you could with it but the screen is so small...

My phone, and many before have always had the option of turning off the Internet.

With that in mind, just fully turn off your phone and only turn it on when you want to make a call.
This way you will get any messages or texts in one go.

It's not rocket science! If you also only turn it back on when you get home. Like before, once folk realise that you can't be reached before you arrive home to check the messages then the ball is back in your court.

I've already said I'm a carer and need it on and with me for emergencies, which could happen at any time of day or night.

True, it's just my current network is 3g, and everything will be going 3g in a couple of years.

From what I understood, you just wanted the ability to just make calls. I was suggesting that most phones can tun off the Web.

One way might be to get an ordinary phone, but have a very low Internet access. Place a block on over use!

My daughter has one. TBH I was going to get one myself as I dont tend to use the phone for internet access.

I think the model is a samsung galaxy young.

Which are nice except anybody with a walkie talkie on that frequency can listen in. Im sure in the UK you can only get VHF as UHF is generally military radio.
