    Why is it so FRICKEN hard to get a cell phone with no extras?
    My work requires me to have (if I bring it to work) a cell with
    no camera, no IR, and no USB connection. My cell has become my
    only means of contact in most cases, I dare not leave it at home.
    I've emailed my provider MANY times and asked them to keep
    some phones on the market that I can actually use. No luck.
    Any suggestions???

    A pager for when you are at work.

    But it's a small bill.
    I keep my phone line busy all day. I got a pager (before a cell) so family could reach me.
    I think it was $70 for a year. Cheap....I bet it's less now.

    Look for an older, used cell phone perhaps. Maybe e-bay?

    Ask some friends if they have old phones lying around that you could reactivate.
