I'm looking for a good old flip (dumb) phone for every day use.

I was always a Nokia fan. What would you guys recommend?
Are you carrier specific?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Unlocked is not enough information. An iPhone, or a Pixel works on all currently available networks or bands. I don't think that a flip phone exists which could work on any network. Once you know the network ,you can figure out what works. (Or do you also need it to work in the UK or other countries).

I guess you're right (trying to get into the minds of people 15 years ago).
Right now I'm on Cricket (AT&T). If it can work in the UK and other countries on unspecified networks that would be great but I don't expect to find that.

So for AT&T network you need something that works on their 3G bands.

First try to see what AT&T offers.

Lg A380 is a good phone,
Or you can try the ZTE Z320.

In Miami now with the Samsung Folder 2 and surprisingly 4G is working! Does it make sense AT&T has different bands here than in NY? Considering moving to Miami...
You can say what you think when you think what you say.

TERRIBLE battery life (especially when used as Hotspot), and despite running a crippled version of Android, won't sync contacts with Google account. Luckily Verizon has Message+ which allows me to text from other devices.

Oh do I wish for a flip phone with Apple build quality (and universal GSM and LTE band compatibility). Despite it's shortcomings, the ability to have a lightweight phone that can be operated with one hand, without having two eyes on it for dialing, and with good tactile feedback, is just difficult to give up.
