Re: Amazon
was just thinking about how it is legal for amazon to go on a PR campaign and prioritize hospitals and healthcare over their prime members if we pay every month for our prime benefits of 2-day shipping. has this been discussed already? is there going to be a class action lawsuit?
This is typical liberal generosity; doing good with other people's money.

Are they planning on making it for sprint also? otherwise what would you recommend as the best flip phone for sprint?

The Tmobile one supports the Sprint bands but you have to see if it works.

Re: Hertz free-to-go-pass
Im not so sure, i wouldnt lay out $100 for that chance, it hasnt happened to me in the past and is not something i am too worried about. would you buy 100 dollars of insurance for that eventuality? it seems expensive.
If you dont want to deal with the hassle in the first place then i understand that it might be worth to pay for the service, but again, i dont see myself paying $100 for someone to fill up my tank.

List of Many Flip Phones. (No smartphones)
A lot of the descriptions is my opinion.
Feel free to let me know if you differ, or if there is info missing/wrong.
Please like if this helps you.
LG Exalt LTE VN220 – Verizon

•   Can be  koshered: Yes

Compatible Networks;
•   Verizon (4g)
•   ATT (3g),
•   T-Mobile (2g, bad reception)

One of the most popular flip phones. Well-known Brand. No button lag. Overall decent phone.
 No outside screen, awkward shape, very delicate, suffers from durability issues
Not sold anymore. Street price is over $300. Going to be replaced with the LG Wine 2 LTE (Exalt 2 LTE?)

LG Wine LTE (U.S. Cellular)

Can be  koshered: Yes

Same as the LG Exalt LTE but works with ATT 4g. Not compatible with Verizon (small changes  like different massaging app and fm radio) Also not sold. Replaced by the LG Wine 2 LTE

LG Wine 2 LTE (U.S. Cellular)

Compatible Networks; ??

Successor to the LG Wine LTE, this phone added an outside screen (!!!) and an SOS button. Camera was downgraded to 2mp from 5, and lost autofocus (think Kyocera Cadence res).  Screen and body was shrunk a little to make it a little less unwieldly to hold.At the moment only available from U.S. Cellular (midwest US). Probably will show up soon on Verzion (albeit wiith a new name, and higher price tag.)

Kyocera Cadence LTE S2720 & S2720PP

•   Can be  koshered: Yes

Compatible Networks;
•   Verizon (4g)
•   ATT (3g),
•   T-Mobile (2g, bad reception)
PP Version must be unlocked before using with Verizon Postpaid/Other Networks

Overall solid phone by somewhat reputable brand. Has an outer screen to show show who is calling, but lacks video camera & playback. Camera quality could be better. Durability is pretty good. Software update finally fixed some t9 input issues Overall solid kosherable option. Also not sold by Verizon anymore. Street price of about $150

Kyocera DuraXV LTE

•   Can be  koshered: Yes

Compatible Networks;
•   Verizon (4g)
•   ATT (3g),
•   T-Mobile (2g, bad reception)

Similar to Kyocera Cadence above but in a massive, rugged package. And added video playback capability.

Kyocera DuraXV Extreme
MSRP: $240

•   Can be  koshered: Yes.

Compatible Networks; (Assumed)
•   Verizon (4g)
•   ATT (3g),
•   T-Mobile (2g, bad reception)

Successor to the DuraXV above. More rugged, Thicker, Heavier. Now with USB-C!

Kazuna eTalk

•   Can be  koshered: Yes

Compatible Networks;
•   Verizon (4g)

A cheap prepaid phone made by a company that has a Chinese website. Can be purchased for under $40 but must be activated in the prepaid network to work. Has poor reviews but seems to be an okay phone/operating system.

Alcatel Go Flip V
MSRP: $99

•   Can be  koshered: Yes

Compatible Networks;
•   Verizon (4g)

Slow & buggy Verizon phone. Changes back to ABC instead of T9 every time you create a new message, and no way to add words to t9 dictionary. Button presses take a while to register. Poor Quality

Orbic Journey V
MSRP: $99

•   Can be  koshered: Yes

Compatible Networks;
•   Verizon (4g)

Another no-name brand with a slow buggy phone. Extremely poor quality. Avoid

Schok Classic Flip
MSRP: $99 Available at Target

•   Can be  koshered: Yes (Tag-No, Meshimer-Yes)

Compatible Networks;
•   Verizon (4g)
•   ATT (4g),
•   T-Mobile (4g)

A large, highly compatible flip phone from a company that at least looks like its trying. Finally a viable T-Mobile option. Nice display, Impressive camera, and USB-C  docking/charging. Feels laggy and a bit buggy sometimes. A little bit more smatphone-ish than others as it has a, sometimes convoluted , Google Play store and a Virtual Mouse to input touches on apps. Software updates keep improving the phone so there is hope…

NUU Phone

Compatible Networks;
Verizon (4g)

Verizon Flip phone sold koshered on and direct from Wing.
I don’t have any specific info on this product

Alcatel Go Flip ATT  T-MOBILE

Sorry  don’t have exact models all the iterations of these.
Old version- Horrible. Contacts and calling app broken
New Version Go Flip 3- Big improvement
Has Google maps and assistant, will be removed when koshered though.
There is a cricket version that was advertised on already koshered on ebay for $60 seems to be okay.

Coolpad Snap
4g Sprint Flip Phone. Bad Phone. Can’t be koshered

ZTE Cymbal
Different versions for Verizon prepaid and T-Mobile. Phone is Okay, Can’t be koshered, But available to buy already kosher in Lakewood.

Other niche options you may want to look into
Light phone ii $350 E-ink phone
Punkt MP02                      

In Short (for most people)

Verizon- Buy the Kyocera Cadence
ATT- Schok /Alcatel Go Flip 3/Kyocera Cadence
T-Mobile- Schok /Alcatel Go Flip 3/
Sprint- Get a new service. You’re getting cheap service without a device to use it on

Why is there so many garbage phones?
Why are the big brands reluctant to make decent phones?
Why did LG and Kyocera stop making such popular devices? 
Did Verizon ask for cheaper phones to make them more accessible? To make an even bigger profit?
And why can’t we get some normal phones like the old 3g devices? LG Revere, Samsung Gusto, etc. Durable, solid, reliable, NO BUGS! Maybe even… dare I ask for… a qwerty keyboard!
Why do people use sprint if there’s no phones?
What will happen to all the active old sprint 3g devices after T-Mobile/Sprint merger?

Full Disclosure: I currently use an LG OCTANE 3g Verizon Keyboard Phone and I love it. That’s gonna have to change by the end of 2020… but if you put things into perspective, that’s AFTER the November elections. Who knows if Trump will even be president?

I would love if someone knows the answers to some of these questions.

Re: Lakewood covid cases
Still working on firm confirmation. However, I've been continuously hearing people ("on the street") talking about a big spike of stillborns.
Indian chief is asked about the rain season for the coming year. Unsure what to say, he tells his people that there will be an increase in rainfall, which prompts them to begin an extra collection of firewood.

Wishing to see if he was correct, the Indian chief calls the National Weather Service, and he is pleasantly surprised to learn that there is indeed a big hurricane season planned. So he calls back the elders and tells them that his intuition tells him there will be terrible storms, and they begin unprecedented firewood collection efforts.

Still doubting himself, the chief calls the NWS back and is once again assured that the coming year will bring storms that the country has never seen.

“Are you absolutely sure?” he asks.

“One hundred percent,” the agent responds. “The Indians are collecting wood like crazy, and they are never wrong!”

Dude, the people on the street all get their news from DDF.

Re: Chase sapphire preferred 80,000 UR sign up bonus
I went thru the comments on DDMS and it looks like someone else said that the link is only 70000, to which @Dan responded that thats all it is. Im referring an immediate family member, is there any reason not to do the referral and get 70000 + 15000 or should i do the 80000 (besides for helping @Dan which i would if not for the 5000 point discrepancy)
Previously the refferal went up to 80k a while after the original offer.
But definitely consider using Dan's link.

Re: Kosherica Hyatt Grand Reserve Puerto Rico Pesach Program Shutdown Threatened
many are taught that antisemitism is inherent, all the goyim want to kill and destroy all the Jews, and since it’s already as bad as it can possibly get, nothing we do can make it worse, so there is no reason to bother.
I disagree with this. Nobody is taught that since they want to destroy us anyways let’s act like pigs.
the goyim want to kill and destroy all the Jews

Chasidim weren’t by seaworld ? Must’ve been photoshopped
Referring to PR where OP is witnessing the incidents. And I'd venture to say that even the ones in SeaWorld don't pride themselves in being taught "Gaava D'kdusha and disassociation".

Re: Chase sapphire preferred 80,000 UR sign up bonus

It's now available.

Can i put other apps on? The site apps4flip doesnt say which phone will work with their apps, do they all work?
All the apps from apps for flip will work plus many more apps. IF you want a different app go to downloads the app you want and out it on using webadb. (Not all apps will work, but many will)

Re: Friends don't let friends fly spirit. There are certain blanket attitudes on this forum that often don't take into account individuals' needs/desires. This crops up when discussing the value of points/miles, and blanket statements like "there is never a good reason to fly Spirit," which is all good and well until you need to book a flight at a busy time for the whole family and all other airlines are either sold out or charging more than 4 times the price, etc.

Re: Computer Troubleshooting/Help Master Thread
I am trying to install a driver on my computer but it says i need administrator access, but i am the administrator. I found something online through the command prompt but when i tried that it said access denied. Its possible i previously blocked the installation of new programs but i cant seem to find such a setting, if it even exist. Its most likely i missed something basic, any help would be appreciated
Did you try right-click and "Run as administrator"?

Re: Trying to install ADB and remove select features from my Flip phone? Any help ..
Also does anyone know how to uninstall a system app thru shell. when i try to do it typing "adb shell pm uninstall" etc. it gives me an error something like "adb not recognized" - is this a problem with the phone? i am using a sonim xp3. the same problem happens when i try to look up the packages.
If you are using webabd, you have to skip the "abd shell" in each formula.

Re: Are we going too far?
I think instead of vomiting an alphabet soup of letters for people who deserve special privileges, we should just adopt NASWM (not a straight white male)

The NASWM is up 100 points today in early trading.

Re: LG is quitting the smartphone business
I wonder if JIO will rise to the occasion and take the flip phone market over.
KaiOS has no chance. Seemingly, the reason it exists is to promote the liberal agenda of bringing internet to the less fortunate. From their blog posts, CEOs statements, etc it seems they are too busy patting themselves on the back to make a half decent operating sysytem. The funding comes from Google, who is desparate for a large enough 3rd party OS to prevent android from monopoly issues (look into the Google- kai partnership.... if it works too nicely it could cause serious competition- not what they have in mind :)

Jio is a carrier in India. very suprising if they sell phones in us
