U sure that it doesn't count as a smartphone according to Sprint?
pretty sure it's a smartphone (10/mo fee) it is, however, compatible with sero/legacy plans

Ya thought so.
Looking for the best phone around that doesn't pay the $10.

no its the last of smartphones. it just passes as a reg. phone as the chipset isn't high enough to be considered a smart phone (as told by sprint rep)

HTC TOUCH PRO2 can be activated with any plan but before you take it check it out if you like it because its really a 'smart' phone things twice on every click. VERY VERY SLOW! Personally i would recommend the LG lotus elite.
Short and to the point.

Need to buy a Sprint phone on Ebay for a techno-phobe.

Thoughts on best Sprint phone with only a keypad? i.e. no keyboard

Samsung is the way to go, IMHO. (I know you asked for a specific model, all I'm saying is that IME the Samsungs are more dependable than the Kyoceras, LGs, Motorolas, Sanyos etc.).

+1.

Speaking of Sprint non-smartphones I do find myself missing my Centro every now and then even with the latest and greatest Android.  Truly an underappreciated phone and OS.

Thanks for the recco. Will limit my search to the Sammies.

Anyone care to direct me to a specific model?

Is the Centro easy to use for techno-phobes? Should I be considering for this individual it even though it has a keyboard?

That is a POS 1st gen centro.  Get the 2nd gen Centro no matter what.

Thank you! ...and that's the reason I asked on DDF - didn't even know there were even two gens to be had.

1st gen (black and lipstick red) had poor build quality, a slower processor, and a fraction of the memory.
These (lime and rose) are the ones you want to look for:
