Same problem.
I'm looking for a GSM, 4G phone too.


Prefer no wifi.
Prefer full qwerty keyboard.
Prefer reliable connection, decent sound.


Who here knows old phones?

I see a ZTE Z432 Cell Phone  - AT&T -
A reviews say it works as a phone not on ATT but can't do data.

Do you think it would work on Tello?

There is no WiFi so just modify tello plan to zero data

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08Q1YWQQ9/ref=twister_B09GRMTR6T?_encoding=UTF8&th=1

not qwerty keyboard or flip but rudimentary


Question:Does this have access to social media apps? Trying or give my kid a phone but keep them off social media.

Answer 1:

This fits the bill. Only talking and texting. Not a smart phone or touchscreen; no internet or data. I believe it comes with a couple of games.

Don't bet that a tech-savvy kid wouldn't figure out how to have everything there.

If it doesn't have the hardware, it can't happen.
But it does have bluetooth.

Yup.  After reading lots of questions and answers on Amazon, I see there's wifi and internet possible.  A bad screen, but that's NOT no internet.

1.0 out of 5 stars This phone is not compatible with tmobile network.
Reviewed in the United States on October 31, 2021
Color: Light CharcoalVerified Purchase
The phone looks of decent quality for the price. I was able to use a sim card to try to call but only reached customer service and noted that they can't activate the phone on tombile's service. So if you are trying to buy this for T-mobile, DO NOT DO IT. It is well pass 30 days and I can't get a refund on it.
