What are the best options for a basic phone with Verizon? Wish there was a wiki here...

LG VN220 lte from verizon is a high quality flip phone

From what I read, the Kyocera Cadence LTE supports even less bands than the VN220 (aka Exalt LTE). Based on specs It seems like its only (or main) advantage over the VN220 is an outside screen.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I dont see how to go to the home screen or review messages while talking on the phone. (you can compose and send emails while on the phone, but cant view them)

No email attachments

No tethering without a plan.
Seems like the list of pros is getting bigger,

On Kyocera cadence you can easily go to home screen, send/view messages while phone calls,
You can open email attachment,
You can set up mobile hotspot without a plan.

I am unaware.

Only able to backup/restore with Verizon cloud backup.

How can I get an email app working on the VZW Samsung Brightside? The icon installed leads to the VZW app store which them says the app is unavailable.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Not sure, but do you have service with VZW themselves or through an MVNO?
