Public Mobile – another newer wireless player who’s looking to be purchased – has released the basic flip phone Kyocera Kona. The phone can flip open, make calls, text and snap low quality pictures with its 2MP camera. The internal display is 2.4-inches and the external display is 1.44-inches. The Kona retails for $69 outright and according to the press release it’s “easy to use and hard to resist.” Honestly, with Public’s low-cost monthly plans this is a solid deal.

    I had such a phone 8 years ago, from Samsung. 300 dollars it cost! Honestly, I hardly think anyone wants to be seen in public with a flip phone nowadays!

      I actually liked my flip phone (when i got it for replacement) it was solid phone as everyone says

      I also liked it then. Actually both of them. lost the first one, then bought another…That is when I learned to back up my contacts on the computer…

      I still see those phones around, mostly with elderly, or with someone who just doesn’t give a crap about “latest and greatest’, which, honestly is a majority.

      Only tech nerds like ourselves really care about Galaxies and Ones.
