I bought a little old school phone, for less than $20, and I'm paying around US $8 a month for it. I needed something but can't bear the smartphone thing anymore. I'd gotten addicted to listening to music all the time, and I'm really enjoying being unplugged. However, after I changed the number in Amazon, they now send me a link for the two-step verification, instead of just a code, and I can't resolve it yet. So obviously Amazon wants to make sure you need a smartphone. I wonder why.
