Can anyone recommend a good dumb phone? My dad just got one, and he likes it. It's a Pantech Renue.I'm not so sure it's for me, though.

A dumb phone is a phone that does not require a data plan. I want a phone with a better camera and one that's wifi-capable. I do everything I need over MMS/SMS, so I also need a phone that allows you to store e-mail addresses as individual contacts.

AT&T, which is who we're with, has 3 dumb phones, which they call quick-messaging phones. They're listed here. Not sure if that helps.

Any suggestions?

I had a Samsung... Evergreen, I think. 

And Ive always been happy with LG phones.

I've had bad experiences with LGs. Their touch screens always broke.

The Pantech Swift looks a lot like my Verizon phone the Pantech Hotshot. Its horrible!!! I cant wait to get rid of this thing. The touch screen is awful. Ill go to send a text, all the letters I touch will highlight like they should, but only 50% will show up on the screen...and thats if it doesnt freeze up after trying to type a word. I touch the screen and instead of it doing what it should...the screen will just bounce around. Its soooo frustrating!!!

Check out your local dollar stores, my father in law got his "dumb phone" from one and he loves it. When they came out with a newer model that included wifi he got that and was so pleased with it. It does decent.
