Good morning.Raw and cold is the weather today. How many had flip phones here. I loved them.Still have two in my office and not sure what to do with them. Mike still has his.He said this is fine with me.You do not have to worry about damages to it. I still have three cell phones here that I do not use. Not sure why I keep hanging on these? Anyone here has a flip phone Photo is on of the two I have.The other one not flip.

Yes, I got a brand new flip phone 3-4 months ago and was very happy to get it.

@JolietJake certainly works for some but I think they've probably had their day and won't be making a significant comeback any time soon. I'd like an old nokia 3110 but I am now very used to the bigger touch screen to read books on

@Mike197602 May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your armpits. My phone is for phoning...and that is all.

My husband had one, but I never had one. I can see how a flip phone would offer more protection from damage.

I've never had a flip phone. I'd be too busy acting like I was Captain Kirk if I had one.

I've never had a flip phone in my life, not even when we had a car phone installed in 1989.

@AbbyGreenhill It's the best kind of phone, because it's a phone, and you simply phone people with it

Ya I had but now it's bigger screen. I mean I need bigger screen in my phone to do all my work. I found flip phones a bit scary to handle.

@amadeo I actually considered one when I bought my smartphone. I really only need to have a simple phone on me when I'm away from home to make sure I get a ride home. But I got such a good deal on the smartphone that I went for it. But I'm always willing to go from smartphone to not-so-smartphone in the future to save money!

I cannot imagine that anyone who is used to going online or texting would opt for a flip phone today, unless they have enhanced how they work. We had our fair share of them over the years also. I have only had a smart phone for about 4 or 5 years now, so it was that recently that I relied on a flip phone.
