    I've got good filtering software for my computer, but I find a way around every filter I've put on my smartphone. Has anyone else given thought to reverting back to an old flip phone?

    Sounds like a good idea. You'll save money too, as flip phones are usually cheaper.

    I guess the only downside is, how much do you use the phone's regular internet features, like driving directions and email? You'd want a plan to replace those functions with other tech if they're important to ya.

    Personally, I like the feel of talking and texting on a flip phone. The "real" buttons and old-style angle are reassuring somehow. I got a touch screen because I thought full functionality was better, but I kind of want to switch back now.

    I've decided that as soon as my contract is up with my current carrier (Dec, 2015) I too will be reverting back to a flip phone. Having the entire internet with me everywhere I go is both overwhelming and unnecessary for me. I just want to be able to maintain contact with those I care about and keep it simple.

    I think this is a good idea. I'm still able to access P on my phone even though I downloaded a blocker.

    There's always a way around these things I guess.

    If you do get a flip phone, make sure you get rid of your smart phone completely that way you have no WiFi access and won't be tempted.

    Best of luck!

    I wish I could send you a pic of my vintage phone. Though I live in Venezuela, I used to have an Iphone but then muggers came and downgraded me to an oldie, broken blackberry my mom gave me.

    When I got my Iphone though, I had internet cancelled. Just phone calls

    Whatever it takes!
