We definitely didn't see THIS backlash coming, but here you go. Apparently, old school cell phones are making a comeback . . . and people are getting rid of their smart phones because they want "dumb" phones.
Why would you want a phone with a tiny black-and-white screen that doesn't have a keyboard or apps or the Internet? There are three main reasons . . .
1. The battery can last for days . . . maybe even a whole week . . . without having to charge.
2. They're WAY tougher. You see people walking around all the time with iPhones that have cracked screens . . . old phones were indestructible compared to that.
3. It helps you break that feeling of being TOO connected. Some people find it freeing not to have every email, Facebook message, or tweet immediately show up in front of them.
Even if you don't want to go back to an old phone, there's some good news for you here . . . if you still have your old phone, you might be able to get good money for it on eBay.
