Not a smart phone but a phone.

I have a Google Pixel 3A. It's a good phone but I really don't like smart phones. The best smart phones I've used were BlackBerry phones that were issued to me from work. I REALLY don't like iPhones and all of the iPhoney hype. The best phone I've owned was a Samsung Convoy 4.

I just need a phone that I can use for talking, texting, and not much else really. It's okay if it has a camera and a primitive web browser and maybe another one or two items because I don't have to use them. When I want to use a computer I use a computer, not a phone.

I'd also like to be able to replace the battery when it goes bad without spending 2 hours taking the phone apart, cutting wires, and soldering in a new battery.

Anyone else think this way about phones? Any suggestions?
