    Decent feature phone option on ATT?

    Been texting my mom a lot lately and she's doing it on some crap phone with T9. Want to get her a feature phone (she doesn't want to pay for data) with a slideout qwerty or something. I looked at ATT's website and it looks like their feature phones are near nonexistent, all T9.

    Any good idea? Maybe something unlocked?

    This is a decent phone for texting and will work for AT&T.

    hmm that pantech looks interesting and the price is right.

    can we just swap sims or would we have to contact att?

    also what about moving contacts from the old phone to the new and stuff? given what a tech luddite mom is, i think this may be more trouble than it's worth.

    Whether her old sim will work depends on what she has now. When I "upgraded" my wife's phone last summer, they swapped out her 3-year-old sim. We got the Pantech Swift btw (which we ended up returning because its calendar, which she uses all the time, was severely lacking). But given that the Link you're looking at is older, it might work.

    As for migrating the contacts, again that depends mostly on her old phone. Usually you'd copy the contacts to the sim if they're not already there, assuming you can move the sim. Since the pantech link II is available from at&t now for $30 if she's up for contract renewal, it would be easiest overall for her to go to an at&t store and they should migrate the contacts for her (at least, they do at the store I go to). Not sure how the two models compare.
