    It's very uncommon these days, pretty much a necessity to have one.

    I've got a very old Nokia that used to belong to my mother. Rarley use it, only if i'm going somewhere I'm likely to need a lift or if I need to text my boss. Don't see the point tbh, I've got a laptop and a tablet, between the two of them I can do everything a smartphone can do. Plus, why are phones so fancy these days? Half the crap on them is unnecessary and way, way too overpriced!!

    I have had one before but I didn't use it for its main purpose - calling/texting because it had to no SIM.

    I just use facebook for that, you can message, call, or video chat on messenger and it's free! I'm just too tight to actually pay for a contract or top-ups lol

    The drawback is that Facebook has been known to steal and even sell your information so...

    So basically you're happy to have the exact functionality of a phone, only slightly less portable, and have someone else pick up the bill?

    Then it is not that old. I would call it old if you have Snake and Space Impact games on your Nokia
