    Pageplus non smartphone with working browser wap gmail app

    Hi - I need a new phone for pageplus. The only data I need is access to my gmail. Would love a flip phone that can have the gmail app on it. I purchased a lg vx5600 off email but was unable to change the proxy even with software to pageplus. Does anyone have a non smartphone with the gmail app?

    Thanks

    I'm not aware of one. Is there a reason why you don't want a smart phone? A decent LG Ally can be purchased for around $35 used on eBay. Keep cellular data off except when you check GMail, use WiFi when available, and you'll use very little cellular data.

    +1 -- i got my mother an LG Ally off eBay last year (paid around $60 then, dropped since) for her first ever smart phone and she absolutely loves it. Easy to use, fast, responsive, almost never crashes, App Store is available, Wi-Fi for using at home, memory card slot, etc.

    Also, the sliding keyboard may help when you have to write or reply to emails (and will also help with texts)

    As mentioned above, you can fully disable data when desired so it won't eat into your data when sitting idle.

    It is for a child who I do not want to have a droid. I would love a simple flip phone.

    In that case I'd suggest a Samsung Alias or Motorola Rzr V3M. But you'll have to modify the phone settings using BitPim and a Hex Editor, and either the Hopke or Zaks proxy server. From the reports I've seen, the PPC proxy server is very poor and restrictive. The full instructions are available if you search.

    Also, the Rzr V3M can be set up to use QNC data. You'll need to search how to set that up as well.
