    I am searching for a 4G phone which has an inbox and an outbox and DOES NOT have message threads.

    Let me begin by stating that my 3g telephone is now out of commission, due to selfish people who care only about themselves (they do not care about the customer one tiny bit). My 3g telephone made sense. It had an inbox and an outbox (also known as a sent folder). This is logical, coherent, and easy to understand. It makes perfect sense.

    Ever since the selfish people made the selfish and irrational decision to cut off service to my 3g telephone (these people are no different from a husband who abuses his wife), I have not been able to find a 4g phone which has an inbox and an outbox (and also a drafts folder), like my old 3g phone had. The new 4g phones have these things called message threads. I literally hate Message Threads more than anything in the entire solar system. I hate these new Message Thread phones so much, that I would rather just have no phone at all (and live entirely off of my landline), than have a phone that tries to shove an illogical, annoying, incoherent system of message threads down my throat.

    My question is, is there anybody in these forums, who knows of a person or persons, who could sell me a 4g phone, which is compatible with Tracfone, that does NOT have message threads. Contrary to popular belief, I do not want a smart phone. Contrary to popular belief, I do not want a selfie stick. I just want a stupid phone, a stupid phone which has an inbox, and an outbox, and a drafts folder, just like my old phone. I have spent many hours searching the internet for a 4g or 5g phone which does NOT have message threads, and I cannot find anything, no matter how hard I try. I have already searched Amazon.

    If necessary, I am willing to pay a computer software engineer/computer hardware engineer hundreds of dollars (or maybe thousands) to custom-build a 4g or 5g stupidphone which does not have message threads. I am also willing to pay such an engineer to jerry-rig two bad phones to form one good phone, if that makes any sense. That is how desperate I am right now.

    I can't stand threaded texting. It is SOOOOOOOOOOOO very very very very annoying. I hate it with every beat of my heart. I hate it with every breath that I breathe. Every phone that forces threaded texting down my throat is completely useless to me. That is how passionately I hate it.

    I also have thought about contacting a lawyer and suing Tracfone and demanding that Tracfone make me a phone which does not have a system of message threads. I don't care if I am forced to pay 500 dollars in legal fees. That is how strongly I hate phones with message threads.

    If anyone could please point me to a 4g or 5g phone which does not have message threads, then that would be much appreciated.

    Good luck finding that unicorn phone, or a lawyer who would file your frivolous lawsuit.

    These selfish pro-threaded-texting Tracfone people anger me more than you can ever imagine. I don't know who these mentally sick monsters think they are, forcing threaded texting down my throat without even asking. Going without a phone is annoying, but not anywhere near as annoying a threaded texting phone.

    There was a mother in California who sued Mcdonald's, because the happy meal toys, were forcing the children, to force the mother, to buy the spoiled brats a happy meal, and the mother was too scared to say no to the spoiled brats. So in this day and age anything is possible.

    Wouldn't the Alcatel MyFlip 2 fit your requirements? Target carries it.

    By message threads, do you mean the conversation view? If so, it can be disabled. I don't care for it either.

    What was the outcome of that lawsuit against McDonald's? There are hungry lawyers out there who will take your money, file a frivolous lawsuit and put up with being the butt of jokes at the courthouse. But what benefits will you get from your lawsuit? I doubt that any judge would set a hearing for it.

    It has nothing to do with TF. You're beating the wrong horse

    Try some third party messaging app. Plenty of people don't like threaded view (me neither just not as passionate about it!) So I am sure one of the alternative can display messages like you want. Or if not you can probably commission them to make a version for you, with more chance for success than the lawsuit.

    John Flushing, you're not making much sense to me.

    You're irrationally angry about the big 3 US cellular networks shutting down their 3G networks in favor of 4G and 5G technology, which of course, MVNOs have to follow.

    Regarding your rant about "message threads", my email app is set to have an inbox and an outbox and DOES NOT have message threads. This can be done on ANY phone with MOST email apps of your choosing available in the Play Store.

    IF you're actually talking about text messages, please explain more, because I'm not aware of a text messaging app with an inbox, an outbox, and a drafts folder. Thanks.

    It would help if the OP tells us what 3G phone he has, so we can find out more about its Inbox, Sent, Draft folders.

    I think this silly thread is going nowhere fast and the OP is tilting at windmills. Kind of like longing for the "Good old days" before we had all these fancy automobiles and horses were good enough for us.

    This is only my opinion as a fellow forum member.
    Just another day in paradise.....

    Agreed.

    John Flushing, please tell us EXACTLY which 3G phone you have, and EXACTLY which app you're talking about that has Inbox, Sent, and Draft folders.

    A few years ago, 3g, flip phones had txt messages in 3 folders, in out, draft.
    They were not grouped by contacts, everything was in the 3 folders.
    When my Mom's phone got crushed in the recliner and I got her a newer phone, she hated it, missed the old way.
    I assume that is what the OP is referring to.

    Frivolous lawsuits are nothing new.

    Monet Parham sued in 2010. And 12 years later, still toys in happy meals.
