Helping a Luddite friend transition from a 3G flip phone. Currently she uses 300 minutes / mo. , no data.
I am fairly savvy about prepaid plans, MVNOs, etc. Looking for hardware recs, experiences. Smaller is better.

Maybe find an iPhone SE? Smallest form factor, still runs fine.

Your friend may have better luck if they shop & sign up with one of the MVNO's. When I signed on with Visible (~ 2 years ago) they offered a $100 basic 4G smart phone (ZTE R22) for $20. The phone has been rock solid all the time I've had it but, may need a replacement battery in the next year or so. If your friend goes with Visible, they can join my Party Pay and get UNLIMITED voice, text AND data for $25 / month TOTAL. Otherwise Visible charges $40 /month (which is still a great deal).

Does your friend want a smart phone. Flip phones are still a thing.
