 +Whatever was cheapest and worked from used cell phone shop down the street. Brainwave PC. 6-month basically no questions asked warranty with good free support for $100 - $60 (street price) = $40. Cheap, done! Receipt is in email. They said it should work in Japan, we'll find out.

 +Got a boot loop after a few weeks :-/. Maybe need to restore the bootloader? I feel like it's a hardware issue though, since it worked occasionally.

 Smartphones are really handy as maps, but the size and dumbness and non-desirability of flip phones is interesting. And they'​re really cheap, last a long time, and you can transfer contacts on/off of them using bluetooth pretty easily! Smartphones are really handy as maps, but the size and dumbness and non-desirability of flip phones is interesting.

 +Tello, Twigby, or Unreal mobile all seem like good options. $10/month for unlimited calling and texting, and less ($5/month with Tello) if you use under 100 minutes. Great!
 +  * Twigby combines Sprint and Verizon towers, but also doesn'​t like my IMEI for some reason.
 +  * Probably don't need great coverage though

 +Can check for more info (whether it uses VoIP calling or "​2g"​ calling) with BestMVNO: https://​bestmvno.com/​mvnos/​tello/​

   * Might want to try Xfinity Mobile. Free calls and texts through verizon'​s towers, only pay for the data over 100MB that you use. Sounds like free to me!   * Might want to try Xfinity Mobile.

     * Have to have a more recent phone for BYOD, but they might support android better soon.     * Have to have a more recent phone for BYOD, but they might support android better soon.
