Any recommendations for a good durable reliable cell phone?

Bowing to the inevitable, I have to get a cell phone.
Need easy to see numbers, not a real small type, nothing real expensive.

I will be buying minutes for it, not using a regular service plan.

Don't need/ want e-mail/internet access, just something to use to call around town, and to have a cell number that PayPal and other services are now demanding
( grrrrrr).
I am home most of the time, retired, don't need to make a lot of calls on a cell, don't like talking on them, actually.
I have a landline for home.

Probably will get one on Amazon, out here in the boonies son't have a lot of shopping options, want to avoid a dud.

any do's/don'ts appreciated.

I just got a stimulous check for.....$600.00?!?

via my Soc sec. direct deposit.

Weren't they supposed to be $1200.00 for a single person?
No dependents, we don't owe any income tax.


To add:
We both got the 1200.00 last spring and the 600.00 in Jan. this year.

This looks like a fubar....am wondering how big of a problem it will be.

Problem solved, thanks to a couple eagle eyed DU folks.
This is the notice I didn't get after the Jan. 600.00. the letter is dated ..Feb. 24..
GGGDDMM De Joy.

I've just had cataract surgery and it's difficult to read somethings....

TY all for your help.


In the midst of Texas woes, this cheered me up immensely

Hope you enjoy this as much as I did, 'cause I actually know a few folks like this..click on tweet for the tale.

Speaking of mail slowdown....



DU admin. just got the check I mailed on dec. 29.

Why can't we fire the horribly mis-named DeJoy??

A warning about Netflix's Lupin.



It's very very good, Addictive.

IMDB sez 7 episodes, but only had summaries for 5.

I completely missed the meaning of that.

The end of ep. 5 is an improbable cliff hanger. And the end of the season.
No word when the rest of it will return.

AAARRGGHHH

In case you were curious, here's the lot Jarvankas want to buy

Something like 1.8 acre, for 31.8 million asking, private Island with few residents, 24 hour police, guarded and gated.
can you imagine what their house would look like?
It's an open secret she wants to run for some sort of public office in Fla. and is establishing residency, altho the New York house will be theirs also.

Really good pics of the area. I esp. like noting how close to zero sea level it all is even now.
In a few years, everyone there will get a lesson on how and why those little islands were formed.

Need help with renew membership problem


Trying to renew membership, when I get to the "pay" page only PayPal shows,
I can't use PayPal and want to use a credit card.
How can I access that option?

PSA ..... careful of sending the Guardian any money



Was feeling charitable and sent them a ONE time payment of 20.00. checked the one time payment box.
This was early Nov.
Just now got a notice from my paypal account they charged 135.00 to it.
Was able to stop the payment.
That was too easy to rip me off tho, I just happened to be checking my account.
