Some basic Verizon phone models are flip phones such as the DuraXV or Revere 3, or non-flip models such as the Extravert 2 or Cosmos 3. Verizon offers a whole line of basic models, including Kyocera, LG and Samsung phones.
While they don't have such a wide range of functionality, the basic phone models Verizon offers are less expensive and easier to use than modern smart phones. They are a very good option for a less tech-friendly user. For a more affordable price, an individual shopping for a phone can purchase a certified pre-owned basic phone, or a refurbished phone.
