Yes, that's right, a flip phone without internet access.
A flip phone and ya know the design of the flip phone is based on the communicator from the first "Star Trek" TV series.
Yeah, it really is!
I would not even consider using a phone with internet access because I know what kind of people are out there.
The kind of people who will cause tons of internet capable phones to not work one bright morning.
I actually know some of those people and they are nice guys but they are criminals and as long as they are dealt with on that basis everything is fine.
Also I do not text.
I know how but I don't. I talk on phones.
I don't use hotspots.
Back in the pre-CAN-SPAM Act days we would use open hotspots as email servers much to the chagrin of the real owners but hey, those were the Wild West days of the internet!
I now buy all of my domains through a provider which offers free WHOIS protection.
Everything that involves money I do through a corporation or other essentially anonymous methods of concealing transactions from prying eyes.
Knowledge is power you know and there just ain't no point in giving others too much knowledge about you and with that knowledge at least some degree of power over you.
My house is protected with an offline video system, a panic button that sets off a 136 decibel siren and an alarm system of my own design and installation.
"Paranoid" you may say but no.
It's a jungle out there and I prefer to keep the jungle critters out in the jungle.
