Smartphones are extremely popular nowadays. For some people, it is necessary to obtain one due to the position they hold at work. Phones in general were intentionally made for communication purposes. Our generation is moving beyond that. We are entering a whole new and different technological stage. A smartphone will basically enable you to surf the internet, web browsing, checking e-mails and so much more! In addition to that, smartphones also posses Wifi which lets you use the internet as long as you are in a hotspot zone. One of the issues that hinders people from purchasing the required data plan for smartphones is the costly fee. So, are there any non-smartphones that allows you to use the internet without the data charges? The answer is yes. Most of these phones are not branded and are not under the AT&T company. Some of them are only available in countries outside of the United States.
