On Android, a "factory data reset" will wipe the APN. It has to be manually re-entered to get Internet connectivity.

On the Androids I've owned, you can also (temporarily or permanently) turn 'Data Usage' off for each carier, thereby limiting yourself to calls and texts.

Indeed my data is only on when I absolutely need it. It helps I am on pay as you go provider and I would not even have data if their lowest cost plan like I am on had not had it added for "free" just recently. Before that I had to pay for it to be available and me being cheap SOB, I would not do that.

It's a computer. It has a processor and it runs an OS, just not one you are familiar with.

Thank you
The only alternative is a Pine64 but it's still in development. https://www.pine64.org/pinephone/

I was a bit ticked too... I agreed to the iCloud terms because it wouldn't let me by it after this last upgrade, but I never store anything 'up there'any way ... that I know of of course. Still get the annoying popup to enter your apple id to access the cloud... come on, like that is something I'd want to do ... kill that service if I could... Pictures are deleted or downloaded to home server if I want to save any. Use my phone for text and calls. Occasional picture when needed. Have a 'normal' camera for pictures that I really want to take. Also only reason I have this iPhone is it required by my work for on-call times and dual authentication needs. They pay for it, so I carry it. My wife's phone is an Android. Don't recall any issues like this on that phone.

It doesn't have an OS. It's a phone, not a computer. And it won't run Linux or any other OS. But if you only want to make calls and send or receive texts, that should be good enough. Don't young people nowadays know what a telephone is?
LOL, Great one Hazel!! Been some time to respond and apologize for that.
