I also use it as an MP3 player because it has a micro SD card slot and I copied my tunes to a card, and because the battery lasts for ages, it saves the battery on my smart phone.
Im on a three mobile contract which is fine but I couldnt see a button phone option on the website. Maybe I'll pop in their shop and ask a real person. If they still have a shop?

I they don't, then just buy a cheap one, but if it's locked to a provider, make sure it can be unlocked,, and then use your SIM in it. As you won't be using any data, then you can reduce your call package to a basic one

I have a basic candy bar "button" phone for my business number. It often gets laughed at but the call clarity is excellent and the battery lasts for well over a week, which usually shuts people up.

I've got a smart phone. Best invention ever.
Last weekend I used it to navigate around the Brecon beacons footpaths. Find a camp site for the night. Check when the pub down the road stopped serving food took some great photos and shared them with my friends instantly. I then watched to football on it and streamed a radio station based on my personal music tastes all the way home.

I'm also using it to type this.
