Any android phone that you can install a custom rom that comes with the xposed framework and install an xposed module called protect my privacy.

Samsung galaxy s3 with replicant.
Buy it used from craiglist/ebay.

If you want a phone that IS a phone, then it's your best bet (no google, no GPS/bluetooth etc..). GSM/3G works with it.

Don't use PTD, but, if you need, buy it with removable battery and external sd card. There's a thread on lainchan about this:

Motorola smartphones are pretty good IMO because they generally keep their phones free of bloat, plus there are quite a few custom ROM's for it, like LineageOS.

Here's one site to get you started: https://www.needrom.com/category/motorola/

Good idea, if you don't need 4g then get cheap phones, and invest in laptops instead. Phones don't last long, I dropped mine the other day and now it won't turn on. I'll miss my cool ringtone:

Android and (((google))) are cool and all but having to use one is driving me to suicide. It's just horrible hardware design. It's like a gimped notebook with no more than 8 buttons and they're all over the device instead of clustered together where they would be easy to reach with the single finger you need to maximize your efficiency up to the point where the software caps it anyway because otherwise it gets too difficult for old people to use.

If I want portable computing I would prefer something that's more like a ring of keys than a notepad and a pen.

It's like a portable version of those shitty old Macs that had the main unit built into the monitor.

I'm using Replicant right now, with a galaxy s3. Works very well, I use it only for phone and mp3 function (mpd + android mpd client).
Laptop for any other useful stuff.

What do you think about replicant? It's not perfect, but it seems to be the best "libre" choice for a smartphone.
I'm disgusted by all these news "privacy" oriented phone costing an arm.

Don't use a phone, then. Yes, it's possible.

Man, I would, if I could.

what do you need a phone for that a pager doesn't provide?

Then, buy a pre-2001 phone. If you need to use other "modern" communication protocols, use a laptop.
That's (basically) the only acceptable privacy-oriented approach to this. You can have a modern smartphone, but that would be a change in paradigm on how you think about privacy, since smartphone can be considered a survailance device.

Droid 4 is the last best android with a hard keyboard that isn't blackberry, they are cheap now too
