I never left, I just switched back to my old carrier because the one I was using was a piece of shit, so I upgraded my flip phone to a Kyocera DuraXTP. It is geared towards construction workers because of its durability, but, it is sort of a hybrid between flip phones and smart phones, as I could surf the web and download some apps if I wanted to pay for the data usage- but, I just use it as a communication device and it holds a charge for a long time. It serves my purposes. Flip phones are actually more popular in Japan than smart phones and I would think the opposite would be true- maybe they’re onto something.
