I never use my smartphone's features and I don't like the idea of having accounts and spyware in my phones software (yes i know about custom roms, my phone currently runs cyanogen, and if i could it would run replicant). So what are some cool old (or maybe new) phones that can be used on today's networks for about $50?

I miss horizontal clamshell flip phones with full physical keyboards. I miss when I didn't have to charge my phone every single day. It's pretty crazy how quickly mobile technology exploded.

My sister fell in love with Palm's later proto-smartphones but that's probably already more advanced than you're looking for.

A lot of deprecated phones run on Java-based OS right? After all these years I can't imagine them being any more secure than today's smartphones honestly. IIRC mobile security was becoming a big concern even before the iPhone came out.

I remember the Motorola Razr being really popular for a time, and the last time I was in Singapore you could still buy a variety of second-hand dumbphones pretty much anywhere you went.

The problem is if you're in America networks like Sprint and Verizon dominated the market for a long time with phones that can't use SIM cards, so I'd wager most older phones on those networks probably don't work anymore, but don't take my word for it.

I've had this phone since 2001 and it still works. Bar phones are indestructible. Tbh, i'd rather have a flip phone because smartphones literally a tool for distraction for when youre sitting in class with nothing to do. When im walking around in the hallways at my uni, all I see are people with their heads down looking at facebook on their dumb smartphones. Reminds me of 1984 everytime im looking at these people.

IMO an Android Smartphone with all the spyware removed would make the perfect cyberpunk phone, it's essentially a portable Linux computer that fits in your pocket and you can use your hacking skills on the go
Plus, they make Solar USB chargers, so when the system tries to control the power to your PC you could use a smartphone as a substitute, they also have IRC and usenet clients for Android

Not java based os, but OS that is capable of running java. Many feature phones support java MIDP's which ware nice. But stuff like S40/S60 nokia, while barphones ware really smartphones as you could dev native software for them.
I read a shit ton of stuff on my 6120c nokia barpone.
Thing supported all cellular technologies then deployed here (even 3.5G WCDMA), had microSD port and earphone jack, but no GPS without external bluetooth dongle.
I lurked so much on IRC and cyberpunkreview with that thing.

But yeah, most phones only ran java apps. I had a third browser (stock nokia, opera mini and some weird java thing that rendered most pages better than the two) on the nokia that was a J2SE thing.

BUt I'd love my self some reasonable flip-featurephone.

Using any mobile phone allows you to be tracked. If you want cyberpunk, reality isn't very glamorous. Stick to stationary home phones.


 No.23213

Smartfones would be /cyb/ if they didn't spy on you (the only exception is when you use Replicant, but we all know it's not perfect). Moreover, Android is in fact based on GNU/Linux, but you can't really do shit on it, can you? (The most /cyb/ thing I did was using an RTL-SDR)

So, a cyberpunk config is to use an old dumbphone so as not to be tracked and a PC (preferably with a custom BIOS as well), an older smartphone (Nokia N900, Nokia 9300i Communicator, Palm Treo something) or a smartphone made for people like us (Neo900, the CHIP project… but they often end up being failures)

Get any phone with cyanogenmod source, or regular android source (a jewgle branded phone like Nexus)

If your system isn't 100% drok then repo clone the android source and build your own roms. If it is drok, do it on AWS, takes only 3mins to download entire source, then run a script that nukes all the shitty stuff you don't want out of the makefiles so they aren't built. Add your own programs to get built and signed with the Rom. You learn how to do this in any Android Oreilly book or Android Hacker's Handbook.

You can prevent anything getting installed by simply ripping out all the installers. Prevent camera being accessed by ripping out all the cam drivers, or GPS, or NFC ect. You have full control over the device (well except one major exception… the fucking radio proprietary RTOS running unchecked).

I'd just like to interject for moment. What you're refering to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called Linux, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.

There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called Linux distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux!

>>24647

Jokes aside, just for any users who might be unclear:

Android isn't a GNU system. The GNU/Linux moniker is only applicable if the Linux distro in question uses the gnu userland or c standard library, which Android does not. If I used just the linux kernel for some embedded device, that wouldnt be GNU/Linux either. You can have Linux without GNU and you can have GNU without linux. Theyre just pieces of an operating system that are commonly used together.

I'm really surprised no one has mentioned yet that Neo900 is finally available for pre-order/"down payments". Phones are inherently invasive of your privacy, but Neo900 is probably going to be among the least of evils, and it'll have a FUCKING ANALOG KEYBOARD THANK GOD I FUCKING HATE TOUCHSCREENS.

Still, I don't get what else there is going to be to it other than it being a modernized N900 running a Linux distro. You still can't upgrade any of the hardware.

wow, you're tripping hard. N900's screen was a few years ahead its time when it was released. Even now it's pretty competitive - it's just tad small. However, given that I keep using N900, I know I can live with that.

Also, no, it wouldn't be more economical. I evaluated the options, plus I know some of the people behind Neo900 project personally. I know what they're doing and how much this stuff costs (and why).

The trade off between a PHONE and a SMART "PHONE" is one isn't a phone but a portable computer. It does everything you need it to, and these days hardly makes phone calls at all. For everything important, I use my phone. For everything else, there is my smart phone. The extra line costs me like $15 extra a month–probably less.

I used to have a "work phone" but it was a smart phone and I ended up (because of my profession) getting paranoid about people tapping it and hacking it etc. The legal world is a bitch. The real world is an even bigger one.

I've got a somewhat decent system in place to partially protect my privacy on android. I say partially because android itself will always be proprietary google no matter what you do. Anyway, here's what I do:

- Use XPrivacy to limit exactly what each app does and does not have access to (internet, app data, clipboard, you name it). I can't find a single flaw with the software it works reliable and it's easy enough to figure out.

- Use orbot and orweb to reroute all internet access on my phone through the TOR network. Yes I am aware orbot/orweb are a bit leaky, but they're the best android has.
