Phone options for houseless people – winter in Minnesota

Having not found a

Cheapest decent one i found online, $83 Nokia.

A person who has gotten phones for people at lots of encampments said he could usually find $60 phones, and advocated requesting donated equipment.

The phone i have is probably the cheapest of the ruggeds, at $131, the Kyocera Duraforce Pro 2.

The CATS60 Rugged Smartphone and the Kyocera Brigadier Rugged Smartphone just seemed too expensive for what they provided and/or not available.

Went with the Blackview BV5900 (2020) 4G IP69K 5V/2A Rugged Smartphone 5580mAh 5.7 Inches HD + Waterdrop Display Android 9.0 13MP + 5MP 3GB + 32GB at $160.
