@emygalixy The Google Pixel 3a is $400, which is a lot cheaper than most phones. You can also get a used phone, or rent a phone from a carrier like sprint, which has a monthly price. The fancier the phone, the higher the monthly price.
@laylay_latte Ipods aren’t really phones, though. You can’t get cellular data on them, and you can’t get your own phone number. It’s basically a small ipad, though it was a good suggestion.
