I don't have a smart phone. What I have is just a standard phone that you can talk and text with, so it has no option of playing music in my car; which also means I have no experience with modern cell phones. I had a Microsoft Zune, but the battery is giving me trouble, and I'm not going through the headache of attempting and inevitably failing to replace it, so I just want to get another MP3 player so I can listen to music in my car. I was searching for advice on which one to get, and a few people were saying to get a used phone instead and not activate it. Is that a good idea? I just need a couple of gigabytes of space, and cell phones have batteries that can be replaced. It seems like cell phones are usurping not only MP3 players, but cameras as well. Surely MP3 players do a better job of playing MP3's than phones, since that's their only job, right?
