Where can I find a basic phone for purchase?

I want to buy a new one, but all the search results for phones are Smartphones or accessories for them. Not everyone wants one nor likes them (some can't even manage them properly).

I admit I haven't looked in awhile - but I was looking for a replacement for an old LG VX5400 awhile back (less than year) and it seems I saw some....I could be wrong and it might have been another site.

I was in Wireless World (Verizon resellet) on Saturday and they had 4 or 5 phone choices that were the old style flip phones

Retailers might have Verizon branded phones for sale from old or refurbished stock.  Maybe even new-old stock.

Late side note/update: I did find many in 2nd hand/used sale sites... but that was mostly post 2018(2015 was difficult but found 1 don't remember cost of then think was on Ebay or some site that might not exist or was bought over/conjoined now). Now the question is more like "where can I find a slider phone that is 4G or 5G?" lol Only found 1 but would have to buy full cost since it's sold in UK & another similar in Asia both made in past couple years & with some screen problems I never had with 3G slider phones I tried (like the icons/shortcuts not showing up on screen in 4G sliders hmmm). Can barely even text w/o spam coming in on same day ugh.

Even worse Verizon just auto-ordered me a new flip phone without telling me anything! Unless my account was hacked & they (lol) ordered a cheap 4g flip? lol Def not what I want/need. Ol' VW making so many errors as fast as possible, as least that part of them is fast/improved & reply online messaging (barely/rarely helpful btw). SO much for going into a physical VW store this month, especially if they don't refund my discount for a "upgrade", maybe just look now....
