My parents recently leased a brand-new 2013 Subaru Impreza with a premium package. The Subie has built-in Bluetooth capability.

For years, they have also been subscribers to cheap Tracfone cellular phones. Tracfone is a pay-as-you-go service, which keeps the costs way down. That's good for them, since they use the phone very little. They have a dirt-cheap Motorola C139 cell phone. Now they'd like to see what's available that could make use of the Subie's bluetooth capability. My parents also currently have an old old, white MacBook running MacOS 10.6.8.

I visited Radio Shack today to see what they had for cellphones. There were a million smartphones there, with prices clear into the stratosphere. There was a flip-open Tracfone model (I'm not sure, but it might've been an LG 221C; it could've been some other flip-top model, though)

It would be nice to find one that could offer the following criteria:

1: Tracfone, pay-as-you-go (not totally ruling out non-Tracfones, though)

2: flip-top cell, hopefully with external caller ID

3: bluetooth

4: able to interface with MacOS X Address Book

5: inexpensive

Is there any such animal?
