What is a very simple cell phone that works well?

I am looking to simplify my life. What is a very simple, compact, and good cell phone that would work with T-Mobile.

I am looking to kick the fancy functionality that ties me to my phone.

Are you wanting to buy new? That's probably the way to go, given that it's hard to account for the reliability of a used device with no warranty. You can get two comparable "dumbphones" new from T-Mobile. Both will be $10 if you renew your contract, and $70 if you buy them outright. They both have cameras, by the way. But, a camera is a potential life saver compared to say lots of games and web browsing.

Simpler and/or more compact than this?

Ah, yes, that phone that chazlarson linked to was the same one I linked to, although at a cheaper price since that was on their prepaid division. You can get that one and just put your old SIM in and it should work.

I'm planning on doing the same thing at the end of my contract. I'll be on the lookout for a used nokia 3110 and then just getting the sim card kit.

Thanks, I'll grab that $50 phone.
