Yes I can. I just need to have a PC with Internet access around, and a regular dumb phone.
On my smartphone, my most common uses are: checking for directions and public transport information, communicating with friends and playing games. When I didn't have my smartphone around a few months back, I instead carried a small local map to get around (not as though I get lost easily, but at that time my temporary job required me to travel to different places). To communicate, I'm lucky to have loads of free SMS for a low price from my carrier, so SMS works. As for playing games, that's just to kill time - I can live without that, for sure. So for me a smartphone is just convenient. For me it's faster to swype out my messages than use T9, and it's faster to find directions on Google Maps instead of flipping through pages of the map.
