Why can't AT&T have a separate list of cell phones NOT requiring a data plan on this website?

Many people on fixed incomes want just a good dependable cell phone without a data plan requirement. Why can't AT&T provide a list of the cell phones available for such plans and real customer reviews of those phones? I want a very sturdy cellphone with low radiation and good battery life that provides the widest range possible. I can't find such a simple description on any of the phones on this site.

Thank you @wingrider for providing the link.

 

@deer_tracker42 you can also visit http://www.att.com/shop/wireless/devices.html#fbid=hr16UTyBOT0 and click on Quick Messaging devices. This will provide you with a list of phones that are not smartphones and do not require a data plan. 

 

Hope this helps!
