Basically I want to buy a new phone. What's the best type to buy, one that won't spy on me and steal my information, something that's cheap, but has good quality. Something that isn't an android.
I hear Huaweii is linked to China or something, so is that any good?
>something that isn't an android

So... iphone?

I'm not a aware of any opensource dumbphones for sale comrade. Even with a opensource dumbphone you're going to have tracking through triangulation/multilateration of cell tower signals. If you need a phone I'd suggest crafting your own Arduino phone, this way you can be certain that your phone won't be able to be converted into a listening device remotely as perhaps all phones are. On short notice there is doubtfully much difference between commonly sold models in terms of privacy.

You could get a dumb phone and keep it in a Faraday bag when you don't want to be tracked. You won't be able to receive calls with it in the bag and the feds can still hear/read your conversations. That's the only cheap option I'm aware of. The open source smart phone options likely protect actual conversations assuming you are doing them online with encryption.
