The Asha 201 does the basics with minimum fuss and it's very affordable

from Recombu

The Nokia Asha 201 does the basics with minimum fuss and costs a super-inexpensive £45 on pay-as-you-go. Battery life is great and we like how easy it is to find your way around everything.

Comfortable in the hand, screen is sharp and bright, long battery life

from The Register
If your main requirements are making voice calls and keeping on top of your e-mails and texts then the Asha 201 is an easy recommendation. The screen is sharp and bright, the keyboard nearly faultless and the new-look S40 interface a joy to behold. If you want a phone that can handle data then the 3G and Wi-Fi-less 201 is clearly not for you but if all you want are the telephonic and communication basics covered it’s well worth the limited outlay...
