alternative pay as you go for non smart phones

hi

I've just found out virgin are stopping PAYG, although I haven't had a text from virgin yet.

My current PAYG is an anytime top up where you top up £10 and it lasts until its gone, over several months. There is no monthly charge, top up etc. 

But when I google to find an a similar PAYG to swap to they all seem to be £x a month and you get so much texts, calls and data. 

You can still buy non smart phone so surely there are some tariffs that don't include data?

My £10 lasts me months so I don't want to be paying £7-10 every month. And I don't need data as its an old non-smart phone. 

Does anyone know an alternative provider with a similar set up? One that isn't a monthly rate. And/or one that at least is aimed at non smart phones, that doesn't include data?

1p Mobile has changed its Terms and Conditions and now costs £2.50 per month. (I've just left)

ASDA do traditional PAYG and GiffGaff can be used that way.

Trad PAYG is disappearing from the scene

If you signed up to 1p Mobile before the 1st January 2021, a minimum spend of £2.50 per month will apply on your SIM card. This monthly minimum spend requirement does not apply to customers joining 1pMobile on or after the 1st January 2021. However, you’ll need to top-up your phone with at least £10 of credit every 120 days.
