I'm using it because it's free, plus I don't like replacing
electronics which are still working. For me the FR is just an
incredibly inefficient and somewhat hard to use dumbphone.
That said, I do like the idea of having access to strong encryption
for SMS type messages and voice, but the way to do that which is
compatible with what other people use is to use android apps that
communicate over the internet. Which would require a much more
complex device than a dumbphone, sadly.
