I have several flip phones with removable SIM cards. Two from AT&T, one
from Pac Bell Mobile which was later Cingular. Useful when traveling if
your primary carrier is Verizon. Just buy a foreign prepaid SIM card.

Tracfone BYOP (bring your own phone) can be even cheaper than Tracfone
with Tracfone phones. Junky smart phones can be had for $40, and decent
ones for $80.
$100 for 1200 minutes, 1200 texts, and 1.2GB of data, good for a year.
That's $8.33 per month.
$200 for 4500 minutes, 4500 texts, and 4.5GB of data, good for a year.
That's $16.67 per month.
Everything rolls over when you extend your service, so if you have too
much left over at the end of 365 days you buy a smaller refill (or just
pay to extend your service with no extra minutes, texts, or data).
If I were advising someone on a low-cost smart-phone phone and service
I'd tell them to buy an $80 Moto E LTE and use it on Tracfone's AT&T
service. Just avoid Sprint and T-Mobile at all costs.
While Tracfone's $20/90 day refill ($6.67/month) is the least expensive
option on Tracfone, it's actually a terrible deal for low-use prepaid
compared to Page Plus Cellular (Verizon), which is as low as $2.50 per
month ($10 every 120 days).

I've probably got the same phone but find browser practically useless.
See from other's post and checked mine and there is a sim card. Did not
try to remove it but previously had got a cable to connect to the
computer to try to get pictures off but it was not accessible.
When my flip phone finally bites the dust, as its predecessor did, I may
upgrade to a smarter one.

If both phones support Bluetooth, you should be able to use it to
transfer your address book. Pair them and look for an option to "send
address book via Bluetooth" or something like that.
BTW, I used that to send the AB from my Verizon phone to the new Sprint
phone (both flip-phones, I like the way the buttons are covered so my
pocket can't make calls).
