Smile Simple phone & modem in one device.

Hello! I am new to this forum. First of all, thank you for such a great forum. I have been hunting around for my ideal phone without much luck. I've googled around, and simply can't think of what else to look for.
All I find are smart phones or phones so simple that don't meet my requirements. I have a phone and internet plan on the same sim. My company does not offer duplicate sims, not even paying for one. I do most of my surfing on my laptop & I don't want to have to swap the sim between a modem and the phone. I do not want a smart phone. I want a simple phone with a battery that will last for at least a week in standby. It should also need to fit easily in my pocket. I also want it to be a modem when pluging it into my laptop via usb. I would also like it to be compatible with linux. Am I asking for too much? I don't need a camera, nor gps, not even a colour touch screen. All I want is a phone and modem in one device. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Sorry, no. I meant compatible with a computer running linux, as not all phones/modems are supported, only the most common chipsets. I surf the web with my laptop mostly, and I connect my phone via usb and share the internet connection. I have found many phones that do what I want, but they do way too much, and they have fancy touch screens, and are relative large. I want a small telephone but with high speed internet capabilities, small screen and long battery life. At the moment I have an oldish smart phone as a phone and modem, but it's big. And the battery only lasts a couple days without too much talking.
Thanks.

Oh well. I can't find anything, and if nobody here says anything it's quite likely that what I want doesn't exist. I'm still looking around though. If anybody finds anything like what I want, please, let me know. Thanks.
Cheers!
