cell phone assistance

I apologize if this is a stupid question and should not be posted here. Mods, feel free to delete.

For my new job I need to have a cell phone so the animal facility can contact me every time a mouse pukes. (Well, any time there is an animal issue. 24 hours a day. Like if a pipe bursts and the animal facility floods. If it floods due to global climate change I'll have bigger things to worry about than mice. Like building an ark out of yarn and Mod Podge).

So, cell phones. I have only had one emergency only prepaid phone and I've never needed to use it and never managed to make a call on it ever. (I did use the voicemail, but there was literally never an emergency). It was a gift more than 6 years ago, so I should probably buy another.

I'll let you guess exactly how much I want a cell phone. Unfortunately I have zero experience in buying them and choosing plans.

I have no kids, I have no parents, and I have only been in 2 situations in the past um, ten years? when a cell phone would have been convenient and moderately helpful. I am not a cell phone user by nature.

But someone needs to hear about the puking mice and that someone is me.

I need a phone that is a) not heavy to carry, b) can take a lousy picture unless I get a cheap camera instead, c) can be reasonably cleaned when it starts to smell like mouse poo and d) has a CHEAP phone plan because I already have phone/internet/tv at home and internet at work so I really don't need to be paying top dollar to be woken up at 2 am because a mouse puked.

Suggestions? I literally have no idea how to go about purchasing a phone beyond 'go online and get overwhelmed immediately and cry.' So advice would definitely be welcome. Thank you in advance.
