describing an item that has only the most basic and necessary features to it; strictly functional; utilitarian
I looked into getting an upgrade for my cell phone, told the sales rep I just wanted something bare bones (i.e. a unit strictly for making/receiving telephone calls).
turns out that's impossible these days, since even the most basic phones have cameras and mp3 players as standard features now!
