I need a new phone

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My limit is $80, I want a phone that will work on tmobile, I want it to be a slide type phone with touch screen, like the mytouch 3g slide.. or like the droid x or similar.. I would get the mytouch 3g slide but I dont want or need a data plan and that is required to get the phone at full discount of $50 with a 2 year extension.. I do alot of texting, I make calls every once in awhile.. If anyone could recommend a good slider/ touchscreen phone that would be great!, thanks

There is no phone that meets your specifications. To get a discount on an android phone, you must agree to a 2 year contract, including Data.

There is no way for you to get an android phone for less than $80, and not signing up for a data contract.

Your options are:
1) Buy a phone outright. Find an old G1 phone for around $100 or so. This is probably the cheapest way to get an android touch screen/slider that also works on T-Mobile. Go month-to-month and use WIFI only.

2) Pay more money and get a decent quality android phone, and pay for it outright. $250 or so will give you the option of buying quite a few decent high quality used phones on Ebay. Go month-to month. Try mysimplemobile.com or use T-Mobile.
3) Use that $80 you have now to buy a cheap phone with a plan. Or keep it and get a FREE phone like the myTouch 4G, and be stuck paying data every month. The myTouch 3G slide is $49.99 right now.
