    Best Compatible Phone for under $250?

    Can anyone recommend the best available phone that works with Wind Mobile for under $250? Currently I'm looking at the Alcatel Tribe Android since I like the idea of the keyboard and the OS. I'd like to also avoid ebay, kijiji, etc.

    Thanks

    Motorola Spice is great. It has Wi-Fi and Battery problems for about 2 weeks and they go away when the battery is conditioned and gone through enough cycles.

    LG Optimus T is right at that price point.

    All the usual places you can buy used kit. eBay, CraigsList, Kijiji, etc.
    What, you trust what I say? I'm just some random guy/gal on the intertubes.

    There are also a bunch of Mytouch 3g phones being sold second hand in the usual places. It's still a pretty capable phone, but make sure you get the newer 3.5mm jack version. Or the Slide if you find one at the right price.

    Like some people have said, if you want to go through means to get a decent phone, Ebay, Kijiji and get an Optimus T or something similar.

    If you're lazy or just don't want to go through the hassle, you could always go to a Wind shop and play around with the Tribe or U8100 and see if you like it. If you do, you can buy it with the TAB and pay next to nothing and still be able to return it within their return period.

    Obviously going the longer way will get more bang for your buck (like building your own desktop as opposed to buying one built at a store) but it's up to you if you want to go through the hassle and/or know enough to be able to properly use it with Wind.

    I'm selling a black new one that I unlocked already.

    After importing it to Canada, I paid more than $250 lol
