OK, I bought a Samsung Galaxy Prevail, only to hear how bad it is consider (*mem/camera/etc). I originally was looking at the Motorola XPRT 5mp camera on the Boost site for $99.00.
I need to know did I make a bad choice, this phone will actually revert to the hubby, or be returned (*Wal Mart 30 day). So could one of you help me make a good choice? I think I like Boost, but after visiting their FB page I see a lot of issues (*down time/poor CSR/ etc).
Don't text/tweet prefer touch screen
Want good Camera
Need internet for my business to show samples
Need decent on board Memory
+ up to as many GBs as possible with phone and as upgrade
e-mails and other stuff can be done at home so not a high priority on the phone
Good screen resolution and size
Good is not cheap and cheap is never good.
The EVO Design is reported to have a good camera.

For what you're asking, expect to spend around $200 on Boost Mobile.
The best three phones for your criteria are the:
Samsung Transform Ultra ($200)
LG Marquee ($249)
ZTE Warp ($179)
In my opinion, the Marquee is the best choice. Regardless of specs, it seems to be the fastest of the three. It has decent on-board memory, and operates on android so internet is no issue.
I'm partial to keyboards though, so I snagged myself a Transform Ultra when they were released.
As far as price versus capability, the Warp wins. You however, will sacrifice a bit of speed for the lower price. But, the ward is made with Gorilla glass, making it highly shatter and crack resistant. This is the phone of choice in my stores, and currently, all of my employees have one.
But, like you said, you want cheap....so if you're willing to sacrifice a bit of speed, I would choose the Warp.
If you're willing to deal without android, the Rumor Reflex has a VERY nice camera. It also has great internet capability, and decent amount of onboard memory, plus a slide out keyboard. The Rumor Reflex currently costs $60.00
Hope that helped!!!
Make sure you are positive of the phone you want before you buy! Don't let a push retailer up-sell you.
First off the winner is Mitchell! When I say cheap I think he knew I meant budget conscious not virgin mobile! I needed to see options, and these he did provide. I have never owned a cell phone, until Tuesday. I still do not need one. I do all of my work on-line, at home with a high end computer. The programs I use do not even function well on a laptop, hence I have never owned one of those either. Plus do not require the mobility. BUT! That being said, I am sort of liking the idea of a cell phone now. But not enough to commit to a 2 year plan or buy into a formal contract. So these prepaid plans seem ok. I will call you Mitchell, and I will give you my business! Maybe we can find a good middle of the road compromise.
For the others, I was actually looking for the best at the least situation. Remember saying cheap, does not mean extreme low end. In my case at least. Since I came to a site to ask, it should have been fairly obvious I was looking for the best alternative. At least I was smart enough to list what I was looking for! I could have said something really lame like .... "I want a cheap cell phone" with no info or stated needs.
But thank you all!!
ooopsie! double post
