    Cheapest 16GB phone - Cricket or unlocked?

    My Cricket-branded LG G Stylo has become effectively unusable. As the system files grow bigger and bigger, there is no longer room on the phone for the apps that my daily needs require. I've disabled all apps that I don't use and moved all apps that CAN be moved to the SD card. at this point, 8GB is simply not enough.

    Unfortunately, I am in a low-cash position right now.

    At this point, I need the cheapest 16GB phone I can find. Don't care if it's Cricket or unlocked.

    What I'm seeing as the best value right now is the Amazon BLU R1. It's available for $60, but at that price it puts ads on it. I really don't care about ads per se, but I do care about data usage for the ads.

    Any advice or suggestions greatly appreciated.

    The only thing i could suggest is try getting an AT&T Gophone used or something. I will look around as I am now looking for a new cricket phone too...

    Sure, but my 8GB phone has effectively 3GB available, and 5GB for system files. In theory, a 16GB phone with 5GB of system files should give me 11GB to work with.

    You can use the GoPhone LG Phoenix 2. It is $70 at WalMart and BestBuy. It has 16Gb. Any description of 8Gb is a misprint.

    Some phones do use more for system files tho... However pretty much every 8gb makes out 3gb aft sys and pretty much every 16gb has 9-12gb aft Sys

    Act fee is $25 unless u order online (screen shattered 2day... Can barely type) so if u buy in store u will be charged $85 instead of $60 and probably about $90 aft tax depending on where u are...
    Order online $60 free 2 day ship use page to activate urself so it will work

    Order online will be your best bet but if you want something big like your stylo go for grand x3 for $80 online
