Samsung Entro (Virgin Mobile)
When it comes to flip phones on a no-contract carrier, it's hard to beat the Samsung Entro's price. I mean, this phone costs $15 upfront, which is almost unheard of for a postpaid cellie. Sure, it's extremely bare-bones (for example, there's no camera), but if all you want to do is send a call or receive a text, the Entro is well-qualified.
The good: The Samsung Entro has strong call quality, voice actions, and GPS. Its competitive price makes it one of the least expensive simple phones anywhere.
The bad: The Entro is so bare-bones, it lacks a camera, a music player, and frankly, a personality.
The bottom line: You can't beat the Samsung Entro's no-contract price and simplicity when shopping for a dead-simple phone that only fields calls and texts.
