|Bottom line|| |
Virgin Mobile's budget-friendly Samsung Montage is a functional messaging phone without a contract, though its poor battery life and entry-level features hardly stand out in the crowd.
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.
The Kyocera Brio is worth the price you pay for it, but unless you're in the market for a free feature phone with a small screen, QWERTY keyboard, and good call quality, keep on moving.
Though it's devoid of even midlevel features, the Kyocera Kona manages to be an excellent flip phone.
If you're in need of a low-cost prepaid phone, the Awe will satisfy, but if you want a quick-moving phone, move on.
