    I've been saying for a while that the next phone I get will be an iPhone... well, looks like that's not going to happen yet, as being a college student is expensive xD I've had my samsung T301G slider from Tracfone for a little over a year now, and it seems to be going a bit wonky--I received a text message from someone 2 weeks after they sent it, it up and died yesterday and I had to remove the battery to get it to work again, and it sometimes doesn't inform me that I get a text.

    I do feel kinda guilty since I seem to go through so many phones and am never satisfied, but oh well xD I'd still like to stay with Tracfone for now as their coverage is pretty good, but I want a different phone. I've been searching Amazon and other places but I want to ask you all if there's a phone I'm overlooking? Here's the features I want in my new phone:

    - Comes as an unlocked phone so I can just put my SIM card in
    - $40 or under preferably
    - Has a full keyboard
    - Has a camera
    - Has great call quality (I have a home business and it's been really tricky talking to customers these last few weeks when I can't hear them properly!)

    I think that's it. I don't mind if it's a smartphone/has 3G or not (highly unlikely I find one for that price haha) or has a touchscreen, the only touchscreens I've been happy with so far are Apples but I'm open to anything. A dumb phone is fine, I'm basically looking for something cheap that I can use until I get an iPhone (someday).
    So, anyone know of some good options for me? Thanks in advance!

    The cheapest phone I can find for you is the Sony Ericsson T303i and it costs around $80 USD on timtechs. The phone actually looks kinda cute plus it's SE

    Thanks for the help, a nice phone but a bit out of my price range... I'm just looking for a cheap one till I get the iphone.

    I'd say timtechs is the cheapest i saw around, and its unlocked, nonetheless..
