    Personally, I'd go with either the Nexus or the LG Optimus L7.
    Comparing with these two, the Galaxy Y is really underpowered and it runs on Gingerbread, so that's probably the least of my choices. Yes, it's a Samsung, but that's not everything.

    The HTC Inspire 4G would be nice as well, but unfortunately, again, support has stopped at Android 2.3 Gingerbread. However, I'd pick the Inspire 4G insdead of the Galaxy Y because of the difference in hardware. The Y has 3 inch screen with a resolution of 240 x 320, whereas the HTC has a 4.3 inch display with a decent 480 x 800. Not to mention the CPU, RAM and pretty much every other aspect where the Inspire 4G is simply better equipped.

    I found a LG L7 in the 160 price range. It says it is unlocked international. Will that work in the US with net10 service on AT&T or T-Mobile towers? Will the "i forget" 2g or 3g work without issues?

    The unlocked international one I am seeing doesn't mention HSPA, which is what both AT&T and T-Mobile use.

    Personally, I would choose the Nexus 4. It should always have the latest version of Android as long as the phone can handle it hardware wise. It does support HSPA+ 42.

    I don't think it supports LTE, which is the direction the carriers are going. But, if I remember correctly, HSPA covers most of the coverage area.
