Any inexpensive no-contract touchscreen phones for Ohio?
Hey. I reside in Ohio and I am currently using boost mobile which is monthly Unlimited calls and text. The only problem here is the touchscreen phones are very costly. I was actually was wondering if there is a no contract phone @ $45 - 50 a month and with free or cheap smart phones to offer in my area.
Thanks for your question. I don't know of any free no-contract touchscreen phone offers currently. As far as reasonably priced ones, I think the Samsung T528g from Straight Talk or the Motorola EX124g (Net10 version offers unlimited) are pretty good deals. The Samsung costs $100 and the Motorola costs $80. The unlimited plans cost $45 and $50 respectively. These are not Android phones though they do run Java apps. I did a quick check to make sure they were available for a Columbus, OH zip code.
Those phones run on AT&T's network. You can also get touchscreen phones from AT&T itself for about $100. Their unlimited GoPhone plan costs $50. However, if you get a smartphone such as the LG Thrive ($180), you also have to get a data package. Unfortunately, their data packages are currently not that good, but hopefully that will change.
Hope this helps
