    The new LG Lucid is $70 with an upgrade and appears to be a solid option. Heck some of the top tier phones are pretty cheap now - Rezound, Bionic, etc. - if you're upgrading or adding a new line.

    The Rezound is on sale for $50. My opinion on ACTUAL budget phones is this: they suck. They're glitchy, and unsupported. Now, when high end phones like the Rezound/Razr, or even the Bionic; go on sale. That is a great time to pick up a top tier phone, for a budget price.

    Can't go wrong with any of the top tier phones, especially at the prices some of them are going for. Honestly a Rezound for $50 is a steal

    The sale on the Rezound is over. It went back up to $199 today.

    This was posted using my Rezound.

    I hope it comes back down soon. That's the phone I want, but not for $200. I'm looking at the Lucid, too.

    Amazon still has a bunch of phones available for a penny. The Bionic is one of them.
