So fair Im looking at eather Samsung Galaxy 551 or the HTC Wildfire S. With a quick google search peaple say the HTC Wildfire S is the better phone.

What do you guys say.

WIldfire S is a very popular cheap phone, the Optimus L5 is the better spec'd device at the price your looking. Personally if you can find the temporary phone i have for a good price it trumps all these. Huawei Ascend g300

Im using CDMA at the moment. I don't think I can do that. Thanks for the offer.

Lol im not offering my phone, but if you can actually find that phone, its better than the ones listed there. If not go get a feel of the phones, each of them use a different skin so experiences will change.

You can always get an unlocked phone, and use straight talk unlimited for $45 bucks.

Either this or Tmobile prepaid rocks, otherwise looks like the Wildfire.

How much you want to pay? I'd pick the one s lol smokes all the others but then smokes you bank balance too, In the lower price range I'd pick the desire c, pretty much the new wildfire s. The wildfire s is ok but has next to no usable storage, install a few apps even if you put them on the sd and you quickly run out of space, is a nice little phone but the storage can be a real problem the desire c has much more storage space and a better processor. I'd only consider the Optimus L5 or Desire C, rest are old and lack internal storage.

Sony xperia neo V and ray are the same price as desire C and are much much better.

The HTC One V would be my choice. It's 199 on Virgin.

Going to try this. Just bought an unlocked Galaxy Nexus from the Google Play store and a ST sim, hopefully it works out well.

That's what I'm doin', might wait for the Iphone5 hardware is released though.

Yeah I was planning on waiting for the next Nexus (assuming it will be sold unlocked through Google) but I decided the $350 Nexus was too sweet of a deal to pass up.
