It's time for Prepaid Phone News' weekly roundup of prepaid phones available at sale prices.
Radio Shack, Walmart,T-Mobile, Target, Best Buy and Virgin Mobile have deals on a number of prepaid phones this week. Unless indicated otherwise these prices are good both online and in stores through Saturday Feb. 19, 2011.
My pick for deal of the week is the Optimus V Android smartphone for Virgin Mobile at Radio Shack for $139.99 (with $10 off $40 coupon) and a free $10 gift card (in stores only). The Optimus has a quality HVGA screen and Android 2.2 (Froyo). In my opinion it's the best Android phone under $400. The frosting on the cake is that you can use it on Virgin's $25/month Beyond Talk plan, which includes 300 minutes, unlimited text and picture messaging and unlimited 3G data.
