My pick for the top prepaid phone deal this week goes to Walmart's Virgin Mobile BlackBerry Curve 8530 for $169.00 (online only) This is $30 less than anywhere else.
The best thing about this phone is Virgin's $35/month BlackBerry plan Which includes unlimited data, email and messaging and 300 minutes. This is by far the least expensive option in the US for a BlackBerry with BlackBerry BIS service.
