My deal of the week pick is the refurbished AT&T Pantech Link 3G QWERTY bar phone (image) on sale at the AT&T Website for $24.99.
The Link is surprisingly capable and a lot of phone for the money. Features include a QWERTY keyboard, 2.4 inch QVGA screen, memory card slot that can handle cards up to 32 MB, MP3 player, 1.3 MP camera and a full HTML web browser. It also runs Java apps and is one of the very few inexpensive phones that lets you run multiple apps simultaneously and switch between them.
Other prepaid phone deals this week: (Except as noted all are available both online and in stores).
