I need to cut my cell phone bill, but still want a capable smartphone. Help!
My needs from a mobile device do not justify the $95/month I pay to AT&T. My contract is up, and I want to drastically cut my bill. TMobile's web exclusive plan
has unlimited web and text with 100 minutes (plenty for me) for $30. It is also 4g. I would like recommendations on a good Android smartphone for use with this plan. (People tell me that not every GSM smartphone works with Tmobile.) Features I'd like, in order of how much I need them:
* Sideload apps so I can install Amazon app store, which is where all my apps are.
* Google maps with turn by turn GPS enabled
* MicroSDHC slot
* Front facing camera to video chat with my kids
* Tether or hotspot use occaisionally would be very nice. (For when I travel)
What's the cheapest phone that either fits the bill, or nearly fits the bill? I was also looking at Virgin Mobile and the Motorola Triumph. $35/month with unlimited 3g
. Thanks in advance my geeky friends.
