If you do find an inexpensive smartphone running the Android OS, it may use an older version of the OS and may not support more modern applications. As a general rule of thumb, anything older the Gingerbread OS (and it will become obsolete eventually) you should not bother with it unless you only want to use the device as a phone with already installed applications IMO.
I am just now making the plunge into modernity, and have upgraded my T Mobile plan to include data. Now I need a smartphone, but I'm a newbie and don't know where to start. I was given an iphone 4 by a family member, but best I can tell, this is not compatible with T Mobile.
I am looking for a simple smartphone, not going to be doing a lot of downloading/streaming lots of data, but do want to access the internet, apps, youtube, etc. A lot of the Samsung Galaxys and such I see are hundreds of dollars, so I've browsed used/refurbished categories, but many of those exceed $100.
Are there any cheaper/simpler T Mobile compatible smartphones that will accommodate what I am looking for?
Any advice is appreciated.
