Phone Recommendation for T Mo to Go or Virgin?

by meloc / July 26, 2007 5:23 PM PDT

I need phone recommendations. We're looking for a phone that will work pref with T Mobile to Go, or maybe Virgin, or even ATT Go or Tracfone as a last resort. We don't have too many requirements, and don't need extras like cameras, websurfing, etc, though it's okay if it has some features. All I really want is:

1. Good sound/reception
2. Ability to personalize individual caller ringtones
3. Preferrably a flip phone
4. Not break the bank (ie: pref not more than $100)

From the reviews I've read, that combination seems hard to find, particularly for pay as you go plans, which seem mainly to use either crappo phones or the Moto Razr for $200+.

Can anyone recommend such a phone?
