The ZTE-made AT&T Z221 is a basic flip phone that's part of AT&T's prepaid package.

The AT&T Z221 is the latest prepaid flip phone to enter AT&T's GoPhone portfolio. A quad-band world phone, the ZTE-made Z221 has a 2-inch internal screen with a QVGA display (320x240 pixels) and a basic camera. The Z221 is a petite thing, just 3.8 inches tall, 2 inches wide, and .7-inch thick. It weighs 3.2 ounces.

There's a little more than meets the eye, with support for AT&T Mobile Music, mobile e-mail, and a Web browser. The Z221's battery life is rated at 3 hours talk time and around eight days standby time on its 900 mAH battery. The AT&T Z221 costs $39.99 without a contract, and is available for use with multiple monthly rates.
