Is there a cheap phone that's better than the LG CU500?

I currently have an LG CU500 that I really like, for the most part. Decent camera (1.3 MP, but good quality), loud speaker, microSD card, and good call quality. Unfortunately, the camera just decided to die on me- colors are all funky, and a full reset didn't fix it.

I got this one almost-new off eBay for about $60 over a year ago, and I could replace it for even less- but I was hoping to get a different one- maybe with support for full-length MP3 ringtones and an SD slot that's not underneath the battery?

I'm going to be using this with T-Mobile Prepaid for now, so it also needs to be a GSM phone. Bottom line is, I want a cell phone with good call quality and a decent camera, that sells for less than $100 new unlocked.

Thanks for any advice!
