The Chrono is about as simple a flip phone as you can get, with a VGA camera and Bluetooth support. It's light (just three ounces), comfortable to use, and has a smooth, attractive body. It also manages to extract top-notch call voice quality, or at least it did on the version we tested with U.S. Cellular.
The Cricket version costs $59.99 without a contract. That's triple the price of the U.S. Cellular version, which will make you part with just $19.99 for the prepaid phone. That doesn't sound like a great deal to us, either, but hopefully Cricket will wise up and offer a deal.
