The LG 101 is a slim, no-contract feature phone from Virgin Mobile that has all the basics covered. You can make calls, text, check your calendar, set an alarm, and play games if you like.
Although a data plan isn't required, if you choose to get one, you can surf the Web using the phone's Opera Mini browser. Opera also gives you shortcuts for checking your social-networking sites like Facebook and MySpace.
Perfect for those who don't demand much from their cell phones, or for parents looking for that first gateway device for their kids, the LG 101 retails for the whopping low price of $14.99.
