Update: Well, in this article I wrote about how much I liked the Samsung t528g and how it was my favorite non-smartphone for Straight Talk. I still stand by that statement, but I wanted to add that my new favorite smartphone from Straight Talk is LG Optimus Black, which is an Android phone that runs with the unlimited prepaid plan that made Straight Talk famous. It’s a great phone with a gorgeous screen and two cameras. Learn more about it here.
I am one of the many who have been sucked in by the whole smart phone prepaid phone movement. Can you call it a movement? I think you can because it seems to be a pretty strong trend with companies like Straight Talk, MetroPCS, T-Mobile, and Virgin all releasing prepaid smart phones. And these are the kinds of phones that people are asking and actively looking for.
In short, people want the affordability of prepaid, but the quality of high end phones. That being said, there are some very nice non-smart phones available on prepaid plans–the kind of phone that sits between your normal everyday prepaid phone and the really high end smart phones. Straight Talks Samsung t528g is one of these phones and it’s a really nice option (and an affordable one at only $99). The interesting thing about this phone is that whereas with the Nokia E71 and Nokia 6790 (the Straight Talk smartphones available now) can only be used with the Unlimited plan, the Samsung t528g can be used with either plan of your choice.
