Mobile phones like Nokia's 5800 XpressMusic can be purchased for $0 on a 24 month plan
Undoubtedly the best camera phone we've reviewed, LG's 8-megapixel Renoir is a superb handset. In addition to a responsive touch-screen interface, the Renoir is an impressive multimedia mobile phone, boasting Dolby Mobile sound, an FM radio and DviX/Xvid playback. LG's insistence on a proprietary headphone/charging jack is a shame, but Wi-Fi, built-in GPS and HSPDA capabilities make up for it.
Hot deal: It's hard to believe that you can grab the LG Renoir on Virgin Mobile for just $0 on a $29 cap over 24 months. Online purchasers will be pleased to know that $29 bonus credit will be applied on their bill within two weeks of activation.
Sony Ericsson's C902 is one of the more stylish candybar phones on the market, and even played a cameo role in the latest James Bond film, Quantum of Solace. It boasts a 5-megapixel camera with face-detection technology, autofocus and flash, with a unique sliding camera cover adding to the Cyber-shot experience.
Hot deal: Virgin Mobile has the Sony Ericsson C902 for $0 on a 45 cap plan over 24 months.
Motorola's EM330 may be affordable, but if there is one thing the EM330 isn't, it's stylish. This mobile phone commands a ridiculously low price and is packed with plenty of multimedia features, headed by an MP3 player and an FM radio. Both these features work in tandem with the external display, which features touch-sensitive music controls that are displayed when the radio or music player is active.
Hot deal: If you're really on budget, you can pick up the EM330 for $99 on a Virgin Mobile prepaid plan. All Virgin Mobile prepaid plans purchased online come with $5 Free to V credit to be used in the first 30 days.
