Cheap AT&T phone with QWERTY?

Asked by Noelle75 (1 points ) September 25th, 2008

I want a phone by itself- not with a plan, that’s under 200 bucks from AT&T. It has to have at least 2.0 megapixel camera and a full QWERTY keyboard. Is there such a thing? Remember, it can’t be with a contract or plan- I just want the phone by itself!

iPhone. That’s 199,99. I think you can buy it in the Apple Store in the States. I don’t know because they don’t sell em in the Apple Store here.

ya, iPhone meets all your criteria. Not sure if it’s available PAYG in your region, but you can check that out.

You can purchase the iPhone online now and pick it up at the Apple Store. (At least in the states)

Unless you’re into refurbs I doubt you’ll find an AT&T retail phone that is not subsidized for under $200. Remember that there are margins built in to all hardware; I bought a “free phone” from them once that required a 1-year contract, only to find an unlocked version of the same phone offered on eBay for $180. The true cost of hardware is inflated purposefully to allow for these sales margins-best bet is to buy a 3rd party phone that is essentially disposable or otherwise last-generation. There are several sites out there that sell these. In a former life (pre-iPhone), I used to frequent a store online called myworldphone.com

…not sure if they’re still around but worth a look IMO.

it’s a bit more than you’re asking for but i got it on gsmallover.com for 299$. it’s definitely worth it. they have super fast and free shipping. the phone came packaged, brand new, and fully unlocked. and the phone i really great.
