WTB: cheap GSM cell phone

Post by ElZorro » Mon Nov 02, 2009 3:25 pm

So my 4 year old Treo 650 is finally dying. Looking for an unlocked GSM, preferably a smartphone with a decent web browser (blackberry, etc).

Just trying to fill the gap until I can get my hands on a good GSM Android phone!

TIA!

Picked up the Blackjack, working well. Loving Google Sync.

And of course, they've installed Android on the Treo 650, just two weeks after mine died:
