Expensive option for T-Mobile prepaid

Good news for T-Mobile prepaid subscribers: there’s a new handset out, and you’re eligible. It’s the Samsung T659, and it’s a slider phone with a 3G radio. So if you live within the T-Mobile 3G map (check to see if you’re in one), you can take advantage of faster speeds and better overall coverage. The T659 really isn’t much: a 2.2 QVGA display with a 2.0 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, GPS support, and some music capabilities. Yet the device won’t come cheap: $199.99 without a contract. But that’s about the going rate for mid-range phones on prepaid these days. You can check out the selection and prices on from our other pay as you go cell phone providers and see that it’s not the worst deal out there. Still, $200 for a phone that looks like it hit Virgin Mobile two years ago isn’t really something to brag about.
