Cnet

The T-Mobile 768 is a good option for those with modest needs and budgets, but don't expect anything more than making calls.

Makes good calls, but expect nothing more

from Cnet

There are plenty of budget phones under the sun, but most device manufacturers manage to slap a fanciful moniker onto their wares, no matter how basic. Consider the Huawei Pal, the Pantech Vybe, or the Kyocera Verve. The T-Mobile 768's nondescript name doesn't exactly exude confidence -- the phone is made by Alcatel OneTouch. And truth be told it isn't a very impressive device, marred by a poor camera, labyrinthine menus, and an unimpressive display...

There are plenty of budget phones under the sun, but most device manufacturers manage to slap a fanciful moniker onto their wares, no matter how basic. Consider the Huawei Pal, the Pantech Vybe, or the Kyocera Verve. The T-Mobile 768's nondescript name doesn't exactly exude confidence -- the phone is made by Alcatel OneTouch. And truth be told it isn't a very impressive device, marred by a poor camera, labyrinthine menus, and an unimpressive display.

But here's the thing: this is a pretty good option if you aren't averse to T9 texting, and want to spend very little on a phone that makes calls well and can get you on the Internet in a pinch. And while it feels odd to be checking out a 3G clamshell phone in the era of the LTE smartphone, you'd be hard-pressed to beat the T-Mobile 768 on price: just $72 outright, or $3 a month over the course of two years. With T-Mobile's Starter plan ($40/month) you can expect to pay about $43 a month for unlimited talk and text, no data caps if you spend some time on T-Mobile's 3G network, and no contract to sign. If you just want to chat and don't need much else, that's not a bad deal.
