Cnet

Reliable 3G handset at a bargain

from Cnet

If you want a T-Mobile phone with fast data speeds and fast processing speeds, you'll need to fork over more than twice the money you'd pay for the Prism 2. There's nothing wrong with desiring those features, but that's the reality. As one of the only two smartphones from T-Mobile that are under $200, it's an excellent value....
