With consumers becoming more wary on their spending, entry level devices might be the saving grace of every mobile phone manufacturer in the industry amidst financially challenging times.

lg-5500One such phone is the LG 5500 which is now available on Telus. This LG flip phone can be had for as little as $29.99 on a 3-yr contract. Opting for a single or 2-yr contract will cost you $149.99 or $99.99 respectively. Getting it outright will set you back $199.99. So what do you get for that price? You’ll bag yourself a 0.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, speakerphone with voice dial and commands, and a decently sized keypad making it very easy to compose a SMS or dial numbers.

It’s already available for retail on Telus albeit not yet listed on their website. If you’re not a power-user and interested in a entry-level phone, the 5500 may be worth a look.
