Hasn't been much news of late on the prepaid front (unless you count analog sunset, which doesn't account to much)...'til now...
Virgin Mobile's "Flare" phone (the LG LX165) is now available at Best Buy, both in stores and online. The price: $30, as expected. Thanks to forum member "The Sweeper", who has the phones, there are now some firsthand pictures of the cute little thing, albeit at cameraphone quality.
Can't wait to get my hands on one of these...the darned thing actually looks respectable despite being Virgin Mobile!
