Prepaid Android Phones? They Do Exist!

Android phones may be one of the hottest gadgets on the market behind the iPhone and iPad. For a long time you couldn't buy a Android or any smartphone without a 2 year contract, which is now just a thing of the past! Cricket and Boost Mobile are both selling Android based phones for prepay or no-contract phone service.

Boost Mobile's Android phone is the Motorola i1, which you can buy only at Best Buy. They sell it around $400.00 and you can use it just as like you could with a contract. I believe they have a $50.00 dollar monthly plan for everything as unlimited. It is a good deal, the only downside is that it is sold only at stores, though you may be able to buy it online via Best Buy.

Cricket has the Sanyo Zio by Kyocera, which you buy online, stores and via phone. They go for around $300.00 and require a plan of $55.00 a month. I also belive that this is unlimited plan as well.

Both are great options for those who want a smartphone for less money(or at least in the long run) and those who do not like contracts. You can also unlock any smartphone leg as well, so don't feel limited to what those prepaid companies sell.

Do you use a prepaid Android phone?
