      The list price given for each...where is that from? I ask because the Net10 option listed (T201) can be bought off net10's site for $19.99. I just got one for my daughter and it is a decent phone for something basic, though personally, for only $40 more, I'd far prefer the LG900, with capabilities far exceeding those of the T201. Also allows for better use of their $50 unlimited plan. But then that's just me. My daughter will be pleased to know she has a phone that's been rated in the top 5! :)
