Nokia 6085 Quad-Band GoPhone for $29.99 w/ free shipping
Available at AT&T WirelessThis little Nokia features stereo Bluetooth headset support, a VGA camera capable of recording videos, email, web browsing, instant messaging, music players, FM radio, picture and video messaging, and - best of all - it's quadband, meaning it will work with any GSM network in the world. Refurbished phones like this one from AT&T most of the time look brand new, however being labeled this way allows this phone to sell for $29.99 with free shipping instead of its retail value, somewhere around $200. There's no contract, no obligation. It comes with a prepaid card, and when you add it to the cart you have the option to choose the pricing plan for that card, either 10 cents a minute / 0 cents within the AT&T network and $1 the day you use it, or - the more popular - 25 cents a minute flat rate. Since these phones are typically being resold at much higher prices, AT&T currently has a limit of 2 per household. Want it in pink?

Samsung A117 Prepaid w/ No Contract for $9.99 w/ free shipping
Available at AT&T WirelessSmall, lightweight and glassy looking on the outside, the refurbished Samsung A117 cellphone hit again the low price of $9.99 w/ free 2 day shipping through DHL or UPS. Not bloated with features, the A117 and its battery is capable of 5 hours of talk time and 10 days in standby. Reviewers around the web that are not expecting to shoot the next YouTube hit with this phone or have it grating cheese, had some very good words to say about the A117, and that's back when it was selling for $60. There's no contract that you're getting tied to because this is a GoPhone. You have the option of two plans, one that's 25 cents a minute on any network or one that's 10 cents per minute but takes $1 off your prepaid account the day that you use your phone. Either way, you're not committing to an annual contract, nor will you pay any subscriptions fees with the GoPhone. Being a refurbished phone should not set you off, since most refurbished cellphones from AT&T are indistinguishable from the brand new ones.

Sony Ericsson W580i Walkman Prepaid w/ No Contract for $109.99 w/ free shipping
Available at AT&T WirelessThis deal again, you're wondering? Yes, but this time all colors are in stock and the phones are new, not refurbished. On the other hand, they come with a $50 rebate, but AT&T has proved to be very reliable in honoring their rebates. Reviving the old Walkman brand, this cell phone / music player combo is very well equiped. Firstly, the calling features include 9 hours of talk time and up to 370 hours in standby, stereo Bluetooth, email access, browser, quadband (it will work with any GSM network in the world.) On the multimedia part it's just as strong, offering a 2.0 MP camera with 4x zoom and video recording, MP3 player, radio through streaming, FM radio, multimedia messaging, pedometer and other fitness applications. It stores everything on a Memory Stick Micro card, and you can get a 4GB one for around $20. There's no contract, no obligation with the purchase of this GoPhone. It comes with a prepaid card, and when you add it to the cart you have the option to choose the pricing plan for that card, either 10 cents a minute / 0 cents within the AT&T network and $1 the day you use it, or - the more popular - 25 cents a minute flat rate, but being a prepaid service, there's no monthly bill.

Sony Ericsson Z750a Prepaid + $25 Airtime for $39.99 w/ free shipping
Available at AT&T WirelessA short while ago we had a deal on the Sony-Ericsson Z750a for $49.99 with free shipping, and that was good enough, but now AT&T is running a special sale on these as a package for $39.99 plus a $25 airtime card. The Sony Ericsson Z750a is a new handset that was released earlier this year with an affordable price tag of $250. It has a very distinguished design, with its hidden external display and reflecting mirror clamshell. The Z750a is a 3G device that comes with an Internet browser and e-mail reader; on the multimedia side it features 3D games, a music and video player and a 2 megapixel camera, making it much more capable than your average phone. The phone has 26MB of internal memory but that can be easily expanded to a whopping 8GB thanks to its Memory Stick Micro slot. Until very recently this phone was offered by AT&T with a 2 year contract for $149.99 and a $100 mail-in rebate. Now you can get it as refurbished (but most likely looking brand new) with a $25 airtime card for $39.99 + $0 for 2-day shipping, with no contract and no rebates. Currently the only color available is purple and pink.
