Wayyyy overpriced !!!!!!!!!

OMG, are they crazy or what? For that same price, you can get an 8GB iPhone!
This phone is just a basic flip phone.
Except that Cricket is a contract free carrier, and the price quoted is the full price of the phone, without a contract. Can you get an iPhone for $199 without a contract?

$199 isn't bad at all for a flip phone with a 2MP camera and microSD...
