    Was looking at everything from the Motorola Moto E to the iPhone 5S that's only $150 right now. Any recommendations? Don't wanna exceed the $150 price.

    Take the 5S and run with it. 16GB isn't much, but managing it is easy. Just make sure you back stuff to iCloud, put them on iTunes, etc. The 5S' iSight Camera is significantly better than the E. You're going to get a better user experience w/ the 5S as well. It will give you the best software support out of any phone at that price range through Boost. Tremendous build quality as well. Don't need Sprint to send out updates either.

    Thanks! Yea not limited to just the 5S and E but don't wanna exceed the $150 price point. Also seen the LG Volt 2 for $79 on sale as well as one other I forgot. Yes leaning towards the 5S though.

    No problem. I would pass on the LG Volt 2 as well because the lack of software support.

    If for whatever reason I can't swing the 5S what would be your 2nd or 3rd choices out of there lineup? I just want other option just in case. 5S is on super sale and not sure it still will be when I buy. Thanks

    Probably the Moto G if it has LTE. If not there should be some Kyocera that is water resistant. You want something with good software support though.

    $150 for a 5s is really good! If it could be unlocked, a lot of people would move-in on that deal!

    It can be but its like $40 to do so and there is too much risk involved. Refurb unlocked devices are safer at this junction.
