    I'm currently on T-Mobile and I'd like to get a super-cheap (sub-$100) burner phone that's reliable. My last couple of phones were RAZRs (damn unreliable). I'd love to get an iPhone in the future. No hate here.

    Much appreciated.

    Are you sure you're using the right terminology? :D

    Burner: A throwaway prepaid cellphone, typically used by dealers. Used until the minutes are up, then thrown away so they cannot be tapped.

    I'm no "dealer" but that sounds about right. Well, I'm not going to throw it away for a long while, though.
