Prepaid cell phone providers were true to our expectations these last few months since almost every major provider enriched its lineup with a new and fresh messaging phone. However, this time, we are not reviewing just any massaging phones but slide-out QWERTY phones, whether it’s a smartphone or a feature phone. All phones listed here are not just prepaid QWERTY sliders 2011, but they are the latest, freshest and released in the last quarter of this year.

If one carrier does it, it is going to cause chain reaction. But, for now, we are more than pleased with the latest prepaid smartphones offer since some good devices are released or announced to be available soon. Read more

A descendant to a last year’s Transform released by a parent company Sprint, the Transform Ultra inherits the ID packs.
