My android toasted, need suggestions on a cheap App machine
I've been using an old HTC Hero as, basically, a small App machine and "iPod touch".
Mostly I listen to music and online lectures with it while I'm working, and play Chess. Other misc apps as well (unit conversions, note pad, etc). I use my cheap flip-phone for calls/texts--- I'm NOT paying $30+ per month for 3G data.
I'm not a heavy duty user, although a GPS option would be very nice (no 3G access, I do NOT want another monthly bill.
I need something that I can slip in my shirt pocket but I also want something reliable and that has Wi-Fi (I know most of them do).
Are basically all Android phones useable if they aren't activated as a phone? Meaning, if I bought something from Craigslist at random, can I be confident that it will work as a non-activated phone like my old HTC Hero?
If you have something for sale (no more than $75 or so) that is in GOOD shape (normal wear OK), feel free to PM me.
