    Galaxy Y? Its the cheapest I can see that will somehow be ok. Although going cheep will mean you won't get to really see Android in action too much. There's too much taken away that its not much different from dumb-phones except for more games. The smaller screen and weaker hardware makes it bad for using most other apps that higher end Android can use. Instagram, as an example of a popular smartphone app, needs an OpenGL ES capable graphics chip, which cheaper Androids don't have. Evernote, another popular productivity app, is difficult to work with in a sub 3.5in screen like those on cheaper devices.

    My friend got a Pantech from AT&T I think, was 99 cents. A decent phone too, looks like a BB without the keyboard on the front

    Do you have a price range? You'd probably be best served picking up something used.
