This might not be the most powerful Android device out there (duh!), but for only $39, it's still a great entry-level and/or backup smartphone. It runs on Android 2.3.7, has a 3.5-inch HVGA touchscreen, 800MHz processor (actually runs at 1024MHz according to independent CPU tests), Wi-Fi and microSD capability, 5MP autofocus rear-facing camera and camcorder with flash.
Rep / thumb / share!
This phone will work on the $25 grandfathered plan; it has been confirmed! DON'T CALL Virgin Mobile about this or they will find a way to pull the plug on this.
This is a CDMA device, it will not work on any GSM networks worldwide.

Once I downloaded Power Tune Up and tweaked the settings just a little, I can get the Elite battery to go throughout the day until I get home with moderate use. Obviously there are lots of battery savers out there, but Power Tune Up is one of the better ones I've found, plus others rate it 4.4 out of 5.
When I bought mine a few minutes ago the clerk offered a 2 year protection plan for $8.99. I figured for 2 years I can play around with this thing and if it messes up or bricks somehow, it'll be worth it!
UPDATE: Independent CPU benchmarks for his phone actually found it has a 1024Mhz processor despite the official specs listing it at 800MHz on the box.
Some RS managers will demand that you activate the phone with them in order to get the deal. Just tell them it's a gift and the recipient will activate it whenever he/she feels like.
Some RS managers will even refuse to take the $10 off $20 coupon. Just remind them it is currently advertised on Radioshack's official corporate Facebook page.
