Looking for a smartphone to use on T-mobile for <$100

Looking to add a phone to my family plan ($10/mo) for when family visits from overseas. Don't need much, just looking for something with decent battery life and that can use facebook and whatnot. Would prefer android, but willing to consider other.

It'll get used for 6-8 weeks solid, and then sit in a drawer for 3-6 months, so I don't want to drop $500 on a phone.

Suggestions?

For your purposes I would think it would be more cost effective to just get a MetroPCS phone WHEN your relatives come in. Cheaper because you only pay when they are in town versus 120 a year sitting on your plan

The Amazon Fire Phone is $140 and includes a year of Prime.
The Amazon app store is limited but it does have many of the major apps. If you would rather not use Google Play there is a work around that is pretty easy with about 20 minutes of work.

I already have amazon prime, so how does that work - will it just be free next year when my renewal comes up?

If you looking for phones from Tmobile, then I would look at prepaid tmobile phones from best buy or walmart. You can use any of their prepaid phones on your plan. Think the only one with LTE under 100 is LG Leon.

Yes, they add a year of prime on to your existing subscription.
