I just received an AT&T letter offering me a free phone upgrade due to network changes. No contract obligations or extensions whatsoever, but I do need to add a data plan if I choose a smart phone. The cheapest data plan is 20 dollars, so I am thinking I will be getting a smartphone for around 20 bucks. I can choose from the following smart phones: HTC Desire 626 and Microsoft Lumia 640 XL.
My question is which phone is better and which one would you choose? Pros? Cons? Are they easy to use? I am thinking about getting these phones for my parents who are not tech saavy and my sister who is more tech saavy. Which one would be better for my parents? Which one would be better for my sister? Can I use these phones on Cricket Wireless?
I am hoping to get the smartphone upgrade and switch over to Cricket Wireless within the month to save money. AT&T is simply getting too expensive.
Would love to know your thoughts.
Thanks ahead of time!
