I have 2 of the Exhibits for my kids who don't have data plans but want smartphones; these are safe from AT&T's sweeps for phones that need their plans to be upgraded to include data!
Pantech Burst is not eligible for this use case but the LG L9 and the HTC EVO Design 4G might.

The exhibit II should be at $100 unlocked, it's not a bad phone but it's not worth more than that in my mind. t-mobile choices sort of suck though because of their AWS 1700/2100 hspa+

|dvsdimsum||used this phone for over a year, just sold for $100 and miss it a little. i suggest peach sunrise if you want debloated stock, or slimbean if you want jelly bean; both worked fantastically as a daily-use rom, glitches were rare and inconsequential. the only drawbacks i felt notable were the plastic body (typical of samsung) and no light sensor (you will have to manually adjust to not be blinded at night, and to see in direct sun).|

|axxiom||I would go with the LG L9 over this phone. The L9 has more internal memory, a better camera, a better CPU, and a bigger and better screen. For another $75 in cost it is worth it.|

I've had this phone for about 8 months and it's not great. I would go with other options. There are three big problems that I've noticed with the phone.
1: It randomly starts vibrating and won't stop until you restart it or take out the battery. For my phone the trigger is when I get a message on skype. It's set to vibrate when I get a message and before I turned off that setting 90% of the time it would start vibrating uncontrollably. At lot of people have this issue, look it up. No fixes.
2: The screen is not bright at all and for whatever reason if you're in direct sunlight the screen brightness lowers it self automatically making it harder to see. Even with screen brightness 100% you can barely see anything in direct sunlight.
3: I had this issue for a little while, but it resolved on its own. With some carriers for whatever reason you lose the ability to send text messages through the native text messaging app. You can receive them, but the phone will fail to send text messages and there are no fixes for this issue. It's a problem a lot of people have had as well. You can search for it on google.
For problems 1 and 3 samsung has not found a fix and does not take blame for it, so I don't see it being fixed. For 2 I havent really tried fixing it, but I couldn't find a setting to stop the change in brightness on its' own. It might be a feature of android and not the phone itself. If you can deal with the three above problems and the okay call quality than go for it. Also, someone mentioned earlier that there are issues of clicking when you make phone calls. That happens for me from time to time as well.

Adding to the above, there's also the pantech burst unlocked for $130. 4 inch screen, nice display, Dual core, 1GB ram, 16gb internal, SD slot, Android 4.0.x OS:
I have it. Battery life may not be that good but I like it.
The phone in this thread has a 3.7 inch, single core processor. hmmmm. It may be a more polished product than the Pantech, not sure.
Wonder why not more people are buying the pantech burst. Its no Samsung GS3 but still, the price is (still) real good. Used to be $99 but even at 130 its good I think.

I had this Exhibit 2 4G for about 2 months, it doesnt even have 512mb of ram as stated - more like around 350mb or less..
There are many other better choices out there - even the Samsung Focus 2 for $149 that was also advertised on ebay brand new is a beast compared to this.
Skip this phone. It will only get slower and slower by time.
