U.S. Cellular has released the LG Banter yesterday. It is a candybar phone equipped with a sideways sliding QWERTY keyboard, as well as a 1.3Mpix camera, Bluetooth connectivity, integrated audio playback, GPS navigation and several changeable faceplates. The LG Banter is now available for just $49.95 on a 2-year contract.
Good news for U.S. Cellular customers: the carrier has released the LG Banter, a couple of weeks later then Alltel. The Banter is identical to the Rumor 2 that Sprint offers and is a low-end messaging phone with 4-row side-sliding QWERTY and numeric keypad and a 2” front QVGA screen. It is available now for $50 after a 2-year contract and $50 mail-in rebate.
Alltel has released the LG Banter today. The phone is basically a Rumor 2 clone, and will be available from the carrier for $19.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate with a 2-year service agreement. Note that it's a whole $30 cheaper than the Sprint's offer. So, any takers?
