The LG Optimus Net is an entry-level device that’s been around the block for a few months. It runs Android OS 2.3 and will probably stay there for life, but comes in priced right at $100 prepaid. If you’re looking for an in-between phone until the next big thing, possibly head on over to Virgin (or Bell) and pick this up. The specs are incredibly basic: 3.2-inch display, 3 MP camera, Wi-Fi, 800 MHz processor.

    -and gets quietly ignored!

    This phone is basically the LG optimus One ( a great phone in 2011, that used to sell for $60-$99)
    This phone is Way too expensive, if you are looking for the most basic Android in Canada it should be $59-$79; at $100 you might consider the HTC One V for $175 with Virgin; its the same size and 3 times the phone with a 3.7″ screen.

    Canadian retailers seem to think that there are no sub $100 phones in Canada; they are wrong!

      Quietly, you should keep quiet.
      Virgin do not sell the HTC One V. And why you hating on this unit. For some, its perfect.

    So this for $100, or the Galaxy W for $150-$25 FS or BB…

    I guess it’s fairly obvious.

    The HTC One V is sold for 175 at Koodo at the moment.
