Apple iPhone 3GS

Price: $199-$299

Apple’s smartphone is king of the hill for a reason. It has more functionality than any competitor, its operating system isn’t intimidating to newcomers and with over 100,000 apps available, it’s customizable to pretty much any need you can imagine. (It can even act as a TV remote and start your car.) The AT&T 3G network is a constant source of aggravation, but it’s a price worth paying.
