Anyone have any idea if I can get a cheap (really cheap) phone for my wife that can remote auto sync?

Not one that needs to be connected to the computer to sync as she will be away from the computer most of the time.

Hoping for something about $200ish off contract???

Thanks

What does she use for calendar and contacts? Outloook (With Exchange)? Gmail? Something else?

thanks for the help so far, much quicker response than expected.
She uses google gmail for calender and contacts so google sync ability is needed.

in that case, an android is probably the way to go, what's cheap, and what network?
