Default Which MetroPCS phone for 14 year old Girl.

I'm looking at the LG Motion 4g at $150 at best buy. I was thinking the S3 but have since pulled that off the table. $500 for a phone for a 14 year old is probably a little excessive.

I need to pick the phone up today so no internet deals.

What is the best phone in that price range?

Anything without a camera. Trust me, I used to be a 14 year old boy. ;-)

A kid that age doesn't need a smartphone.
Kids need more time doing outdoor activities than wasting time on Facebook and Twitter from a cellphone.

I also concur on the "getting a phone without a camera" part.
That gets rid of any potential "sexting" issues that kids at that age nowadays usually do.
