I need to pick up a work line. Looking for mainly voice/text but would like option for hotspot (might never use it) but good to have.

My personal main line is tmobile and iPhone 11, most likely upgrading to iPhone 14 pro , if similar trade ins are offered.

I am somewhat in the apple ecosystem. I have watch and AirPods.

Metro by tmobile has some nice deals… the price difference between the 3 is very minor.

1. iPhone SE 2022- $80. Small odd phone but has 5g and I stay in apple ecosystem.
2. iPhone 11. $99 - I like the phone. Not 5g. Good battery. Works great as my daily driver.
3. Samsung s21 FE - $200- I like it’s had reverse wireless charging. 5g. Samsung Dex looks interesting to try out. I haven’t owned an android since more 4.


It seems most iPhones have no issue running verzion/visible. But certain Samsungs have issues/not compatible. I like the thoughts of getting back into a Samsung but might not be worth it.

My vote would be for the iPhone SE. It'll be just fine for your work purposes, costs the least of the bunch and should last longer thanks to 5G and the newer A15 chip.

The Galaxy S21 FE is a solid phone if you can get a deal on it (and it looks like you might). It's just more than you need to spend for a phone that won't serve as your main device.
