NEWBIE: Need Advice on Prepaid Phone That Will Work in Asia
In September, I will be going to Asia, specifically, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, and Vietnam. I'll be spending most of my time in China, and Vietnam. I need a smartphone that I can use in these countries. Could someone suggest one? My budget is around $300.
I know next to nothing about cell phones. I just have a prepaid one for emergencies. I'd like it to be compatible to T-Mobile, if possible, as I go to the U.S. sometimes and like its roaming plan.
Thank you kindly for any input you can give me.

You need a phone that handles the frequencies used in Asia and also the frequencies used in the US. I don't think you're going to fins one, unlocked, and new, for the money you're looking to spend. There are phones that will work, but they cost considerably more than $300.
