This is relative to SMART PHONES.

I subscribe my phone with T-Mobile

I want to get a Smart Phone (no experience at all)

My question: Would you please recommend me related to Smart Phones (From the cheapest to the expensive one) (It will be helpful if it also carried by T-Mobile). Any opinion is greatly appreciated.

Are you looking for an android powered smartphone (open source operating system) or an IOS powered device (iPhone)?

Ranked in price are (cheapest to highest)
T-Mobile myTouch 4G (Free online, runs Android)
Samsung Galaxy S (Free online, runs Android)
T-Mobile myTouch Q (Free online, runs Android)
HTC Radar 4G (Free online, runs Android)
Samsung Gravity (Free online, runs Android)
T-Mobile Prism (Free online, runs Android)
Samsung Galaxy Exhibit 4G (Free online, runs Android)
Nokie Lumia 710 (Free online, runs Windows Phone 7.5)
HTC Wildfire S (Free online, runs Android)
T-Mobile G2 (Free online, runs Android)
Blackberry Curve 9360 ($49.99 online, BlackBerry OS)
LG Optimus L9 ($79.99, runs Android)
Nokie Lumina 810 ($99.99, runs Windows Phone 8)
Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G ($99.99, runs Android)
Blackberry Bold 9900 4G ($129.99, BlackBerry OS)
HTC One S ($149.99, runs Android)
Samsung Galaxy S II ($149.99, runs Android)
Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G ($149.99, runs Android)
Samsung Galaxy Note II ($199.99, runs Android)
Windows Phone 8X by HTC ($199.99, runs Windows Phone 8)
Samsung Galaxy SIII ($279.99, runs Android)
Nexus 4 by Google ($199.99, runs Android)

If you are looking for a great open source phone I would suggest Android; the Samsung Galaxy S II/III are great phone, the Tab is amazing and if you can find a Nexus 4 in stock it is just pure heaven in a phone.

If you want amazing security I would suggest the blackberry, I had one and loved it. It was slow which they are known for so it isn't a multiamedia powerhouse of a phone; but it is very secure.

Windows phone has nice integration if you use lots of windows systems and that is what you are used to; I am a mac person and I have even gotten to like Windows Phone 8 and the smart tiles.

Would you explain the following please:

1) """ Samsung Galaxy S (Free online, runs Android)"
- What does it mean with "Free Online"? [Does it mean I can get the hardware (the phone) FREE OF CHARGE?]

2) """ Samsung Galaxy S II ($149.99, runs Android)"
- Does it mean I have to pay $ 149.99 for the Hardware (the phone) ONLY? (Should I will be charged EXTRA by T-Mobile?)

3) If for example, I get the "Samsung Galaxy S"
- I have now "Samsung 2.0 Mega"
- Say it the number is 818-234-1234
- I believe there is a Sim card in my samsung 2.0 Mega
- My question: I want to keep the above number.What should I do to make the above Smart phone work? Just Swap the Sim Card. Please explain a little bit

Thank you

Those prices are for a new contract I believe so yes free would assume you are a new customer. Since you just need a phone to swap SIM cards in it will cost a little more unless you are eligible for an upgrade. Does your account say you can upgrade to a new phone? As for keeping the same number yes all you have to do is swap the SIM cards.
