    Cell Phones

    Does anyone know of a website that you can just buy the cell phone for a certain carrier without having to sign up for a plan. I know that www.letstalk.com use to allow you to just purchase the phone that you wanted at a lower price than you could get from that carrier. But they no longer allow that you now have to sign up for a contract to buy a phone from them.

    So basically what I am wanting it to just buy the cell phone not a service plan.

    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    I've had good luck going through the manufacturer. Most will have some set for the carrier and some with the carrier not set. You won't get any nifty deals on it though.

    eBay is usually a good choice for an unlocked phone.

    That's what I would recommend also. I go there to get extra batteries and anything else I need for my phone. Never had a problem yet (knocking on wood).

    I had a phone crap out on me but still had like a year before I could upgrade through my carrier. I went to Ebay and bought a refurbished phone. When I got it in the mail I called my carrier and switched the ESN on my account to the new phone. I think they charged me $10.

    The point is you could buy a phone on Ebay that's refurbished very cheap and you don't need a contract to get it. This is a good idea for 911 access in an emergency (no plan is needed for emergency calls, federal law requires the companies to let your call through.)

    That which does not kill me, better start fucking running.

    Craigslist is also a good place to check. Go to google.com and type in used cell phones.... you'll get a combination of both used and new.

    Verizon has a pay-as-you-go phone available at retail stores.
