    is it? I think i have like 1.5 more years on mine so im not sure if they will let me extend it just so i can get a new phone cheap again.

    I have verizon and think it works fine for me. are there any other online retailers that sell cell phones.

    You could check the marketplace @ howardforums. They usually have a large stock of the newest and hottest phones.

    eBay is the cheapest. A lot of the vendors in the marketplace on hofo are in Canada and charge substancially higher than finding the same phone from an e-merchant on eBay.

    just watchout on ebay for mis-advertised equipment.

    ie. there was a LG phone photo in a moto titled item

    just make sure you get the esn before you buy it. Then call up the provider and ask if that esn can be used or not...some providers wont let phones be used if the previous person had a balance left on it, or it could just be stolen.
