    I have Verizon, and I'm not due for an upgrade for another year. I just need something. I don't need an MP3 player on the phone or the internets. Just a camera for stupid shit and text ability. I don't care if it flips or not. What should I look for? What's this locked/unlocked business? :o

    locked means you cant use it really.. complcated since i dont know cdma as as well as gsm (the type of signal company uses) for example tmoile and att users (both gsm) could trade phones and easly transfer data if unlocked... if locked each others companies will not recognize the others phones... im assuming verizon will do same with other cdma companies:dunno:

    dont go moterola, nokia usually gets great reception, love LG too...

    Yeah, I'd planned on either an LG or Nokia. I have a Casio now :ugh: and it's positively the worst phone EVER.

    So, when I buy an unlocked phone, do I just take it to the store?

    CDMA phones dont get unlocked, you can only reflash them and even then its nto for every phone.
