Where is a good place to get a cheap phone?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
My sister is willing to add me to her line for only $20 a month. I would get unlimited data / email / internet plus the stadard nights and weekends / M2M / and 10 free numbers (Altell). Then we would share her 2200 minutes.

However, I need to get a phone. Is ebay the best place to go?

Most of my family is on Nextel, and the phones do not work with Alltel.

I would say eBay for that one.

Being that you are not getting a new plan, ebay is probably the way to go.

I am pretty new to this whole cell phone business. My dad has always handled it in the past. But my sister has offered me a good deal.

Thats the thing. My sister had a plan... and a phone. But she broke the phone. Instead of having to buy a new one at full retail price, she decided to open another line and then get another phone with the new line (Free). So now she has 2 lines, of which she only needs one. But the free phone has already been used up. So I need a phone to get on the line.

Have you checked out CraigsList?

Ebay is the next best thing or if you can find someone who gets a discount through work that would also be an option.
