You can have my old one if ya want. I just activated it while in Moab as it is a tri mode not digital only, it worked great.

Max,

I don't think you necessarily need a "Verizon" phone per se, just one that is compatible with Verizon technology. A lot of the carriers use the same technology anymore so almost any newer cell phone would work. Just have to change the ESN over and you'd be in business. You could also try calling Verizon and finagle (sp?) a free phone out of them...If your current contract is near its end often they'll give you a free phone (not necessarily a real good one but it would be free :)) if you sign up for another 1-2 year contract. Some cell companies even cover handset damage or loss so you could check on that.

Or, you could call a competitor (Qwest, Cingular, etc.) and often they'll give you a free phone, pay your early termination fee with Verizon if there is one, if you switch over and sign a 1-2 year deal. And, now you can keep your same cell phone number when you switch carriers in most cases.

Good luck and sorry I don't have a phone I can give you to use.

Jeff

Anyone have an old useable verizon phone. The kid effectively killed the end button on my wife's phone. It's somewhat useable but it can't be turned off etc because of this. I was hoping to pick up a good useable one somewhere for not that much $

I have a couple of older Verizon phones. You can come over and log into your account online and activate it to make sure it works for you. Activating yourself on line is free.

Someone can have my old BlackBerry 7130e. The face is cracked a little, but it still works just fine.
