    Trainn doesn't have the droid site yet and I'm not wanting an iPhone, so I'm wondering if anyone has seen a legit site to get a Droid, I'm not even going to try Lockerz, its not worth the hassle to get to the redemption. Thanks in advanced! And sorry for bein a noob and asking a "stupid question for my first post, ect.. I just want a Droid of some kind like REALLY bad..

    have you tried Amazon?

    Your local cell provider doesn't have any Droids in stock?

    Droid :p Idk if you can edit the title so just know i meant, Droid, because were in the "Droid" forums..
    And yah, Cricket Wireless does have a Droid in stock im pretty sure, and ive looked at Amazon/Ebay/Craigslist, but im 14 with parents who blow all their money on tobacco and crap like that. Im asking if theres a site similar to Trainn or Lockerz that have a Droid, and its been proved legit and not a ripoff. I NEED a Droid (not really, but it would be quite nice, better than my Samsung Messenger II)

Anyways, if anyone knows a site that like gets you points for like just refering people to sign up or similar. Maybe someone could donate their old Droid(= (worth an ask, theres still nice people out there)

    Ok your asking for an android based phone right not the actual droid phone because those are two different things. Android is the operating system on the phone and droid is the type of phone. Do u currently have a cell phone? With what carrier?

    Sent from my DROID2 using DroidForums App

    As mentioned, there are plenty of places you can get an Android phone for free or very, very cheap. The issue isn't so much getting the phone as paying for the monthly data package. Are your parents going to be willing/able to pay $720 ($30/month x 24 months) JUST FOR DATA over the course of the contract? This isn't including the cost of the monthly talk/text plan.

    Well im using Cricket Wireless so i dont have contracts, if i have a phone i want to use, i go in to the store, pay $15 and boom, its hooked up.. And yes, a phone with a Android OS, not the Droid itself.

    Oh... with a plan like that, I can't see you getting a Droid for less than maybe $150-200... all of the deeply discounted/free phones are with either a new 2-year contract or an upgrade on an existing contract.

    I really don't know how cricket data plans work, but as mentioned above, android is a "smart phone" so most Wireless providers require you to have a premium data package (Verizon's is $30 for unlimited). That does not include talk and text like someone else had mention. So I said all that to say- you are more than likely not going to be able to pay just $15 and use a smart phone in cricket. Best thing to do is call cricket and ask them about their smart phone minimum plan they require.

    Wow! I guess its their money they work and earn...sooooo...

    If you are 14, how eaxctly are you planning on getting Cricket to give you service. In place of asking where to get a "free" phone, why dont you get yourself a part time job locally and buy yourself one?

    I sense a severe case on entitlement in this young one Obi-wan....
