    Check craigslist, you can usually get a pretty cheap phone off their. At least to hold you over.

    craigslist is probably your best bet.

    Droid 2 is going for fairly cheap last I checked it out for a friend and it's a nice phone to hold you over.

    the rumor is that possibly Nov. 10 is the release date, but this is unconfirmed.

    If it's that close and if I were in your shoes, I would've waited the small amount of time and just put up with BB. Your money though;)

    factory reset wipes all data; email, saved files, music, pictures, passwords, etc. you revert it back to how it was from the factory.

    Before buying phones via craigslist (or wherever), always make sure to check the ESN/MEID number to ensure that the phone has not been reported stolen or lost. I have done this for every phone I've bought on craigslist simply by calling Verizon tech support but I have heard that you can also look it up online. Sorry about your luck though, atleast now hopefully it won't happen again!

    That sucks. :eek:(

    Another option (for the future) is to have the seller meet you at the local Verizon so they can check it prior to the transaction. If the guy won't meet you at the store, you know something is up.
