    Just look on craigslist for a phone. I'm sure you can pick up a used one for cheap there.

    STEVESKI, that's about the worst advice you can give anybody. I can't tell you the number of people who have bought from Craigslist and then come into the forum and tell us the can't activate them because they have a bad ESN.

    eBay with PayPal is a much better alternative.

    Yep, OG Droid. Or, I'm not sure what used DX's are going for, but if you got a DX you could learn how to mod your every day phone with ease!

    I understand your point, but seriously who buys a phone without verifying the ESN?
    I bought my husband's phone on Craigs and just last month I bought a month old IPHONE 4 off Craigs -my conditions- bring original receipt(which showed serial number, original box, meet at a Verizon and wait with me while I activate the phone then after everything is done then and only then did I hand over any cash.
    I did the same with my Blackberry and three month old Droid X, in my Craigslist ad I insisted that buyers meet me at Verizon and either activate and/or verify good ESN with Verizon rep before they gave me any money..

    not a phone but i would say grab a nook color and go to town. Lots of options and solid design, just lacking a bit in the hardware specs. Either that or my vote rests with others suggestions of the og droid or an inc.......or a NEXUS:)

    the new nexus will probably be my next phone but im interested to see what type of agreement google/carriers/manufacturers can reach on the whole "android fragmentation" issue. Im pretty hopeful that google is gonna kick these other parties into check and force a clean android option for ALL phones in the future
