Just about anywhere will sell you a phone. But it is useless without service. May I ask what your attempting?

letstalk.com is pretty good...a bit overpriced, because they sell it to you for the msrp.

letstalk.com seems to include a service with their phones. I already have service I just want to buy a new phone to go with it.

yep. once you buy the phone, the company can transfer service to that phone... i'm sure he's either looking for a specific phone, or looking for a deal ;)

What provider do you use? If I know that I can search for deals.

See, most sevices (like T-Mobile, Sprint and Verision) use service-specific phones that are pre-programmed to work with that service. I may be able to find you a deal but I need the provider you use.

I use tmobile as a service. I believe I can use any tmobile phone or most unlocked phones.

Alright. I will ask my freind the cell phone expert where the best deals would be on a Tmobile phone. Looking for anything in paticular? Flip? Speakerphone? Camera?

Also, check out ebay for tmobile cell phones. Might not be new, but they are cheap

the only thing I really care about is that it's small. The smaller/cheaper, the better.

Sorry, my freind was alittle tied up and did not have the time to go looking himself, but he said that you should keep an eye out for a Samsung r225 or r225m. I have had one before, small, simplistic and last for freaking ever. If you can contact T-mobile and see if they have any more of these in storage. They might give you a great deal on it.
