Replacement phone help

by rduffy12 / October 17, 2007 4:55 AM PDT

I recently lost my phone, it was just a free one that I got when I signed up for Verizon Wireless. My 2 year contract isnt close to over, and I the retail price for all the phones is way to high for me to pay, and my parents wont let me pay that much anyway. So I just need a cheap phone from whereever that I can use until my contract ends. I would like it to be under $50 if it is possible. If anyone can find something that Verizon retails, I will be able to get a 25% discount on it through my moms work. If anyone has any suggestions, please reply.

Thank you,

until your contract is up. I usually keep one old phone as a spare in case a phone gets lost. I am about to list 2 LG VX6100's on ebay. I have sold many phones in the past this way. We are a family of 4, and every 2 years upgrade phones. I get rid ot them this way.
