I asked if the LG Scoop had email and was told yes, bought it. Anyway, I discovered it wasn't what I thought, but waited too long to take it back. So I'm currently looking for a Blackberry through Ebay or elsewhere, since Alltel wants over $500 to sell me one. They said I could buy one and activate it, and change the plan to a data one. That will teach me not to research all alternatives to begin with!
I've about decided on the Curve 8330, and found a new one on Ebay for
$239. Does that seem like a decent price? I'm a bit scared of a used one, not knowing what I'd be getting. Plus, most of the used ones go for almost as much. Any advice? Thanks in advance!
How about this, cancel your contract for $175.00 (at least, that is what it is for Verizon). Go to Verizon and buy a Curve for $49.99.
$224.99 total at that point.
