I live in US and have AT&T. I want a BB flip. I've gathered I need to buy an unlocked one. Where is the best place to buy an unlocked one?

I wouldn't base your search around locating an unlocked device. You can easily get the device unlocked yourself through any number of third party services. Horizon Wireless is a sponsor on this site and you can get a member discount. Just try to find your best deal. Unlocking will only run you $20-40 depending on who you go through.

I would also read this if you're considering going through eBay or craigslist.... to be sure you don't get taken for a ride.....

I would suggest you go the CL route. I've bought and sold several times on there and never had a problem. Sites like this one and eBay can be hit or miss because you can't always meet in person and inspect the phone yourself.
