So then this weekend it flew out of my pocket on a ride and completely shattered. My mom conveniently cancelled insurance three days earlier. We've tried to get verizon to put it back on, but that's not happening. They did said they'd give me the 1 year price, which is $170.
So here's where I need some advice. I'm currently completely broke, so I can't buy a new phone right now. I'd like to buy an older, cheap smartphone on craigslist or something and use it until I can get the money to buy either the Storm or another new phone sometime in the next 6 months or so. Who's owned a phone from the past few years that you think would be a good choice and I could find for relatively cheap? A bb, palm, some windows os phone? Anything, I'm just looking for some suggestions.
The 170 sounds very good to me. Also the nice thing about paying the 170 you can put the insurance back on your phone. Good luck.
