Two consecutive replacement cell phones of mine have died or gone on the proverbial fritz (after I accidentally buried the original in a Subway bag, since discarded) and now it is time for a new phone. I can't afford an iPhone, but my work requires more than my current phone offers. I need to text quickly and frequently, and I'd like to check emails from my phone. I am on a Verizon family plan and cannot afford to add an iPhone and data, but if work picks up I'll get an iPhone happily! So... any recommendations for an affordable Verizon-comptible cell phone (used off eBay is fine, on contract is not so good) that is compatible with Verizon and is durable (very important), holds a charge a long time, and is good for frequent text messages and possibly even email would be much appreciated. Thanks! Don't recommend a smart phone or anything much over $50 used, because I want an iPhone 5 asap -- this is an interim solution until I can justify getting one.
