    I have $100 for a cell phone - what brand and model should I get?

    I would put this in mac help, but it doesn't involve macs, so I thought that it best belongs here.

    If you have a serive called "Cricket" in your area, I'd go for that. You get unlimited minutes, caller id, 3-way calling, voice messaging, and SMS (but it's limited to so many characters) all for 39.99 a month. Your not commited to it either. You just pay it month my month, or if you don't want it anymore you don't pay for it any more. They sell all their phones for 100 dollars or less. P.S I have cricket.

    This is kind of interesting, as i'm going out to buy a prepaid cell phone tomorrow night. My biggest thing is that it has to have text messaging and has to look cool... AT&T wireless has a prepaid package for $100 (and there's even a Nokia $50 rebate afterwords) that includes a Nokia 3361, charger, battery, headset, and $10 starter card...

    it took me forever to find a prepaid carrier that has 3360 phones... they're so damn cute and little :)

    now which color snap-on goes with my favorite shirt...

    You can get a t68i for about $125 (or $75)

    Bestbuy is offering a $75 rebate for t68i till end of this month in NY area.. so, $199 phone is availbale for $125. When I checked Cingular website, there is a $50 rebate if you are going with Cingular, so i got my phone for about $75 if all the mail-in rebates is applied.

    There is a phone section at my CompUSA, do you think they will have this deal? I hope so, because now I am all pumped about it :D.
