    Wife needs a new cell phone

    We're with US Cellular, any ideas/suggestions/phones to stay away from?

    Re: Wife needs a new cell phone

    I have a Motorola Slide phone with a built in music player and FM radio transmitter built in. I like it a lot. Can't think of the model but it has a spin dial on the face to track through the menu items. Camera in it too.

    Re: Wife needs a new cell phone

    Tritan is the USC phone I have and I love it. Phones I'd stay away from are the ones that look like gameboys instead of phones..

    US Cellular is apparently doing a sale from 11/27-11/30 where you can get ANY phone for free, all you have to do is get a premium internet plan ($20 a month)

    Re: Wife needs a new cell phone

    For the next 3-4 days US Cellular has all there phones free if you sign a new contract. Great deal, I think the wife and I are going to go resign and get new phones.

    Re: Wife needs a new cell phone

    I just got the Motorola Crush. Its touch screen but not required internet. I am a little bit "phone handicapped" but it is really easy to use and figure out. I am really happy with it. Get the rubber cover for it- so you dont have to worry about getting damaged. I really like it so far. It was that or the jitterbug

    We got our phones about 5 months ago and just got relatively cheap ones. It sounds like as long as you go in and renew for the next 2 years you can get a new phone for free (after rebate). Completely worth it to me.

    Ahhhhh, so they send you one of those Visa Debit cards? Now I see what they are doing.

    Yes, ranging between 50-70 dollars. Last time we got a phone and recieved this rebate, we got it back within a month or so.

    I have the Touch and it's a nice phone. If you don't mind a slide out keyboard I would suggest getting the Touch Pro instead. Brother-in-law just got it on this deal ($70 mail in rebate) and he had the touch before. He seems to like the Touch Pro better.

    I didn't realize you had to be eligible to sign a new contract to get this deal. We area few months away from being eligible to resign...so no HTC for me
