I wanted a flip phone, but didn't want to pay the exorbitant prices AT&T Wireless wanted. I found one on Ebay that was billed as being compatible. I got it, and AT&T refused to activate it, saying it "wasn't compatible with my plan." I sent it back and the company called me. They said I needed an upgraded phone that didn't require a SIM card. I paid more, and today the new one arrived, with the promise it would work. No dice. Evidently I'm getting screwed by both companies.

My advice is to ditch AT&T and go with Tmobile or Cingular, they use nothing but GSM phones nowadays and you can switch out your SIM cards all day long with them.



Umm...AT&T and Cingular have merged.

And T-Mobile fucked me over.



Yep. They haven't quite MERGED yet, but will. I don't know the time frame. I'm about to go buy a new phone and just switch over to Cingular. Personally, I haven't had any serious problems with AT&T. Sometimes it takes forever and a day to make a call... hit the send button, and maybe 60 seconds later, you'll get a ring. Weak signal in some places... or getting strong signal on standby to have it diminish to almost nothing when I make/receive a call. The new phone I'm going to be getting should remedy quite a bit of that as it's better than the one I have...

Hopefully Cinglar will also never give me any SERIOUS problems.

I had Verizon and the service was good. I only have my phone for an emergency and a plan is just a waste of minutes for me. So I dumped Verizon and bought a Virgin mobile phone. It has no contracts and is pay as I go, and thats good for how I use the phone.

We used the site Letstalk.com

I called on a Monday morning and by noon on Wednesday we had the following:

1. Two activated Motorola V60 flip phones for only $50 each after rebate. Cingular wanted $150 or $200 for the same phone with a 1 year contract.
2. As mentioned above, we only had to get a 1 year contract.
3. My wife's phone number switched over from Verizon.

All in all, it worked out great for us.

Dave, sounds cool! They don't have the phone I want (yet)... it just released and even the carriers that support it don't show it on their sites yet.
