    Broke my phone. Need a new one.

    Hello.
    I have an old verizon zte non-smart phone that broke in
    my pocket while working on the car.


    Could I just buy a smart phone off of craigs and go to a hole in the wall place
    to get my info transferred? Does it have to be verizon?

    No idea how this stuff works or even what's a good phone.
    Main thing I want is a big screen and apps and maybe a sd card slot to watch movies
    and wi-fi maybe have blue tooth. Gps so I can use like a G-tech app just stuff like that.

    Probably a $200 limit.
    Found some Iphone 4 for 200bux
    and a nexus also for 200bux but dont' know if that's a good a
    good choice.

    If you guys want to help out take a look.
    Thanks!

    Don't care about data plan or internet. I just want to use it as a phone and text.

    If you want to switch from a non smart phone to a smart phone, you're going to need to upgrade your plan and get a data package which is another $30-$40 a month, no choice.
    It's also easier to just find a Verizon phone otherwise you have to take a non Verizon phone somewhere to get it "flashed" or unlocked.

    Also keep in mind that Verizon works on a different type of network (CDMA) versus ATT (GSM). So make sure whatever phone you buy is not an ATT phone. In my opinion, if you're not planning on leaving Verizon anytime soon you might be better off just getting a smartphone with a 2 year plan. It will probably be a lot cheaper in the long run. Buying a smartphone out of contract can be just as expensive if not more. Current model smartphones range from $200-$600 because buying an out of contract phone is very expensive, so a used one will be cheaper, but still expensive. A contract phoe on Verizon may cost you $200 at the higher end, and possibly free. You can currently get a iPhone4 8g for free, and an iPhone 4s 16g for $99.99.

    Dang.

    It just seems so simple right. Transfer my info onto a smartphone.
    Ok, well thanks for the help. I'll find another dumb phone.

    How much are you guys paying for a smart phone plan? I'm hearing $2,000.00 for a contract + price of phone like a galaxy s3.
    I'm paying about $50 a month.

    ok.
    2year contract 2gb of data a month is $60+ $200 for the galaxy s3.

    Sounds about what I'm looking for.
    Because I went over my minutes last month and payed 60 bux might as well for unlimited talk/text.

    Do you guys use over 2gb ez or no? the 4gb plan is $70.
