Default Cell phone?

Alright guys. I've been phoneless for around 6 months (not good...). I'm looking around for a phone (eBay) for Verizon in the $1-150 range. What do you guys recommend? I prefer a slider (or anything other than a flip phone) that has good features, nice design, etc. Let me know!

Thanks!

They are.. But we're still on a contract, so I just want to activate a phone onto it.

^^^^ thats what I thought about my chocolate when I got it, but now i relize its a peice of crap. The screen scratch sooooo easilly, it gets hard to open, the touch sesitive buttons freeze up. I could go on with the complaints but im not. What i do like is it takes nice photos, and videos, and with verizion you get sevice every were.


if you want i will post some pics and vids.

I say just get a cheap phone. If you go with a major company and sign there contracts you can get a free phone.

Depending on how long you have been on the contract for you may be up for an upgrade, I recently learned that my provider gives upgrades every year not only when you renew your contract.
We also just got the Sony Ericsson W810i it comes in both white and black and we like it much better then any of the 3 generations of razrs we have, the Sony Ericsson K790 is also very nice with better camera (a tiny bit larger though)
The first one should not be too expensive, we were surprised when buying it to find that both the reps had the same model.
I like my gold razr it works for me, I just wish it has a decent camera.

I don't want cheap phones anymore, been there, done that.. My cousin has the Black Chocolate (and I washed mine.. yes), I used it a lot and like it. He's had it for about a year, hasn't failed him. Not scratches on the screen either.

Thanks for the suggestions guys!
