Can/did you buy insurance for the phone. I remember with nextel, whenever i would break it, i would call and have the monthly insurance put on. Then id wait a day or two and take it in to the store and get it replaced for the usual $35 replacement fee.

Not that i am aware of. I would call cingular and just ask to put the monthly insurance on to you plan. Or go to your online account and add it over the internet.

I remember having nextel for 4 years before i ever added it. and the only time i added it was when the phone broke.

I suggest adding it via your online cingular account before i asked over the phone. Just dont let them know your phone is broken. Its not tricky or out of the ordinary haha.

Piece of cake.

i sold At&t and I sell Nextel now. When you call to add the insurance, they are required to make a test call to the phone to prove that it still "works". I believe you have at least 30 days to add insurance. Sprint and Nextel only give 30 days to add it to the account.

Problem you are going to have is that once you add the insurance it is best to wait about 30 days b4 doing a claim so it dont look "shady". The insurance group can tell when you added insurance and probably wont cover it if you tell them you dropped in the drink the same day you added insurance ya know. There had been many ppl that did this so they got smart and picked up on it.

Best place to get a cheap phone is to go buy a prepaid phone from a Walmart or Target for about $50 or so or get one off ebay.

This is probably the best advice. Can pick up a SonyZ310a GoPhone for probably that much. Otherwise, any of the new AT&T / Cingular GSM or unlocked GSM phones will work with the SIM card.

I just bought a new phone online about a week ago and I remember it saying that I had 30 days to add the insurance. I'm hanging on to my old phone, just in case.
