    hi, i was searching the net for help with my problem and i came across this site, so i thought maybe someone here could help me.

    i want to buy a new phone for sprint but i have to buy it alone, if i bought it from sprint i only get 75 dollars off, or i can wait months to get 150 dollars off and i dont wanna do that. so i was wondering if anybody knew a site where i could get a nice deal on a new phone (a blade or that pda treo thing) without having to sign up for a new contract. thanks.

    I agree with the previous post. If you want a phone for cheaper than full price without resigning a contract, ebay is about your only safe bet.

    I wouldn't go with the Treo 650, as the 700p should be out in April. Also the 650 isn't a EVDO (Power Vision) device. I would look at the a920. It is slightly smaller then the a900, but not as thin. But it dose comes with a transflash slot for expandable memory, which the a900 dosn't have. And the a920 has been getting very good reviews.

    Greeting's ali834]hi. Unfortunatly I don't think a site like that exsists. I was in a similar situation a short time ago and I had to sign a new contract to get the phone that I REALLY wanted. Anyway, good luck with your search! :)

    Just be careful on Ebay. We just had a customer come in yeasterday that bought a 6700 (the pocket pc) from there and it had been reported stolen. Make sure you cover your bases before you buy it.
