    I am wanting a Android Phone. I will spend up to 180 for it. Anyone selling their phone or a android phone for this amount. It needs to be At&t or unlocked. I don't want any scratches on screen.

    For that price... you're going to be looking for a used to heavily used (dinged up) Backflip. That's a pretty low price point... but.... oh well. You're basically going to get what you pay for, and that's one hell of a cheap phone. Very laggy, very little support for rooting and roms. If you can, I'd say try to save and double that limit that you're spending and get something worth while like a Galaxy S phone or even an Aria. The Galaxy S you'd have to lock into another 2 year term, but it'd be well worth it over a backflip.

    Yeah i would up your price range to maybe 400, that would leave you room to buy a really nice phone without a contract, but might as well just sign up for another 2 years becuase most likely if you dont have a droid or iphone right now your going to have to upgrade your plan anyways to give you data options...

    Saw a HTC Aria for $185 on howardforums. I am sure it's in good condition since I know the original seller. Aria is actually a nice Android phone. Good luck.

    For Sale: HTC Aria (PLEASE DISREGARD THE OTHER AD)

    EDIT: In these classifieds too. LOL (ipodlover is seller).

    I e-mailed the guy with the aria for pictures, he hasn't responded. I'm really interested in that phone. Hopefully he will respond soon

    For $180, you can typically get something like a HTC Magic/Mytouch 3g, in decent condition.

    If you could do $300, I have a 2 month old Captivate I'm looking to unload.
