    My local shop charges $15 to upgrade and taxes, phone is $149. Is this the best price?

    No buy it on amazon for the same price. Save yourself taxes and $15 dollar fee by calling *228

    Yeah, Walmart has it for $149.99 and you can activate it yourself.

    QVC has it on easy pay... $40 x5 after tax and shipping(in my state). No $200 isn't the best price but easy pay without credit, I gotta give credit to.

    Target does price matching of local ads and some online prices... plus, if they happen to stock it in the wrong spot (say, where the $59.99 Event should be) they will honor that price as well :)

    If you buy this phone from one of these places, who will the service be with? Is the phone unlocked or locked into that particular carrier?

    I'm interested in getting this or either the F6.

    At the Target near me, they carry the F3 for Virgin Mobile, one for T-Mobile, and one for their own Brightspot Mobile service. Each has its carrier-specific packaging and appears to be locked to that particular carrier, and I do know that the Virgin Mobile version of a phone always is. You could probably ask one of the electronics employees about the others.

    That's a pretty crazy deal for such a decent phone, which once you get the internal memory issue dealt with, the F3 certainly is.

    I got mine around Black Friday off the Best Buy website for $90.

    Edit:

    Here's a link to the phone's page on the Radioshack website: Virgin Mobile LG Optimus F3 No-Contract Phone

    Credit goes to Stitch49 for the find.

    this was brought up a few posts ago and is probably a silly question, but can the virgin mobile version of the F3 on sale at radioshack till the 12th be used on the metropcs/virgin mobile network? thanks very much
