    WTB someones old android phone, I'd prefer a G1 but I only have $100 to spend. Unlocked would be great, but I think I can handle that. Thanks.

    If you want a used G1 for $100 it would have to be in pretty bad shape since they sell on ebay at an average of $200 last time I checked

    If you use ATT, you can get a backflip for a penny as an upgrade. Go to Amazon wireless for details.
    We got two of them, and didn't have to pay an activation fee.

    I wouldn't even recommend the backflip as an option dude; it's locked down, it's laggy, the keyboard sucks, and it's mainly aimed at the extremely young audience. It's a bad phone unless you're about 12 with no idea or past knowledge of what a good phone really is. If you do get it, I can honestly say I'll feel sorry for the pain you'll have to endure of a horrid phone.

    Whatever you end up deciding on, make sure you get reviews from several folks--not just one person (that's 42 years old and has used several smartphones since they hit the market) or another person that seems to have a beef with it or people that use it (who's also jst a few years older than the 12 year-olds he targets as the people a device is only good for. Make sure they are accurate reviews from people who have actually used the device...
