    Hey,

    I'm looking to get a Pre and recently, my old LG chocolat just died. I really need a phone the weekend of June 5-7th, so you can see where my dilema is. Any suggestions for how to get a working phone for that week, and still be able to get a sweet Pre? I was thinking of renewing my verizon contract, and then canceling it and returning the phone to get a Pre, but that seems risky.

    Any suggestions are appreciated. I'd prefer to not have to get a used phone from craigslist if at all possible.

    Buy a cheap VZW prepaid phone and try to activate it on your account. Other option is buy one on Ebay. Pretty sure there is plenty of sub 50 dollar options.

    ^ What they said

    You can get a flip on craigslist for $20-30 usually and have them activate that for a few weeks. If you can't find one, spend a few bucks on a prepaid but they aren't as cheap.

    Can you link the prepaid phones to your current acct?

    I bought a instinct on craigslist to hold me over. I started my account with it saving my new customer discount for the pre. So I'm on sprint w/ a feature phone
