Where did you buy your phone?

So many places sell mobile phones these days.
Where did you buy your mobile phone from?

I got mine from the Carphone warehouse, and plan to take it back when ive had enough so i can get some cash back off a new one

How about everyone else?

I've got both of mine from Bestbuy - no particular reason other than that they were having a good sale on. Talk may be cheap - but the phones ain't, and since I don't qualify for anyone's contract networks, I go for the least expensive phone that gives me all the features I want. Around here, that almost always means buying what I want at Bestbuy.

I got mine at Radioshack. They seem to know what they're talking about, and their salespeople aren't paid on commission, so they don't pressure you to buy something more expensive than you need.

Same with me, only now they call it Circuit City .

I can't remember why but radio shack was forced to change their names due to some lawsuit of some sort.

Yay for back-alley dealers. Radio shack...wow, I never heard that they had to name-change. Who would have a problem with them? The best place I think to get phones is a small shop, where they are desparate for business and are willing to negotiate.

Where I bought phone

I got my phone for free at the T-Mobile Kiosk in the mall when i first signed up for the service plan. It was quick and easy and quite the satisfying experience.

Did a bit of running around looking at various ones, but then turned to the internet for more research and to ultimately order one there. It was great being able to side-by-side price compare!

All 4 of my phones that i have bought in the past have come from the carphone warehouse. I feel they offer good deals and the phones never seem to break. They also give alot of good advise while you are buying the phone.

I bought my mobile phone from ebay, it was getting sold very cheaply. When i recieved the phone it was in perfect condition, i think i was very lucky to not get a bashed up phone. lol

I got my phone from a Cingular store. I always see phones in computer and electronic store but never get them ther for some reason. Probably would have more options if I did.
