Amazon Wireless is a new online store that makes getting a new cell contract or renewing your contract much simpler. By simple I am talking about avoiding traffic and drive times, long store lines, occasional incompetence and apathy (from the workers), limited phone selection in the stores.
Amazon Wireless offers you heaps of information as you are looking for a phone; it’s a great research tool with lots of pictures and reviews. They offer free, two-day shipping on all orders. They also have lots of $.01 phones and there are no hoops or extra requirements to get the after-rebate pricing.
They offer plans for AT&T (but not the iPhone), Verizon and T-Mobile.
