    My family's looking to purchase a family plan but don't know what phone to get. It'd be best if the phone is free but if a phone is significantly better, we're willing to pay a max of $50 for one.

    Are the refurbished phones any good?

    Suggestions would be great! Thanks!

    Hi there, welcome to CPF.

    You posted the same question in AT&T and Verizon forums, which provider's phone are you looking for?

    I'm trying to decide between ATT and Verizon and I didn't find a "General Questions" forum so I thought it best to post in both - thanks for the welcome!

    Thanks, I understand. As for phone recommendation, why don't you try the "www.att.com" and look at what they offer and pick a few and someone on the board can help you decide, I am sure.

    I have only had refurbs from Verizon and they usually ended up being in better condition than phones with normal use.

    I have been told that all refurbs are individually tested as opposed to the new ones which are quality checked by sampling from a batch.

    So, in my opinion, the refurbs are a very good deal.

    I've been looking at the Razr V3, Sony 580, and Samsung 737. Is one of them better than the others? I'd like as thin of a phone as possible since it's uncomfortable when phone bulge out of my pocket, but these 3 models all seem to be of comparable thinness.

    All three have different features and it depends on what you are looking for. The V3 is a tried and true phone and there is a ton of information on it if you have questions. I like Sony Ericson's, they offer good quality phones. A friend of mine has the Samy 737 and has had some problems sending & receiving mms.

    Here is a comparison of the 3, hope it helps.

    Re: Please recommend me a phone!

    Thanks for the link. Is there a trustworthy site of reviews of all the current most popular phones?

    Of the three phones, is there a way to find out which has the best call quality (no sudden dropped calls/service) and sound clearness when talking?

    That site has "trustworthy reviews" of all the phones available in the US. If you read through the reviews you maybe able to get answers on the call quality questions.

    To the best of my knowledge I don't know any of the three having any issues, if it was me, I would rank them as SE 580. Moto V3, Samy 737, only by manufacturer since the feature sets are different.

    I don't know how important this is to you but the Samy is the only one with 3G.

    Where's the cheapest place to purchase plans or do most people purchase directly off the AT&T and Verizon websites?

    Is Wirefly.com any good?
