    Does anyone know where I could buy a cheap preferably android OS phone? I know dealextreme has some cheap ones but the one I like doesnt have vibrate, which is something I need. I dont care if it is made in china as long as it isnt too much of a peice of shit. I am getting sick of my phone so I need a new one.

    I would avoid phones from DX and those sort of places personally.

    You should check out the ZTE Blade, its the best budget android phone in its price range.

    ZTE Racer is pretty cheap too.
    Like said, do not buy phones from DX and alike sites. You would think that paying there a bit higher than their usual products will get you something better, but no.. MOST of those phones SUCK.

    Well, what phone company would you be going with if you decided to buy one? There is the Optimus V out for Virgin Mobile for $149.
