    Can anybody help with a phone?

    My wife's phone literally fell apart on us. I can't really afford a new one (I am sure you all know how expensive they are), and still feed my family at the same time. Can anybody bless us with their old phone for cheap or free? We are not picky about what it is, as long as it can accept a SIM card (we have at&t service). We don't do the texting thing, we just need something for basic communication. The lady has said she would *like* to have a camera on it to take pictures of our little one, although obviously that is just a plus. We could really use some help on this, as communication has been difficult with no home phone, and a broken cell phone. Thanks so much guys!

    (P.S. We would obviously cover shipping)

    I have a Nokia phone that has never been used, but it's an analog phone I believe, not digital. If it would work, PM me.

    I don't think that the Analog mode will work with the SIM card. I am not an expert on these things, but I don't think that will work with her SIM card/network. THANKS THOUGH, really appreciate you generosity!!!!

    I dont have a phone that will work on at&t's network, but I just bought one off of Ebay from a company that refurbs old phones. It isn't the best phone I've had, but it will hold me over until the wife isn't po'd that I went swimming with my nice phone. It looks and works like new. I think it cost me 30-40 dollars and was on my stoop in two days... let me know if you want the info of the company I bought from.

    Sixto, thanks for the heads up. I posted this on the open carry forums, as I have been a member over there for some time, and got an overwhelming response. It looks like I am going to have a phone for her. Thanks for the help guys, I REALLY appreciate your offers!

    Glad that you were able to get a phone.
    Somebody here would have pulled through for you I'm sure.
    Hey...if anything falls through on OpenCarry then feel free to repost your request here.

    BTW - Does that mean that she will have to Open Carry her phone since you are getting one from over there?
    Because if you get her one from here...she can carry concealed.
    Just kidding...just kidding.

    Thank you very much for your generosity and offer mykeld! You know it's a great feeling that I had when I saw the responses both here and over on opencarry.org. It is really great to know that there are people that would help us out on something like this!

    Also, please keep me in mind if needed. I have two older Nokias that are unused and accept SIM's.

    Well...here is a 2nd..3rd or whatever it is back up. Have a Nokie 6030 and a Moto Razr w/ a cracked screen. Both work just fine, the GF is using one but we're switching this week. Let me know if you need one.
