    Nothing major. I started a business and have my business phone with verizon. I've had the phone for 2 weeks and promptly lost the damn thing. Now I need a new verizon compatible phone that doesn't cost $2-300 dollars. I need to be able to text and send pictures and take good photos of disgusting things and send them to a consultant.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Ebay? or call VZW and ask them to do a lost/stolen replacement and use M1 pricing.

    Go to walmart and buy a $60 phone that works on the verizon network.

    I bought a $30 tmobile phone this way...backed up my SIM to this phone's SIM. If I lose my phone, I can still reach my street teams. :cool:

    Did you get the insurance? If so, it's a cheap fix.

    Can't do that with CDMA. No sim cards and the like... Verizon locks down their phones.

    Can you claim it on your homeowners or business insurance? Depending on your deductible.

    You say that like it's a bad thing. Did you want it for free?
