    Ok Long story short, my OG droid finally bit the bucket and died (water damage from brother in laws beer cooler) now I am phoneless and need to get another android phone to keep my unlimited data plan. I have been looking at used thunderbolts and I have seen them go from 50$-75$ but I want to keep it close to 50$ as possible. ANY phone in my budget is always welcomed so please PM me with what you have and your shipped price. I also do not mind if the screen is broken as long as its still functional and viewable.

    My wish list is

    Thunderbolt
    Incredible 1 or 2
    Droid X or X2
    Droid 2
    Other HTC models

    Pretty much anything with the same or higher specs as my old OG droid.

    Thanks guys!

    Damnit Brandon. I sold my good OG about 3 weeks ago and use my broken one(one with vol rocker busted) on a daily basis on the way to work as an mp3 bluetooth streamer in the car. I could sell it but let me look around first at options for you.

    Found a broken screen TB for 60$ on ebay but functional and a full screen one for 75$ but I want to stay around 50$ or my wife will murder me. I may post some things for sale as well :(

    May want to do ASAP though as starting June 28th they will rape you with their new device upgrade fee.
    Eris @ 45+$8ship

    EDIT:

    Check with PaulieG & Fritoking, both of which were in a WTB for a VZW 3G Smartphone recently. See what deals they had got PM'd to them and maybe you might get lucky.

    Really don't wanna have to do the eris due to lower specs than the OG droid but if it comes to it I will. I am going to post my tablet for a trade + cash thing.

    I played with the Eris once. If you keep it with a root+debloat on stock rom/kernel it runs decent. It goes like this Eris/OG/DInc - Droid 2/Droid X/Dinc2 - Droid X2/Thunderbolt in my book.

    EDIT:

    Upon looking around that TBolt you found is the best one per price. Just MAKE SURE everything works.
