This Month is the Perfect Time to: Score Free Cell Phones

By Jennifer M. DeFeo

February is one of the best months to get a deal on a new cell phone. And this month’s deals are better than ever with a great assortment of not just cheap phones, but free phones. (Of course, to get the best deal you have to either sign up for a new contract or renew your existing one.) We sifted through these free phone offerings from AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless and chose the ones we think you’ll like best. Some are feature-rich, some are basic callers. The one thing they all have in common, though, is that they can be had for the unbeatable price of free. Happy Chatting!

Blackberry Pearl 8110
Available in red, titanium or black, the Blackberry Pearl is a slim, compact, full-featured smartphone that’s great for e-mail, texting, Web browsing and, of course, phone calls. It has a big screen, camera, and comes with Bluetooth. Great for anyone who needs to take their office on-the-go.

Sony Ericsson W350
This super-slim flip phone is a steal. In addition to being super stylish it comes in ice blue, white and black. You’ll find a ton of features on the Sony Ericsson W350 like a camera, e-mail, and a Web browser. When the phone is closed your phone turns into a music walkman with easily accessible ‘play’ buttons right on the front.

Samsung A237
If you’re looking for a basic phone, try the Samsung A237. It comes in red, black, and blue. It’s a flip phone with a nice sized screen and keyboard. It also has a camera and Bluetooth.
