humph my phone is chewed

I came home after going across the street for 5 minutes to get wendy's drive-thru and my dog chewed my phone into pieces.
I don't know where I left it or how he got it, maybe I left it on the couch, i dunno but I need a new phone.

I was looking at the new razr v3i online and it isn't available in the us yet, so does anyone overseas know where i can get it?

i saw it on ebay for like $350 but i was looking to spend like $250 or less, anyone know if that's possible? Also do any phone buffs over here know when the v3i will be offered in the us and by which carriers?

this is the one i was looking at, the violet one (yes i only like it because it matches the color of my dream porsche):



thanks in advance everyone.

sorry nikki, I do not know where to get that phone, but I did want to complement you on your style, you have good taste (BMW, Porsche, your many scenic pics, etc.)

how fast do u want the phone? i can get a good deal for cell phones in indo, but i'm only goin back this dec. if u can wait that long i can hook u up nikki
or u can go to www.mobilebee.com
the phones are a lot cheaper if you sign up for a new plan too, just be patient though my buddy told me their customer service is so-so..if u order, they sometimes sound rude etc. but still a good deal
hope this helps

I looked at the stats on phonescoop and the reviews and it seemed pretty good. i hear the main problem with the v3 atleast is the function and options but i don't really use a lot of stuff. i just call people with it and wouldn't mind if it looked pretty nice. i use the camera feature once in a while so i saw it has over a mp camera, that's good. i don't use text messaging, i don't even have it on my plan so i'm ok with that. i'm actually more concerned that it's too much phone, but i don't like the way any of the cheaper ones look really and i don't feel like painting another phone arctic lol.

I have bought two phones from there (mobile planet).

Site looks a little "iffy", but I never had any problems with them,
have you ever used a nokia? not a cheap one but a "smartphone" 6680 is what I have and I love it

I have the Razo v3 and it is more than what I need but I knew I was getting the BMW so I got the phone to use the bluetooth feature. They actually make color stickers that you can overlay on the Razor phones in different colors.

Have you considered a SMART phone like a TREO? They are kinda pricey though...

Depending on where you live in NC cell service might not be the only thing that is nonexistent.

Well I went to Cingular and they said they should be getting the V3i anyday now but they're only getting it in gray and the colors won't be coming out for a while. He also said they're charging like $480 for it and that's with a 1-year contract! What a ripoff! So I guess I'll get it from that site or ebay for like $330 including shipping. I don't think that's too much considering its pretty and it doubles as an mp3 player which I don't currently have...never got into the whole ipod thing. Even with the standard card I can hold like 2-4 CDs I think, which is good enough for me, and it has 1.3mp camera. I think $300 is fine.

So I got it on ebay for $330 and it comes with a bunch of free stuff, guy has like 40,000 positive feedback and it is sent out in less than 2 days and it's 2 day fedex shipping so maybe i'll get ti by the end of the week.

Considering the usual photographic nature of your posts, I was expecting to see the chewed up phone (instead I saw a RAZR). Oh well.
