I need a new cell phone *Updated*

because mine is a piece of junk and I have a little over $500 to spend.  My husband says to buy a Samsung Galaxy III (around 450 with sim card and activation) and for some reason I can't justify to myself spending that much money on a phone. I was looking at the more reasonably priced Samsung Galaxy Light (about 250 with the card and activation).   Hmm, decisions decisions...

***I made my choice and ended up buying the Galaxy s3 :)  Thanks to the people who suggested Walmart. We got two of the galaxy s3, $299 each and No-Contract (best of all). One for myself and one for my father in law. I'm happy with it and was up half the night playing with it lol.

LG G2 is the exact phone as GS4, depending on service provider, $180 (includes activation) but with contract.

Ebay, Craigslist bookoo.

Verify the esn.before you buy and play with the phone for a solid five minutes first.

I want that one since it has the cool button on the back for the camera. Is it bigger then the galaxy S4?

Who's your carrier?

Walmart Family Mobile (tmobile based) has the Galaxy S3 for $300, with $25 for activation. I just got one and I love the thing, just upgraded from an S2.

The screen is a bit larger, but not by much. I barely use the back button, basically you hold it down for 3 seconds and the camera pops up, lol. It's almost quicker, to tap the phone, and access the camera.
