I have a Droid 3 with Verizon and love it.  BUT I now need a smartphone WITHOUT a camera.  I have been trying to find through friends, but haven't had any luck.  I need it to download a program called Skyscape for my nursing program.

I have had no luck on Craigslist either.  So I have turned to Amazon, but I am so confused.  What does "unlocked" mean?  Is it legal?  Can I still download programs on these phones if I don't have a contract?

Can anyone help me find anything on Amazon that is a Palm, Blackberry, or Droid without a camera or contract?


ETA:  I won't buy on Ebay after we had someone hack the account and our PayPal (separate emails and passwords) and charged 2 Macbooks to our account and paid for overnight shipping.

The skyscape app is comparable with:


BlackBerry OS 4.1 or higher
iPhone/iPod Touch 3.0 or higher/iPad
Palm OS 3.5 or higher
Windows Mobile Pocket PC (all versions)
Windows Mobile Smartphone
Windows 98SE/2000/ME/XP/Vista/Tablet PC
Android OS 1.5 or higher

Because so many workplaces do not allow cameras, almost all of these (iPhone, windows phone and blackberry for sure) manufacture versions with no camera.

ok so any of you know about any of these Blackberries?  I would only be using it for this said program, but obviously as a nursing student it will get a lot of use.

This is what I have found:

Blackberry 9630 Tour

Blackberry 9650 Bold

Blackberry 9000 Bold

Palm Tungstun T5

Palm TX 

I don't know enough about these things to be able to find whats right for me :(  We have a personal representative with Verizon through my husband's employer, but even he can't help me get ahold of non-camera phones that aren't available to the public.

It doesn't. :/

Quoting jadedcynic:

The Fire could fit into a scrubs or labcoat pocket.

Quoting bellawomen:

I am finding a couple of Tours on Amazon, but the screen seems small lol  I am so used to my bigger Droid screen I suppose.  I don't know anything about Blackberries to know what to pick.  I found some Palms too but know even less about those.  lol

I have a Kindle Fire and we have an iPad, but the device has to fit in my pocket lol

Quoting jadedcynic:

There is a version of the Blackberry Tour available without a camera available on Amazon. I couldn't find an Android, though. Maybe you could get a tablet like the Kindle Fire or another kind that doesn't have a camera. I use my fire like a laptop.

I love blackberry but have the lumia710 windows phone. I want to say blackberry yes the screen is a bit smaller than a droid but all the keys are right there in front. Palms are good as well.

I highly doubt you will be able to find a smattphone without a camera. They are pretty much standard nowadays.
