I didn't want the contract, I just wanted the phone so I asked how much without a contract as I already have a contract with Verizon and all I got was "Walmart does not sell these phones by themselves. You must purchase a 2 year contract with Walmart's Straight Talk." Even after asking for a manager, that's all I got and was told that if all I wanted was a phone to buy one of their cheap Tracfone or Net10 phone. I went to two separate Walmarts and got the same answer.

So right now I'm waiting till Verizons cost comes down some as I'm not getting a 2 year contract with Walmart's inferior Straight Talk when I have one with Verizon.
Really? That's interesting...might have to make some calls now...
