Looking for decent places to buy non-contract phones
After the whole "iPad 4 replacing my iPad 3 within 7 months" debacle, I'm really looking to possibly replace my aging iPhone 4 with a Samsung Galaxy S III instead of upgrading to the iPhone 5 as I had originally intended.
My dilema is that I don't want to sign another two year contract with AT&T in order to get a new phone-- I aso don't want to lock myself into an untested (for me) ecosystem that I won't be able to get out from. I tried to look on eBay and local Craig's List sellers, but they all seemed rather expensive and somewhat shady. Was wondering if anyone has any tips for places to buy phones, and what a "reasonable" price should be for these sorts of phones.
