Default Lost p[hone

So I lost my att phone last night... When I get a new one (through ATT
Wireless), is there a way to keep the same number that I had?

Hopefully, he had replacement insurance.

You can not get Insurance for the iphone from AT&T. Some 3rd party company
will but it's about 120.00 yr prepaid in advance. Then you have to accept
the one they send you. Other then a crack in the screen the one they send is
the one you have to accept.

Friend cracked his screen. The replacement was all scuffed up. As it worked,
he had to accept it.

Who said anything about a iPhone? Did you see anything in this thread
about an iPhone? Did anybody see any mention of an iPhone here?

After the mandatory iPhone 'diss', you may just want to look at what the OP
wrote.

Nowhere did he say it was an iPhone.

Sheesh!

Nope. But does it matter when these idiots can get in a 'put-down'?

Don't even believe the story about the 'friend' and his scratched
replacement, either.

If you haven't already, might I suggest going with a pre owned cell
phone to avoid the contract with AT&T, or the high cost.

Wow, I just looked at them. Their prices are good, but they have almost
NO product selection. You'd be better off with eBay.
