Cell Phone Question

Does anyone know if I can buy a phone from an independent retailer, such as Radio Shack, and be able to use it with my service? Or does one have to purchase through the service provider? I have Verizon Wireless, if that makes a difference.

You have to have a Verizon compatable phone (CDMA) and perhaps more. Radio Shack and other stores sell phones and will update your Verizon account to extend your contract. If you don't do that you would have to pay the inflated price of the phone and then "program" it yourself. I don't know whether someone without special Verizon access can do it; as I recall, the manual does explain how to do it.

See my other comment. Get a list of suitable models from your service and get a used phone on eBay.
