If you need a phone, but your budget is tight, who you're gonna call? No, the Ghostbusters won't be of much help in this kind of situation. Verizon, on the other hand, might have a thing or two to offer. Thanks to a tipster of ours, we now know that Big Red will be adding a couple of basic phones to its lineup...

I gave my s3 to my mom when I upgraded.... biggest mistake of my life. I'd get calls at 2 am asking how to do something trivial on it. Finally took it away and got her a flip phone again...

Dirt cheap? NO WAY! I dont know if you guys havent seen the trend thats going on at Verizon, but smartphones are getting cheaper and basic phones are going up in price. They are doing this to push people in to going to smartphones and it is working. When they used to have most of their basics phones for free they consisted to about half of my sales. No that they have gone up in price its about 5 percent. Verizon is going to price this for at least $69.99 after rebate.

Our cheapest basic phones are $50 after mail in rebate so these won't be any cheaper than that I'm sure.
