LG Cosmos 3 and Revere 2 basic phones coming to Verizon

LG Cosmos 3 and Revere 2 basic phones coming to Verizon
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. The LG Cosmos 3 and LG Revere 2 are both present on the carrier's rebate form, which leads us to believe that the two will hit the shelves pretty soon.

Unfortunately, we don't have any further information about the two handsets. What we think is pretty safe to say, however, is that both of them will be dirt cheap. Also, chances are that the LG Cosmos 3 will be a side-slider with a full QWERTY keyboard, just like the Cosmos 2. As for the LG Revere 2, that's likely to be a flip phone, following in the footsteps of its predecessor.

The LG Revere 2 and Cosmos 2 have yet to be announced officially by Verizon, but chances are that's going to happen in the very near future. Keep an eye out for them in case you're looking for a back-up phone, a handset for your 8-year old kid, or just something that's as cheap as possible.  

Thanks for the tip!

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.
