A Funny Way To Get The Latest Phones Before They're Released

So, here's the good news: It's possible to get the latest phones before they're released in the US. The Bad News: You need a GSM carrier. (Cingular/AT&T, and T-mobile) Here's the skinny: Websites like http://www.plemix.com and http://www.welectronics.com import phones from all over the world. When a company tests out a phone in another country, these websites will import a large amount of phone to be used by people within the US. The phones come 'unlocked', meaning that all you must do is insert your sim-card, enter the service information, and you're ready to go!
