where can i get the silver/white lg lx5550 for alltel?
i already have a plan...and looking into a new phone, but if i do find this phone anywhere, i have to get a new plan. anyone know where i can get just the phone? i want the silver/white one, cause i dont like the red one.

It works as a wallpaper, but cuts the edge off slightly. I'm not even sure what it takes to get a contact ID to show up. I've tried a few different resolutions but they never seen to show up. Anyone have any ideas?
