where to buy a new cell phone- online?

I need to buy a new cell phone- mine works well, but is about 5 years old, and does not use Bluetooth. I don't think I want to buy on e-bay or craigslist, as I have had some pretty shoddy stuff by e-bay.

I am on a month to month with Alltel- the phones in the Alltel stores are pretty expensive when you buy them outright. I do NOT want to sign a 2-year (or 1 year) plan, as the one I am on now is better- it is an old plan from when it was Cellular One, and my rate is cheaper than any of the new ones.

Thank you all.

Is there a 'regular' store that I can buy a new cell anywhere online?

Most stores subsidize the cost of the phone if you sign a contract with them. If you don't want to sign a contract they generally only offer you the phone at full price. They gotta make money somehow.
