If you are looking for a free cell phone they aren't typically too hard to fine. Most carriers offered many phones for free after rebate. If you don't find the phone you like free at the store make sure you check the carrier's Internet site to see if they have the phone you want their.

A lot of carriers have outrages termination fees to keep you from switching cell phone services.  If you are interested in changing your cell phone provider and want to avoid the termination fee use http://www.celltradeusa.com or http://www.cellswapper.com . They will only charge about $15 to $20 to transfer the contract with the cell carrier's approval. One thing to keep in mind though with these websites is that you may not be able to keep your same wireless number.

Internet service is a competitive market but if you don't use it a lot you can get it for free. Both Netzero and Juno offer free Dial-Up services. Netzero has a 200Mb limit per month for free dial-up.  Juno allows 10 hours of free internet per month.
