They won't sell it to you without a plan (cell phone waltz).

I'd offer to sell you one, but I probably can't get one.  Cheapest
place is likely Amazon.com.  They often offer their own rebates on
top of the cell provider/hardware rebate.  You could, at one time,
get a B&W Sidekick for free from Amazon when they were trying to
clear the channel.
