Default WTB Verizon smartphone

What I am looking for...
  • A Verizon smartphone in good condition.
  • Must be Android.
  • Preferably one with a dual-core processor.
  • Must be wifi capable.
  • Must be a model that has ROMs available of at least ICS if not JB (or run ICS natively).

My budget is $100 or less.

Just take a look at the spam that tries to get posted here. Great deals everyday from Nigeria.

I might have a line on one from my family. I will check for you.

Do you specifically need a phone or are you looking for a device that runs Android OS? If you don't actually need it to be a phone then there are lots of Android mini-PCs available for less than $100.

The Droid X2 is a cheap phone that would cost less than $100 used. It's got a locked bootloader so there aren't that many roms available for it. However there does happen to be CM10 for the Droid X2 which is based on JB, I think.
The only downside is that the video camera doesn't work on that phone when running the cm10 rom. All the other roms for that phone are based on Android 2.3 and work well.
I guess that would be a good option if no one else has any ideas. It is a dual core Android with wifi for less than $100. It just doesn't really support JB in a 100% complete and working fashion.
