    The ones here in MI have them displayed so you can't miss them. Mostly Tracfone with a little Net10, Ready Mobile (a regional Sprint carrier) and Verizon.

    Did you ask an employee? Some stores do not have them out on display.

    Nice deal. I just got mine at Target for $19.99. I was happy to get it since it has double minutes for life.

    i just checked 2 Dollar General stores near me and asked about the Tracfone 420G. you were right, they keep them behind the counter (real genius move on their part right? they don't even advertise they sell them nor do they have refill cards on display).

    both Dollar General stores near where i live are selling it for $19.99. i called another Dollar General store in north jersey a little closer to NYC. they are also selling it for $19.99.

    i guess it all depends on the area where you live...they must have localized pricing due to franchising

    The 420 has edge data which is faster
    Than GPRS and since tf charges by the
    Minute this makes it much cheaper
    trying to come up with better signature.......

    Actually, all Dollar General stores are corporate-owned. However, there is some local pricing control so they can compete with other stores in the area.

    I've dived into -many- Dollar General and Family Dollar stores in my sales territory seeking particular phone models. I've seldom seen the same set of stock in two of them. I did discover where I could find CDMA phones on the rack, which in my large capital home city is an impossibility.
