As far as I can figure, your only option for buying a new phone NOT through Verizon is eBay. But you have to be very careful as some of the phones they show require a 2-year contract, others are display dummies (who wants these??) and some are prepay phones which when I asked Verizon, they said they can't be switched to a postpay phone. However, there is hope in sight, a recent article in CNET says that Verizon is going to start accepting CDMA phones sometime next year:
