Are there any phones made in the US?

Or computers.

Or are they all tied to Asian manufacturing, Foxcon or some other similar situation?

2. So..

At least according to Overstock.com, the Samsung Jitterbug is made in USA.

Not exactly the phone I would want, but its a start. Still looking for a slightly smarter phone.

7. I have the Samsung Jitterbug and it is a great phone.

No bells and whistles, but just good for receiving and making calls. It works for me.

3. Made in USA

I don't know of any phones Made in USA. My boyfriend is very techy and says there aren't any.

However, I'm starting a project on October 1 of going one year wearing all American Made clothing and accessories. Someone asked me if phones count as an accessory. I don't think so. Here's the link to my website documenting my Made in USA clothing journey! Maybe it can help you find some places to find American made clothing, socks, etc.!

4. Oh yeah...

As I've been shopping around for American made clothing, I've learned that you can go on many websites, ebay, amazon, etc. and type in "Made in USA", and see what comes up.

5. Yeah, phones are accessories...

The cases for iPhones are living proof... as are all iPhones, actually.

6. I have been sharing this with friends, they all WOW over it:

http://www.fairphone.com/

Not sure how much is made in USA, but they are supposed to be going for fair trade and anti-corporate values.
