1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    It was a stab in the dark on an eBay listing - Best Offer submission. Hopefully it's legit.. the seller had decent feedback, and there were a handful of other buyers before me.

    It'll be interesting to see how it plays out... :)

    I'm coming from a Tour by the way, which I am so sick of. I need speed, I need a droid! :reddroid::greendroid::reddroid::greendroid::reddroid:

    Did you get the IMEI to check if it was legit?

    I didn't actually - I assumed (you know what they say...) since it is brand-new in box it would be clean. the seller does have a return policy, plus there is no mention of it, so I could always file a complaint if that wasn't the case with good reason.

    The low price does make me both nervous and happy :)

    Thanks. I'm a bit nervous (bought and sold a lot of expensive **** on ebay before but never a phone). but I think the buyer protection policies, despite all their loopholes, will cover me if there turns out to be an issue, even if it does take a couple weeks / months lol.

    Yeah me too... but no way could I swing $600 for new from the store. My contract isn't up until 2011 and I don't think I can wait that long with my tour :lol:

    thats a great deal. if its legit ill be impressed by that price. i've never tried the make an offer before, but i have more faith in it now.
    btw, is it shipping from america? because otherwise it will cost like 50 bucks to return to another country. (my sister bought a fraud ipod nano for $80 and paypal would gives us the money back, but the return shipping was $50, so we just said screw it)

    Yeah, it's coming from Las Vegas. I dunno... I could potentially see it being stolen or something like that. If it is, I will just have to deal with the headache of paypal / ebay and the refund process. It's not like I sent the guy a money order or anything so the protections are in place.

    I'll keep everyone updated :) I'm not in a rush for the phone so I can wait to find a good deal!

    Good, more research looks good. I bought it Yvonne Hajar, the ebay account lines up with the paypal account and everything is verificed. She even has a linked in page :)
