    Okay so currently I have the Dinc2 and would love to upgrade to the thunderbolt but my contract has run out yet so I was just going to get one from from somewhere else and swap out. So my question is does anyone know of any TRUSTED sites other than verizon that i could get a pre-owned/refurb thunderbolt for around 150.00/180.00:confused:, I'm already checking ebay and craigslist just don't know of any other places to check. I also checked wirefly and didn't really like it

    If you get one from Craigslist, have the seller meet you at a VZW store and activate it on the spot. Otherwise I've had great luck buying and selling phones on ebay.

    I bought my Tbolt from Craigslist about 6 months ago and had a good experience. I've also sold and bought phones from eBay, I would just make sure that the person has good feedback. Do not buy from anyone that doesn't have at least a 98% feedback. Also request the esn # before purchasing to call vzw and make sure the phone is good to activate. Any good seller should be willing to give you that information.

    I got mine on CL. I think its the best way to go. Just make sure the esn is clear. And ask tbem why they are selling. I got mine for $200 in perfect condition from a girl that was upgrading to the bionic.

    Lets remember that selling, attempting to sell, or eBay/Craigslist links aren't allowed. If anyone wants to post an item for sale, please head over to Android Forum

    I don't mean to ruin the conversation by posting that. The idea of having a section for members to sell items on DF has been tossed around. But as of now those are the rules.
