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

This looks suspicious to me, how about you?

    Yeah, I'm suspicious of anything priced too low to believe. Even if you got the phone for $99 though, it probably won't have a warranty.

    Doesn't look right.

    Is the Droid GSM? or is it CDMA? If it's CDMA (which from what I was told, it is) then, it can't be "unlocked" because there is no SIM card, the only phones that can be "unlocked" are phones that operate on the GSM bands.... I know this, because I have an old Treo 650, and I wanted to see if I could unlock it. It was an old Verizon smart phone, and I found, through some research that the Verizon Treo 650's were CDMA and not GSM, and therefore could not be unlocked. (Someone correct me if I am wrong here)

    There is no "unlocked" CDMA phones...

    Storms were able to be unlocked due to the sim they could use also......

    I believe you are correct. The Droid is a CDMA phone and as-such it cannot be "unlocked".

    This deal really sounds too good to be true. Even if they were "overstocked", why would they sell them so cheap ? He could triple the "Buy it Now" price and they would still sell like hotcakes.

    I'm actually ready to order my Droid this week and I would seriously consider this if I had an extra $ 100 to burn. I suppose you could always complain to PayPal and your credit card.

    Payments:PayPal See details



    History:400 sold

    So the that person made 400*100$= 40,000 since the listing was put up.


    400 droids? that alone is quite something to believe

    I just sent the seller a question about the item being "unlocked" and asked if he could provide me with the ESN number so I can verify it is good to go.

    I read this guys feedback, this is a scam. How can he sell so many product keys for windows 7 and numerous other windows programs? He's using a key generator and thats highly illegal.

    Who cares if the battery door will fall off? It's an easy fix to make it never fall off again.

    Gotta be a scam. Store ordered too many is stupid. He can say unlocked since they are naturally but still.... $99 is too cheap.

    If it's real I'll order one for my wife.

    I'm only counting about 150 or so sold, not 400. This guy is going to get himself in a heap load of **** if he's not able to back up what he's saying.
