I need an advice about Ebay

Hello all,

I am willing to buy a Torch from Ebay(New one not even unlocked so it should be factory sealed as written)

Did anyone try to buy a Blackberry from Ebay and the Ebay buyer protection helped him?(In case you get a defective product)

Re: I need an advice about Ebay

just so u know if its unlocked, it wont be factory sealed, to unlock it they have to enter in the code into the torch, hence opening box..

 

i wouldnt buy any phone from amazon or ebay, i have run into a number occassions where they sent me refurb..

I know that's why I will be buying a locked one but I am asking if buying from Ebay is safe? If not where can I get a Torch online without a contract and price less than 650$?

Re: I need an advice about Ebay

What carrier are you with? I bought mine not on a contract from Telus and only Paid $599.99 came out to about $650.00.

I looked at Buying one from Ebay, But what made me think twice was most of the ones that were on ebay were from at&t and they have there logo on the bottom of the phone.

Re: I need an advice about Ebay

Here is an FAQ that discusses buying off of eBay:

 

Note further that it is unlikely that you will have any warranty on the BB. RIM services no warranties directly...that is all performed by the carriers and authorized resellers. Hence, it would fall to the eBay seller to service the warranty for you...which should be an interesting conversation for you to have with them.

 

Good luck!
