Sometimes it's better to buy new.
I wanted to buy a Blackberry on Ebay because I was hoping for a deal. I found this Blackberry Curve 8530, which was about $50.00 cheaper than a brand new one. The add listed this phone as gently used, and the photo of the phone was not the same as the one I recieved. The phone I recieved was not gently used, it appeared to have been dropped in the street becuase it had pits in the case just above the screen, there is also a divet in the speaker screen, and the lens was scratched up pretty badly. All of the features worked as they should though, so I ended up purchasing a new lens. Also when I recieved the phone the person I bought it from still had service on it, and I it took me several attempts to get a hold of her to get her to cancel the phone so I could activate it under my name. I like the phone, but in the end, I paid right at what it would cost for a new phone, but with no warranty. I learned a valuable lesson here, that sometimes it's better to just buy new.

Great product! So cheap and yet so functional.
I bought this product because I wanted to use bb services without a plan, therefore in metro pcs. They sell their phones really expensive, so i decided to look on eBay for a slightly used one. This was my perfect fit. This phone was listed as "heavy wear". But trust me, it looks brand new. There were no major scratches on the phone's surface, and it's functional. It's just what I wanted, at the price I was willing to pay. I am happy I found this on eBay. this is why I always look here before buying anywhere else. Cheers.

affordable smartphone compares to all the expensive ones if not better
i love the blackberry curve 8530, no contract with metro. it has all the bells and whistles without the fees. Great smartphone with physical qwerty key board, which i love! There are alot of great apps to download. to me it feels like a mini lap top. would recommend to anyone looking for an affordable smartphone which compares to all the expensive smartphones just as good if not better.
