Personally, I'm leaning towards the "refurb" as well. I know it isn't new, BUT you can be comfortable in knowing it has been returned to the factory and given the "once-over". In SOME cases, a refurb is better than a new one (IMO) because a new one is a crap shoot. At least with a refurb, it's been looked over at least one more time.
What app won't allow you to switch bb without rebuying? That's just horrible practice. Posted via mobile device
The app in question is PhonePlus Callback for OS 4.7.x ONLY (except Tour). I will say MobiHand went to bat for me and the developer agreed to allow me to switch this one time (moved from a 9630 to 9550) but since I am swapping my 9550 for a replacement, its worth its price the first time but I think its unrealistic to charge again for a PIN change.
I called Verizon Customer Service this morning and the agent took care of everything. He was fully aware of the defect/replacement issue, he sd I will receive a Certified Refurb unit with the repaired display. He also asked me to make note of the mfg date to check it is after the repair date that has been published so that I am getting the right replacement. I asked for AM NBD and it only costs $9.99 on my account. I have to travel several days this week and need it before I go.
