But all my phones have always been in pretty pristine condition. My poor lil S1 has accumulated quite a bit of dust under the screen so I really don't wanna take it to ebay. I could so see getting a chargeback even after full disclosure.

    So $195 straight up...no ebay fees, listing, buyer worries, etc. sounds pretty sweet. Curious to hear how this works out.

    Already beginning to sound shady. A quoted price is a quote price. I wonder what other exceptions they will have by the time they are ready to cut a check.

    I think I'm going to go this route with my 8330 and 9530 so i don't have to hassle with eBay. PayPal locks your money down for a week and you end up paying enough in fees that by the time its all said and done about all is left is what these guys are offering cash.

    Plus I went with the Droid, and I just wish RIM had something comparable because I love my BB. My wife even told me that she has no idea how I'm going to live without it.

    I will give it two weeks, and make a decision then.

    the Storm 1 is now down to $125...thats a ripoff. No way am I going there - I considered it when it was $195, though I still thought I could probably do better on ebay (plus i have extra accessories), but now its almost 50% less than what it was a week ago? I think ill pass on this site...

    when you say "got vzw to replace" do you mean, for free like a defective phone warranty replacement? or they allowed you to do an early upgrade? If they are replacing "defective" Storm 1s with Storm 2, then I will be all over that

    I used the Droid, thought I'd give it a shot for a couple of weeks and return it withn 30 days if I didn't like it. ...that was 18 hours ago and I'm back on my Storm 2. Though I was surprised at how soon I needed my BB "fix", I spent all those hours messing with the Droid and learning it. At the end of the day, its no Berry.

    Not that I seriously considered not owning a BlackBerry, but for my personal line I wanted to give the Droid a shot and see what they hype was all about..I'll be doing a review on here soon enough, but lets put it this way:

    you can tell that the Droid is a first generation model, and you can also tell that the Android OS is also a new operating system. Blackberry has been a staple in the smartphone game for years, and it was never more obvious to me than after "playing" with the Droid for a day...or less.

    i was on my 6th storm and was about to have them send me #7 but i was not having it at that point. kept calling until i got the right person on the phone, gave them my full story, they put me on hold and came back and said an S2 is on the way! i was lucky for sure.

    ok I had the box for a few days now hoping someone would say they got the money but it seems I would have to be the first to go for it, so tomorrow I'm sending it out. My price quoted was 195.00 for S1, so here goes...

    I am a moderator and you had posted 3 or 4 posts in a row separately instead of one post. There was some kind of a mistake made and we are looking into it. Please check your PM's and try not to post 3 or 4 times within 3 min instead make one post.

    I'm concerned here that not one person has said they have received money from this company. Can anyone say they have?
