Hey everyone, one quick note to help with conditions: There are a couple New phones, some Excellent condition phones (Like New, have been opened but no readily apparent scratches) and Light Use (Light scratches on frame, no scratches on screen). I'll be available for the next half hour or so to help if anyone has questions.

Not a lot of Sprint Phones :(

Funny that I paid $300 for an on-contract Bionic and now it is $170. Too bad there aren't any RazrMaxxs or Nexuses (Nexi?) or I would definitely jump!

id definitely be interested in one if there were any nice Sprint phones, since Sprint is stupid with their upgrade program...

These phones are all locked to a particular carrier?

@rookshark: That's correct, at purchase, these phones are locked for the listed carrier.

They won't say it so I will.

I've bought from Secondipity and can tell you that their idea of "excellent" condition is what most of us would call "untouched" ... bought a flat screen TV from them and a Kindle ... both were essentially NEW and the prices were untouchable.

I would not hesitate to buy from them.

As it happens, though, I got a free HTC Thunderbolt as my most recent phone update through Verizon, so I'm sorta set for phonage.

They're normal everyday prices aren't that great, but when they're on sale, they're really on sale. I've bought a new 3DS from them for $116 last year. They also gave me a wallet case and accessory kit which was not advertised. I wasn't expecting it, and wasn't complaining lol. I think they're a legit seller. I wish they had this sale before I bought my phone a couple weeks ago =/

I need a phone. What does "locked" mean? I have FamilyMobile which is on the TMobile network and uses TMobile phones.

@mrsque: Locked means it's tied to the carrier that's listed, which means if you're with T-Mobile the only phone on there you'd want to consider getting would be the Dell Venue with Android.

Huh? Oh...yes...there's an HTC phone on there but you shouldn't even consider getting it.

What? Oh...nonono....not because it's an HTC phone. HTC makes amazing phones. You shouldn't get this one because it's running Windows OS, and everyone will tell you it's terrible. Always has been terrible, always will be terrible.

@mrsque: phones that are locked can only be used with one service provider. The titles on our product pages indicate which provider a particular phone can be used with (namely, Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T).

@nosty: I'm not sure that's fair. I know several people who like their Windows phone. Just look at the Amazon reviews for the Samsung Focus. What's so bad about it?

@whymegawd: Yeah, no kidding. I just took a look at their homepage and they are trying to sell an Ipad 3rd Gen 16GB Wifi for $519 which is $499 at retail everywhere else, and the best part, it's not even freaking 'new' condition.

@johnt007871: Most who've used an Android or iPhone for even a short time will hate how clunky and resources-intensive the Windows Phone OS is. Win Phone 8's even more so, but now it looks like AOL from the 90's.
Oh, and a small percentage of apps available compared to the other 2 OSes.

Too bad, nothing decent for Tmo :(

Another question on locked phones, if anyone can offer some insight: I'm with T-mobile now, if I buy a phone locked to T-mobile will I have to renew my contract or anything? Or do I just like, take the sim out of my old phone and put it in the new one and everything carries on as normal?

vote-for2vote-against

I think I'm going to get that Dell Venue. Seems like the best phone I find that's tmobile, android, <$200 and not going to extend my contract.

@havocsback: Seems to me that every review I've read has mentioned how WP7 is so smooth on less powerful hardware compared to Android. Are you sure you're not thinking of Vista?

Seriously though, do you have a WP7 phone? Or is this coming from other personal experience?

vote-for2vote-against

@nosty: thanks! I actually have an htc now and it is so raggedy! don't get me wrong, most of the raggediness is all my fault but little things are starting to get on my nerves...like the rubberbands I put around it to keep together keep breaking. The back won't stay on and the battery pops out. I'm considering using some duct tape. The side volume buttons are gone on one side and so is the jack cover on the other side. It won't scroll down or to the right. The little plate that goes on the front is missing and the "a" button only works half the time or with extra pushing on it. There should be like a charity event or something for people like me...wirelessly challenged. Can I get a telethon, please? Raise some funds...

@teevee: Just FYI it comes with Android 2.2 and there really isn't a lot of community development for that phone so you probably won't be able to upgrade it or install other custom roms etc.

P.S. Putting a sim card in a locked phone will NOT extend your contract. All the "lock" does is blocking the phone from using a carrier other than T-mobile

in for hd7-- windows 7.5 makes it worth at least toying with.
