    ATT. I'm not sure if it matters that they don't sell the 8300 anymore although it would be nice if an 8310 showed up!

    There really are not enough returns for you to get referbs. Actually, the older a device the higher the odds you will get a referb as there are a bunch in circulation. There is actually a way to track a phone and know how many times it has been recycled etc....

    Got my replacement today. Its an 8300. Im sure its a refurb but I will say that it looks and feels brand new. Also, the right side is very tight. On mine, it was loose since day one but i never bothered to return it. Hopefully this will prevent some of the dust that the original acquired through the months. I havent powered it up yet, just wanted to let everyone know which one showed up.

    Check it out. I had to get two refurbs and both didn't work right. Took them back to AT&T and they gave me a new 8310

    Thumbs up Re: Getting Warranty replacement 8300

    Well, called ATT and told them this replacement exhibits the same problems
    as my original one. Got a nice lady that put me on hold for a couple minutes
    and came back and offered me an 8310 in titanium ( wanted crimson but wasn't
    available through them ), free shipping plus credit for the last shipping charge and
    a free car charger for all my trouble. Just figured I would update everyone in case
    someone is having issues with their 8300. Obviously they are getting many calls
    if they are so easily willing to exchange for the 8310. Wish me luck and thanks for
    the help earlier.

    I'm with ATT and they don't offer insurance on Blackberries so my only
    option is the warranty department. Should be here tomorrow. I will update
    on whether they send a new one or a refurb and that should be it for this thread.
