    How to tell if refurb

    Advertisement



    Hi all, I'm a noob here and I'm not sure how silly this question is, but here i go. I plan on getting a BB Curve with AT&T at one of the local AT&T stores and was wondering how can I make sure they don't give me a refurb unit. I'm looking to make my purchase next month. Thanks, Bob

    Generally if you get a big discount its refurb, also there should be sticker on the box noting refurb

    Got my Pearl, but it is a refurb. A thought....my old PIN started 2400, then I got a new one (1 day old) with PIN 2403, Now this refurb is 23XX, an older number. Isn't the older PIN number a good clue regarding the age on my BB? Or not? Just learning! tia

    Honestly, I dont think it really matters if it's refurbished or not. I mean it's a functional unit and they wouldn't sell it again if it was defective. Plus, you save money by purchasing a refurbished unit.

    Well if you are walking into a store and buying a NEW phone that phone better not be a refurb it better be a new phone. If on the other hand you are swapping a unit through exchange by mail you can be sure it is a refurb. All units that are in the store are new. At least thats what I have been told time and again by reps in different stores and also by CS over the phone.
    Yes...the BB must have been created and bestowed upon
    us by the Almighty Himself because it is amazingly
    wonderful in all that it does to divert and entertain {LavaGirl}
