    Not too shabby. Especially if it's in perfect condition and it's sans-contract.

    Gotcha.
    It looks like I can get a brand new one for 300 plus tax though.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~seems pricey to me. I got a nearly mint condition 8310 for AT&T for $175!

    300 for a nearly new one w/o contract is ok. Ive seen em for sale for as low as 175 but not one day old. If youre not in a hurry look around. OR go w/ a 2 year contract n it should be like $150 w/ a $50 rebate now.
    IM BACK w/ a new BB 8220!

    Do you have the need for speed? Then drive it like you stole it!

    Im debating at this point. I can get it for 300 used 1 day or 320 brand new in box. I might as well pay the 20 spot and get it new

    I think that is a great deal if it is mint condition. New they are 420$.

    I would go for the new. Then you have a warranty and a return policy. eBay is over priced. I would check on your local Craigs List, if you want to try for cheaper.

    Let's be honest, you're paying for quality -- besides, you're already paying $300...why not spend another $20 and get a warranty?

    Hope you go for it... and hope to hear from you in the future!
    Best of Luck!

    Craigslist is where I got mine. Pretty good deal compared to the eBay ones I was looking at.

    ebay is a good place, you just have to look for a long time. I just bought my 8130 off of ebay for $210. It took me about 3 weeks.

    If your in a metro area just use craiglist.

    NIB= 1 year Warranty. Definitively worth $20
