Buying a used Incredible2
I currently have a (dying/dead) Incredible 2. Really liked the phone, had it for about 14 months. Have had almost no problems until yesterday. Phone froze, when I took out the battery and restarted I was stuck in an endless boot loop. After a couple of unsuccessful complete restores went to the verizon store today. I have 7 months until upgrade and without using heroic measures, the lady basically told me my phone was dead.
Soooooo....if I was to buy another one, what kind of things should I look for. I have never purchased a used phone, have always upgraded from verizon.
Is it worth ebay or do I try an online retailer? I have a sim card in my phone, are there ones that don't require a sim card? What kind of things should I avoid? What are some of the things that I need to ask before buying? What is a fair price? Are there really places that would sell a "NIB" for under $200 (this would be my preference if it is legit)?
Help is greatly appreciated!
