I do not know why, but I believed it could be a replica model of the S4. Even if the S4 is second-hand, I do not believe that it could be so cheaply priced.

usually if you have to ask a question like that I wouldnt touch it.

If it sounds to go to be true. It usually is.

Oh that's really cheap for an S4. I think you should go to a legit site.

Definitely a knockoff or a scam. No one would want to sell such an expensive phone for such a low price.

There has to be a catch. There is NO WAY that this,or,any brand new high-end/flagship smartphone is this inexpensive off-contract.

I see they're listed as having office(s)in Austin,TX. & have a phone number listed.
Why don't you contact them & fill us in on the details/results.

To be exact, the S4 comes in White Frost and Black Mist. I went to check and some of their information were incorrect.

Color me cynical, but I'd be STUNNED if this was legit! Sounds to me like those Gicci handbags and Ralex watches you can buy on the street in NYC (don't go trying to buy any sugary soft drinks, though)!

Wait a minute, this has to be true! Everything on the internet is true, isn't it?

Apologies for my sarcasm. Second cup of coffee just kicked in...

No way.

If it were possible to buy them at that price, you could become rich quickly. Either this is a complete fraud or these are not real S4s.

Most probably a replica or a scam. Wow the seller must be bankrupt sooner or later if he were to sell authentic S4s at that price.

Does anyone else find it odd that the person who posted this question only has two posts, which are the same exact posts in two forums on the board, and no other posts to this persons name...

Hmmmm...
