New vs. Used ThunderboltGeneral

    I found a new Thunderbolt in my area selling for $225. I was thinking of jumping for it, but there are plenty of people with used TBs that are only a few months old selling them for less than $150, even willing to let them go for $120.

    I am wondering if the TB experts on here think it is worth it to spring for a new unit? Should I just save some $$ and go with a used one?

  3. You could ask for the esn number. Then you can call Verizon and are if its clean or bad

    Oh Definitely! ALWAYS check the ESN before buying a used phone. It doesn't matter what the person tells you.

    A used unit is as good as a new unit so long as everything works. Meet the seller in a VZW store.

    always ask to meet at a Verizon Wireless store. Have one of the reps at the store verify that esn is clean BEFORE money is exchanged. If the seller is legit, they shouldn't have a problem with it.

    I usually call VZW over the phone and make sure and then activate it on the spot.
