    Near-mint, plenty in stock, with a charging bundle, for $104.99 and free shipping? It's not a high-end phone by any means, but that price is a steal. I'm guessing it's some sort of pricing or model error (perhaps the international version), but it didn't stop me from jumping on one; my Aria was well in need of a replacement.

    It's through a reputable seller, and you'd have to pay through Paypal anyways, so if there is something off about this deal at least you'll get your money back.

    It's definitely not 4g unless you count HSPA+

    AT&T's terminology, not mine. It's just the name they gave their model.

    Update: Mine made it to the post office just half an hour before delivery vehicles went out, so I got mine today instead of Tuesday. I haven't had much time to test it, but other than the lack of box and manual I would've pegged this thing as new - no scratches or blemishes, save for one small mark above the D-pad. I haven't put the SIM in yet as the battery's still charging, but according to the status screen it is unlocked, and it's definitely the AT&T model.

    I'm certain this is probably more suited to a blog post than anything, but I figured there are probably other 'tempers looking for a good deal on one of these.

    Why did you have to publicize this?
    Now there's no way in hell I'll be able to buy it, I won't get the money for it for another ~9 days.

    As for it's legitity, it is legit. I know someone that bought it on October 1st, when the listing first appeared. They got it yesterday and it works perfectly. That's 2 for 2 (counting you)saying legit.

    Damn, there's no way they'll still have any left in 9 days now. I wondered why the sales seemed to shoot up in the past few days..

    I strongly doubt that 97 units were sold because of this thread.

    Just a heads up, they only have 13 left.

    Add it to your watch list, then view your watch list. "Quantity available: 13"

    If one of ya'll want to buy one for me, I'd be glad to pay you back and more when I get my paycheck :wub:

    They've got 80+ available that are still locked to AT&T, but you'd probably have to pay another $20 to unlock it.

    For the love of dieties,

    STOP ADVERTISING THESE DEALS.

    Soem of us won't be able to afford them until the 16th at the earliest.

    Huh.....
    Just today, they seemed to have noticed they really underballed the price. Now those AT&T ones are $198.99 instead of $104.99

    No longer a deal to advertise there.
