My 6th Palm Pre is already a refurb
Insight on the pre people why so many replacements maybey hes trying to get another phone
I have had cell-phones since '96 and when refurbs started, I took advantage of the discounts.
I can say I never had any real issues with Pre-Owned. Only once did I have one with a bad hinge on a flip-type.
It was readily replaced without any problem by the carrier.
People are spoiled nowadays and want everything for nothing and whine like stuck pigs when something is not perfect.
Customer Service Reps have to hear the moaning everyday from people not liking how the phone looks, feels, responds, the color, etc.,
You get what you pay for.....period
we have been doing this for a few months now..
Willing to bet
All the rest are user abuse. Cracked screens, ports pulled out, or phones completely smashed.
I use a refurbished LG flip--it looked brand new to me when I received it. Works great, too.
