Hello. I'm searching for a Galaxy Note 2 on Sprint, and I came accross the ebay best buy mobile solusions website.... Has anyone had any experience with this before? The reason I ask is because they have the phone for eligible upgrade line for only $149.99.... way cheap.

According to best buy customer service, they are new phones unless otherwise specified.

Any thoughts?

Sounds like amazon wireless, only caveat is that if you have an older service plan/contract, you have to move to a new plan.

That looks like a great deal... and it appears that if you have any problems, you can just take it back to a Best Buy store to return or exchange.

 

On the phone itself, get it... best phone I have owned (iphone 3g, iphone 4, EVO, Nexus 4g, EVO LTE, Galaxy S3), and the first that I didn't want to immediately exchange for the next best thing.

 

DO IT!!

Agreed...but unfortunately Best Buy's price on the Note II is $299 right now. Amazon has it for $149. (upgrade prices)

 

As of today I am eligible for my upgrade, but I'm gonna have to hold off until Best Buy's price drops again so that I can get their protection plan.

 

 

Nevermind about BB protection plan. After some research it looks like they're also just gonna give you a refurb as a replacement, and from what some people were saying about it sounds like a total nightmare process.

 

Hmmmm...??...I don't think so scooter...I believe I'll take my chances.

I saw that as well. I'll definitely be taking advantage of that. But I was extremely disappointed about the replacement policy.

Thanks everyone for the comments.

I ended up getting the Note 2 for my wife yesterday from Sprint, and it is a great device!!!... Makes me feel bad when she gets 4G inside the house, and my EVO LTE doesn't..... oh well...

She's loving it!.

The RF characteristics of the Note2 especially on LTE amazes me day and day out... I have the EVO LTE and S3 to compare it to.

Right...but as far as their replacement policy is concerned they're not gonna give you a new phone. At least that's what a lot of people were complaining about on their forums. I also read an article in regards to a class action suit against them discussing matters about store reps telling consumers that they'll get a new phone as a replacement, and that wasn't the case when it was all said and done. You'll have to go and read for yourself...I actually encourage it after what I read on there.

 

There were just too many red flags for me to consider getting it, and I would really hate to see anyone else get duped into throwing their hard eaned money away on a farse.

 

If you do find something to counter what I found, or if you could let me know how your experience went i would appreciated it.

They send you a refurbished phone( the exact name of your phone) The galaxy S3. It's fine, this one I'm about to get replaced is refurbished, I had no problems.

Well that's cool if the phone you're getting replaced was already a refurb (correct me if I misunderstood). But if you have a phone that you bought new and had issues with it and received a refurb after being told you'd get a new replacement...then I'd have a problem with that. Just sayin...

 

...and sorry to get so far off topic. Just wanted to share what I read. ;)

With the sprint plan I always got refurb phones. The plus with the best buy one in the paperwork I got says I just pay 9.99 a month and have no deductible. So I find it cheaper since I go through phones usually quickly due to my job...knocking on wood I haven't had a single problem with mh gs3 since I got it in November.

    • I did mention it before, but I don't remember if I did post a picture of it, so I did a 2-for-1 special the second time around. Ah, so that is what I saw. I walk by Boys and Girls field if the C train takes forever to show up in the late evening, but I cared more about getting home than investigating it lol
    • August update finally arrived for S22+ unlocked tonight 👍
    • You also snagged a shot of the new oDAS in there, too.    I also spotted one while on LIRR above Atlantic Ave. They’re starting to really get rolled out now.
    • I have added T-Mobile eNB 879366, a Sprint convert site, to the list of gig+ sites, as I was able to break the 800 Mbps ceiling with it. I'm still trying to understand the DAS mess at LGA and locate them, but the bad thing about it is inside the terminals I can occasionally pick up the macros inside. It anchors 5G, which is great for a speed boost, but occasionally data hangs because my device is having a handoff frenzy trying to pick the best macro and/or band for the 5G connection.   I have spotted 2 more Dish sites, one on the corner of Church Avenue and East 16th (photo below), and the other is an in progress site co-located with Verizon eNB 81069.   At Verizon eNB 81069, the ports on the Dish panel weren't connected yet, brand new racks were being used on the roof Verizon is on, and it looks like Sprint's equip is still up on the building next door.
    • Neat!  Thanks.  Most of my issues at the moment are from inexperience.  I've never used AT commands and I'm bad at Python.  I'm not really sure what the best way is to send AT commands to the modem; socat seems to work, and there are Python libraries that should do it, but I don't really know what I'm doing.  - Trip
