Additional Comments:
carsmovies advertises a NIB Bold for sale. We make the deal Saturday, I paypal him the money, he gets it, all is well. He then tells me that he doesn't actually have the phone but has a UPS tracking number that says it will be delivered Monday. No problem. He can just turn around and ship it. Thats great! I have no problem with that. Then I get a PM on Monday that he has the phone. Great news! He asks if I mind if he makes a quick test call on the phone to compare to his. "Thanks for asking" I say.....go ahead. No problem. Then I send him a PM. "How does my Bold sound? " He says back, "Just the same as mine." Then only a few minutes later, I get another PM. "Hey, so I hope you don't mind, but I am going to ship you MY Bold, not the new one. But don't worry, it was only used for a few days and I have already upgraded the OS for you." I said, "Um, yeah I do mind. I bought and paid for a NIB one and thats the one I want." So he says back, "Sorry, but that is what I am going to do because I want to make sure the one I signed a contract for is the one on my Rogers account, not the one I bought outright." There is obviously something he doesn't like about HIS Bold or else he wouldn't have asked me if he could make a test call and compare the two and THEN decide to send me his. If it were in fact the case that he wanted to keep the phone he bought on contract all along, he would have mentioned that before asking if he could make a test call, etc.

carsmovies did not complete the sell he advertised, agreed to, and took payment for. He wanted to send me a used phone after the fact. The only reason I give him a 1/10 instead of a 0 is because he did refund the money promptly. I will definitely not be dealing with him again.
