Buying a BlackBerry off eBay - BlackBerryFAQ

The only guarantees are those the seller provides, and those guarantees are only as good as the seller's word. If they're refurbished then how are the boxes unopened? Unless the seller means his own boxes he used after refurbishing the units, or unless these are directly from RIM after being factory-refurbished, it sounds a little fugazey to me.

yes, its sound a bit strange, cause the phones are being sold as " new " .

the phone is unlocked, but the description is "blackberry 8820 vodaphone" . what does that mean?

Not sure anyone other than the seller would now what their description means but the following Wikipedia article talks about "Vodafone". Notice the difference in spelling.

I'm looking for a new blackberry 8820. This model specifically, not another model. Since its an older model, where could I get this phone except at ebay?
