Or do you have any other suggestions?
Ebay, by it's nature can be problematic. You don't know who you're buying from.
By your cell provider, I'm guessing you're in India. Otherwise I think you wouldn't be asking about Amazon.com. They're a long standing internet retailer. I buy from them fairly frequently and have since they were just a book seller. I bought an unlocked Motorola Razr from them as the phone prior to buying a Blackberry. They do act a a portal in some cases where another retailer is the one fulfilling the order. I tend to not to buy from them in those cases since the shipping is usually higher, but I haven't had any problems.
