I've been wanting to get an 8330 for a while since I got an 8310 through a job which I've since resigned from (I really like the keyboard and the speed of the earlier OS).
I found an auction and specifically asked if the phone was refurbished and the seller said no (and said it was new).
I got a phone with a red RF sticker on it, see image below
Further, while the body of the phone seems pretty much new, the keys don't seem to have the right pressure/feel as compared to the 8310. Further, the back panel is very difficult to remove and replace onto the phone.
Is this a refurb? (the pin appears fresh though)
granted, this one was made is mexico -- that could account for the shoddy quality of it as well (I've found that to be the case at least with newer touchpads from mexico -- they dont work so well)
