Default Where to purchase used/refurb 7290?

Please Login to Remove!

Anyone know where you can buy quantities of used 7290 devices? I am googling this and not coming up with much. Our company has about 500 devices and they break quite often. Any ideas would be very helpful. TIA

I know only that Cingular will sell us replacement 7290s for $99 each.

My question is - where can I buy 7290 screens?!?!? I have three that have not survived a fall, but the rest of the parts are fine...

Here is a spot to get screens....

www . bbrepairshop . com. I found them durning my used device search. Can't say whether they are any good or not. Sorry

ebay is no good, as I can't buy in bulk or get a warranty. I used to be able to get them from T-Mobile, just like Cingular...but they are now seeing them as "End of Life". I am not ready to pop for $150k in upgrades yet, so still want to find refurb 7290s in bulk...20+ units at a time. Ebay is no good for a business unfortunately.

Any other ideas? Thanks all
