What would you do? Blackberry Bold 9000

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I got two offers for a blackberry bold 9000.

1st option: phone is 8.5/10, comes with charger, usb cable and holster. Unlocked. Price: $175

2nd option: phone is 10/10 comes with all the accessories and it's locked to Rogers. Price: $200

1st option the guy said he can meet tomorrow at 8 am

2nd option the guy sent me an email but never responded (I assumed because it was late when I got home around 11:15pm and he sent the email at 10:40pm)

So, what would you do?

Would you go with option 2 for $25 dollars more for a guaranteed mint phone?

Or would you save the $25 dollars and go for the 1st option.

The reason I'm asking is, if I hold out and ditch guy # 1, maybe the 2nd guy won't have it anymore.

Help!

yeah i would actually look at pictures before.

i would personally go for 2nd one, if you can make both wait that would be better then you can decide and not rush.

though best would be save up that 200 add a next 100 or so for a bb bold 9780 bnib

Well I have a 9.5/10 Blackberry Bold 9000 locked to Rogers pending sale atm, so if it falls through you could buy mine

OT... I guess it would matter how bad the condition is of the first phone. I would go for the 10/10 cuz the trackballs will go on those phones if it's not handled with care.

so it turns out the guy with the 10/10 phone never got back to me.

Still waiting to hear from the 8.5/10 guy

EDIT: just heard from the 8.5/10 guy.

He can meet at 2pm. Looks like I"ll be going with that.

And FWIW, I would LOVE the Bold 9780 or 9700 but it's out of my budget
