Newegg? I can't imagine why it wouldn't be...even if everything goes wrong PayPal will still get your money back.

That's actually being sold by Twin Mobile...no idea about any of that but PayPal will always cover you if you get burned which is why I use Newegg over a lot of other sites.
The only time PayPal will not get your money back is if you send friends/family.

True. Paypal saved me once before. Thanks.

I'm not comfortable buying an expensive phone online. I prefer to do it over the counter even if the offers online have attractive discounts. Better safe than sorry and be victimized by scammers.

You are absolutely right. In the past back in the States, for an iPhone, i just called Apple and picked up the item in one of the nearest stores. Overseas it is tougher.

In the end, after being turned down twice using Paypal, i gave up. It was through the egg but the third party didn't like the payment method. I guess it was not legit.
