Refurbished Phones

I have been hearing mixed opinions on refurbished phones. I am very tempted to replace my Mogul with a refurbished one due to physicals damages. But I am not sure if I should because of the so called "problem prone" refurbished phones. What are your opinions on it?

I've had a refurbished Mogul for a couple months with no issues at all.

Re: Refurbished Phones

if your having questions and you think your gonna get another phone reardless.

1. Re-lock your phone if its unlocked.
2. After Re-locking your phone load any rom and unhook it while the rom is loading, keeping it in boot loader.
3. Go to your local sprint store, if there not the brightest bunch like the people at my sprint stores, theyll just replace it with a brand new in box Mogul.

Why would this make them give you a new one as opposed to a refurbished?

I'm just wondering because I've been thinking about replacing mine. (I have the infamous "purple line" that recently started showing up in all my photos)

I do have the $7/month insurance, but I'm not sure if that has anything to do with whether they give you a new or refurb.

Re: Refurbished Phones

I was weary of getting a refurb, but it works better so far than all my other new in box phones.

Also, that bootloader trick may not work. My local stores are all douchebags and expect you to give them your phone and wait a week with no phone for them to order a refurb.

Question Re: Refurbished Phones

Just curious...

I had a brand new Sprint Mogul, which I then replaced due to technical issues, and had been provided with a refurb. Since then, my refurb has given me problems with the keyboard, so I tried flashing it to see if a new rom would help with other performance shortcomings.

The keyboard issue is still bugging me, and I am contemplating flashing back to stock rom, and relocking to take back to the store. However--when I flashed it and unlocked it the first time, the "Refurbishment Status = Yes" on my ESN screen was changed to a "No".

Is there a way to change this back?

Thanks in advance.
