My Stolen Touch Pro 2

My fellow ppcgeekers,

Ok so here is my story that I need to vent about..... I've had my TP2 for about two months, which I purchased online.. Yesterday I was trying to send a text, but it was giving me error code 97 meaning I could not call or text..My phone was on lockdown!! I called sprint and they basically told me the guy who I purchased the phone through had stolen several TP2's. I had to activate my old samsung blade phone so i hope paypal investigates and I receive my money back to get another. I'm so pissed with all the rom releases coming soon. Thanks for listening

Re: My Stolen Touch Pro 2

Im sorry for your loss. I too got mine from a vendor online, so far its been 2 weeks with the phone. If anything happened to it, i'd have to go to an old Samsung Blade aswell, as the Touch Pro 1 is being sent for repairs and hopefully put up for sale soon. Good luck with Paypal

Re: My Stolen Touch Pro 2

Yeah thats a shame. I have sold several phones on Ebay and purchased a few too but never had issue, but everytime I hear a story like this it just churns my stomache.

Good luck.

Also do you mind me asking what did you pay for it online? I see people bidding on Verizon TP2 easily $500-$600 on EbAY but if they are just PATIENT Verizons full retail price for that phone is only $489 and then you dont have to worry about it coming up stolen 2 months later... not sure what the full retail price is for Sprint. I saw the same thing with the Rogue , people bidding upwards of $500 when it first came out and retail is only $419.

It will always be a gamble whenever you buy a Sprint phone from another user or whatever, but I feel safer buying a phone from Craigslist than eBay. The couple phones I bought off Craigslist, I'd always have the seller meet up at a Sprint store to verify the ESN is clean, but one occasion (back in August) I bought a Touch Pro off Craigslist from a girl, took the chance and her word, and ended up getting burned. Gotsa be careful out here these days.

Re: My Stolen Touch Pro 2

How come they lock the phone up two months later?

My phone was stolen too and I just had it activated few days ago.

Sprint called me and ask me to confirm the seller. He did said nothing is going to happen to me. Check my other thread that I posted.

Re: My Stolen Touch Pro 2

I bought my TP2 off craigslist for $380.

Met up at the guys house (don't normally do that!!) activated it with him to make sure the esn was clean.

How could it come up as a bad esn after that long???

Re: My Stolen Touch Pro 2

i rather deal with craigslist than ebay.... bcuz is face to face and you could get more info on the seller than ebay as for example: location, car he drive, tags and so on...

i seen a lot of sprint tp2 on craigslist with bad esn and they show pics the phone with all their seal and plastics meaning it is STOLEN....

they get a bunch, i guess from inside source and try to sell then as bad esn and try to tell you a bunch of bull**** that i got from a friend and this and that.....

take a look at this, this seller on craigslist is trying to sell what he supposedly said is a clean tp2

http://orlando.craigslist.org/mob/1394213819.html

now take a look at the same seller a couple of days later

http://orlando.craigslist.org/mob/1399466109.html

so be careful out there, when you see a ppl selling a tp2 or other phone and they said BNIB nerver been used or turn on, with bad ESN is definitely STOLEN.....
