Should I buy a Touch Pro 2 for $250?

A guy in my city is selling a Sprint Touch Pro 2 (brand new) on Craigslist for $275. I offered him $250 and he's willing to take that. Should I get this? Sounds fishy to me but he says it has a clean ESN and is brand new in box!

I would make sure it activates on your account before handing over the money. As for me, I'm just waiting for the TP2 to become the replacement phone on warranty claims.

That's what I'm planning on doing. Should I activate over the phone or have the guy meet me somewhere with Wi-Fi so I could activate it online?

Re: Should I buy a Touch Pro 2 for $250?

you can call the carrier and tell them that you are thinking of purchasing a phone from someone and ask them to verify the ESN, I have done that for phones I was going to purchase from ebay.

Re: Should I buy a Touch Pro 2 for $250?

I dunno if its any better going to a store, I just would rather have a person tell me the esn is good. Personal preference.

Then I know its on the Sprint rep. when it can't be activated for some reason.
