    Default 'Factory' Refurbished Z30

    Has anyone bought a refurbished Z30 recently? Was it in like new condition and have you had any issues with it? Been offered one for $199 (CAD), looks like new and is coming from a legitimate source with a full 12 month warranty. I'm looking for a new back up device to my PP and am thinking this would be a much better route to go than buying a new over priced Leap.

    Thoughts?

    price seems a bit high for refurbished to be honest. I bought my Z30 from shop Blackberry a couple of years ago for 250 (CAD). Refurbished and discontinued I would think it should be cheaper. Z30 is a great phone, but different sim size than PP, yes you can use an adapter, I went that route and the adapter damaged my sim reader in my phone, and I am very careful with my devices.

    I recently saw a place in Texas that still had some new BlackBerry Z30 for the same price. I don't recall who was selling them.

    Thanks for the advice, guys but the $199 is in Canadian $s, using today's wholesale rate it translates into $150 USD. Compared to the Leap which they're selling for $279 here this looks like a bargain to me, I'm just trying to establish if these refurbished units are reliable or not.

    TBH, there are far cheaper devices out there but I love BB's VKB and BBM and I don't want to be spending DTEK money for a second device.

    As to the SIM, what ever it is I end up buying will be used for international travel and so SIM size is not an issue for me.

    Sounds like a lot of work for very little return, if any.

    Going to go for it. Always liked the Z30, to me it's a good price with some assurance of quality, let's just hope it's reliable!

    Approx $75 USD or less and $8 for the mid frame.

    I've a Verizon Z30 that I will be selling in the near future. $70'ish dollars including a new mid frame. I even have a box (pre-production device/ non original box) for it.

    Honestly if*they are providing 1 year of warranty on a device of that age, I wouldn't*worry about it. Seems like a decent price.

    Is it from Staples? I have bought from them before, refurbished was basically new. Very happy with it. If I didn't already have a Z30, I would buy it for that price from them

    I think that's a great price for a great device.
