    Hi there, me again.

    So I just nabbed a T-Mobile display model Q10 (with... AT&T markings, apparently, so if it doesn't work on Wind's AWS band I might have... an AT&T Q10 what needs selling), and it's listed as having a few apps that don't work, because it was a display model: notably they mention the text message app.

    So I'm wondering if this is a thing with display models? Do they come pre-loaded with a special display version of the OS, or maybe it's a dev release?

    I'm taking a risk on this phone and I'm hoping it's not a dud. At $107 with $30 in shipping, though, I can deal with a lemon, I guess. Just won't be too happy about it.

    Oh, the phone hasn't arrived yet, so I have no idea how bad it actually is. My first step was going to be flashing a new OS anyways.

    I was just curious as to whether or not this was a thing that's come up before, so I know what to expect, or if the text app not opening is a symptom of a known problem.

    I'm feeling very positive about this one.

    Balls, it's an SQN100-1, not an SQN100-5.

    Unlocked, though, and cosmetically not terrible, so I guess I might be able to sell it once I get rid of the AT&T logo.

    So the good news is that re-flashing the OS gives me a fully functional phone, minus the network problem. It's in better shape than I'd expected too. Very nice screen.

    If the people I bought it from can't do anything I'll maybe see if I can trade with someone.

    Hope it works out for you!

    Anyways, we've confirmed that it's an SQN100-1 and I'm returning it for a full refund.

    Shame, because it was actually in great condition otherwise.
