    Just found that Aliexpress.com have quite a lot of Blackberry phones for sale aparently brand new and wondering if these are real new or refurbished.

    Has someone bought here, and if so, have you had any issues?
    Are these sellers to be trusted and what about the terminal, works all well, battery, connection, etc?

    Thanks!

    When you buy online, try to research a bit on positive feedback (maybe above 98%) seller rating (4.8 out of 5), details on the description, and tracking number for shipping, etc. Then try to contact the seller and hope for quick responses.

    Remember that BlackBerry devices are no longer in production. So receiving BNIB or BNOB, is a rare experience. Just my two cents. Cheers.

    I’d be more suspect on the BlackBerry devices listed on Aliexpress compared with Amazon or eBay and part of that is location of the intended audience of the respective site. Also some of the BlackBerry devices may be altered or counterfeit which can be on any site, but I believe happens more frequently on Aliexpress site.

    I looked at a few listings, most clearly say refurbished.

    I do remember someone had complained before when they ordered one... that it didn't come in the original box with the original accessories. I'd carefully look at the listings details and the reviews of the product. If you have a question, ask the seller.

    I see, price is not that crazy though. May have a try if can't find something interesting or better nearby.
    Thanks!

    I ordered my gold q10 from aliexpress, and have zero regrets. took a month to arrive from China to Toronto. I believe they are assembled with spare gold edition + white q10 parts. Therefore refurbished and not used. certainly not brand new, as they've been out of production for years.

    My wife and daughters buy on Aliexpress on regular basis but I always remind them to limit purchases to the low price segment. No major issues so far, except occasional delays in delivery (but that happens with everyone) and there were small mistakes a couple of times as the wrong color. As for me, I avoid Aliexpress because I do not see a buyer's protection policy there similar to eBay. But I could miss something.
