    Longtime lurker and first time poster!
    Ordered a Refurb for a Penny this morning and am excited to get it. Going from a Pearl it should be a big difference.
    Are there any known issues I should look out for on these refurbs?
    Looking forward to your help.

    Usually refurbs are equal or better than new devices becuase of individual test they must pass before being resold.

    I picked up a penny Torch too!! I tried one before and didn't like it but for a penny, totally worth it! Beats the $199 I paid before.

    I picked up a red one just a week ago for a penny, from Amazon. Awesome phone.

    $149 for the new Pearl was way too much. A Penny is way better for a better Berry I hear.

    Newbie to this,
    Is this with the 2 year contract? Correct?

    Sounds like a great deal. I am not happy that I cannot take advantage of it since I cannot upgrade until January.

    I just picked up my Torch as well for a penny from Amazon Wireless. (They had a one day sale for upgrades on a family plan, which was normally $149 and now at $48.88). Best penny I've ever spent.

    I tried doing the Amazon way since they had the White One but couldnt get the price below the $48.88.
    What was the trick?

    No trick. Amazon just had the price to a penny for a day; afterwards, they raised it back up.

    The only way you can get it cheaper is a new account (individual), but upgrades are more expensive, and upgrading a line on a family plan is more expensive than upgrading an individual line.

    That's why then.
    I got the Refurb and it should be here tomorrow!

    Well, if your due for an upgrade on AT&T, go to wirefly. You can Get a free red/black or white torch. No upgrade charge & no cost. Even get a free bluetooth ear wig using a promocode found on the net.

    ps good for new account or 2 year upgrade

    Does anyone know if the Refurbs from AT&T come with a Data Cord?
