    Where is the risk in purchasing a phone online?

    I see people who are outright paranoid about online purchases, and especially when talking about phones. I think there is every reason to be extra watchful about this matter. Nevertheless, there should be good sites to buy from.

    I would never buy any used electronic off the internet. I don't know, I'm just a bit freaky with those things. I like warranties and I like buying things from companies.

    Are we talking about used phones or new ones? I wouldn't mind purchasing a slightly-used cell phone from eBay as long as the seller had good reviews and was a trustworthy person. Sure, warranties are good, but saving some money (while getting the same device) is a better choice for some people...

    I have purchased used phones on Ebay but I would be very cautious. You have to check that the number (EID number I think it's called) is not blocked by the provider or associated with a large bill. I think you can check with the provider ahead of time to make sure the number is clear.
