I am trying to fix or replace my Nokia 5310 cellphone. I know everyone loves the smart phones these days, but I have a blackberry for work, so I really dont need anything special for my personal phone. I love the 5310 because it is pretty much the smallest phone I have ever seen, and its pretty stylish looking. Battery life is great and its a works well as a music player.
I've had mine for several years now, and at present the backlight doesnt work, and the case is starting to fall apart. In addition, the speaker makes a faint buzzing sometimes which leads me to believe that it is on its way out too. I looked on ebay for a replacement, and in addition to a few used ones I spotted a couple vendors in China selling brand new ones.
My question to you guys is, are these cell phones from China knock-offs, or are they the real deal? I would definitely pay $83 for it if its a real nokia, but I am worried about ordering something from China and it turning out to be junk.
after reading some more articles and reviews around the internet regarding ebay cell phones from china, I elected to buy a used phone from a selling in america rather than roll the dice on what is probably a knock off phone that I would be getting from china.
