  1. You need to find out if the reseller is an Official Reseller of the product. Otherwise the manufacturer may not honor the warranty. There are shops in NY that get you with lower prices, but when you try to fix something, no go.
  2. hmmm, so how do we find that out?
  3. Web search maybe for the vendor, check the seller's ebay profile, send them an email and ask. All the sellers I have seen on ebay offer a "contact us" option on their listings where you can ask questions. Then you either have to trust them if they say the warranty is fully covered or do a bit of research with other sites. BBB may have listings on the seller also, and they provide info for free.
  4. thanks.. but what is BBB?

    Generally, when you call, they just ask for the serial #, they can see in their system when/where it was sold and if it's in warranty. They may also ask what's wrong and how it may have happened to rule out things like a broken screen if you dropped it.
  8. hmm, there should be a 'report spammer' button :/..

    I'd rather have a "burn spammer alive and feed to wild pigs" button.
  10. any ways so basically if u ask the seller for the serial number cant u like give it to the manufacturer to see if it will have warranty?
