    Well, hello there people.
    I am really interested in buying a new Windows phone cellphone. I am mostly a fan of Nokia cellphones, and I already own a Nokia 1520 (I got it used by just 45$). The problem is that my 1520 has a cracked digitizer (still works well even though), and some other cosmetic issues, and I was planning to buy a new Cellphone. I am mostly interested in getting a Nokia Lumia 1020 (64 gb version if possible) or a Nokia Lumia 930. Hence, if I can find a brand new 1520, I wouldnt mind buying a new one, but I am mostly worried of bending it due to its large size

    So, can anyone point me to an Amazon seller or an Ebay one?
    And please, International versions, because I do not live on the US.

    Thanks in advance :)

    Your best shot is to just look for a New-in-box (NIB) or mint device.

    I don't think there's just one definitive source, especially since the newest of those device is from 2014.

    OP here
    Thanks for your answers.
    Well, I have found a lot of sources on Amazon and Ebay, but, I am still somewhat worried of getting an used phone, and those that look like new are being sold extremely expensive (sometimes asking up to 400$), so I was wondering if there was some place where they were like more fair priced. Ebay has gave me the better results, but most of those results are from UK or Germany, so I dont know if they would work here in my Country. Plus, most of them do not ship to America :/

    I am seeing some good ones around $300 new on eBay.

    lumia 950 xl | eBay

    Edit: BTW, the 950 XL is a true Global GSM Device. Meaning it supports majority of LTE/HSPA GSM bands

    It might be helpful to know what country you do live in...

    You can usually find mint used (i.e. very well looked after) or never-used devices on eBay, my 1020 that I got last year was one that someone had received as a warranty replacement and then not used, just keep looking if there aren't any listed currently. Any Lumia will work in the vast majority of countries so you should be ok but double-check before purchasing if unsure.

    You can flash the firmware for your country by downloading it from lumiafirmware.com if you get a phone from a different country and are keen to do so, but this only affects things like the default language after a hard reset (you can always choose any language on any firmware) and a few preinstalled apps etc, so isn't strictly necessary. Note that this is also a good way to get rid of any carrier branding/customisation if you flash a Country Variant (CV) firmware over a stock carrier one (this does not remove SIM locks though).

    I just bought a brand new 1520 from ebay. The seller had quite a few for sale. I would look there or on amazon.

    Where I can get brand new Nokia Lumia 1020. No warranty needed. But no second hand.
