    I am searching for a decent price on a Lumia 1520.3 and after finding Newegg out of stock and Amazon listings for a new one at $700+, I have found this listing on a site I've never heard of:

    http://tronicltd.tictail.com/product/nokia-lumia-15203-black-3g-4g-lte-quad-core-22ghz-unlocked-cell-phone-us-lte-bands

    just curious if anybody on the forums has bought or had experiences, positive or negative with this vendor. I'm very skeptical that it is a legitimate site and not some sort of scam.

    Any input is much appreciated!

    When it's too good to be true, then there's a good chance it's a scam. Over seen these prices for the international model not 1520.3

    hmmmmm - if it seems too good to be true ...

    Have NO experience with this outfit, though I heard of them, once before. That price seems way low.
    You'll probably find it's a Chinese knockoff.

    I didn't see where it specified new or used. I've seen some "used in mint condition" listings on eBay for around $275 so it may not be new.

    $250 Lumia 1520.....
    That is about what I paid for a refurb L1520.

    I got my 1520 via cell2get.
    I ordered the unlocked 32gb but apparently they didn't have it/couldn't get it so they took off $45 after I received it.
    Mine is 1520.2 16gb. I got a 64gb sd for it off amazon.

    bhphotovideo seems to have good reviews. They have new ($519) and used ($399).

    I don't know about the vendor you mentioned.
    Some people on here have had good luck getting one off ebay for a decent price.

    I found this page (Tronic Ltd. - USA Wholesaler | HKTDC) that shows an address in Minnesota. Googling that address returns this link (Contact Det-Tronics) which is for a completely different company. If it were me, I'd stay away from Tronic. Seems fishy.

    Guess I was lucky when I got the green one for only 250 bucks new! But then it was on a bid.

    This has come up here before... I looked into it a few months back and it seems like a siphon to get your money overseas.

    I would not trust it.

    Seems the setup looks the same but now is using GoDaddy as a host and TickTail as a checkout.
    IP Address Lookup (IPv4 & IPv6) - 184.168.221.96

    Look at their About:

    They have a signed agreement with the United States Government to bring you the lowest possible price? Really? How does that even work?

    Sounds like a Scam justification to me...

    I recently bought a used AT&T 1520 on ebay for $209.00. It was listed as used and in good condition.

    When it came, I saw that it looks like new and runs perfectly. I got a new nano sim at the AT&T Store and have been very happy with it.
