I just didn't think it would happen - that I'd actually get a Verizon Pre 3 on eBay! I totally expected my latest bid to get outbid which would have been fine because I planned to jump over to another auction with the "Buy It Now" price exactly the same as my highest current bid. My max amount was to have been $500.00 - got one for $445.00 plus s/h.
May have it in my hot little hands by this time next week! Whoo!
