no axe to grind over this ...I got a fast reply ...didn't want to spoil the guy's biz on ebay ...but some might take the plunge and wind up with a no good piece ...if the guy were right he would pull down the sale and put it up correctly ...there sure would be a market for the VEER screen too ...it's all chineeez2me !!

I went looking to stock a spare for my Pre 3 since I carry it around ...and I will keep it forever even if I shut off the fone eventually and use it as a wifi micro-tablet around the house ...my fondest hope would be to put an app on it for my security webcams (I posted elsewhere for this) and be able to do this without needing an android fone (yecch!) ...oh, well ...now I use cm9 on touchad to do this ...all that for this one thing...

found the thread, linked to this thread since they are different sellers... looks like both are selling Veer screens as Pre3 screen though (different images too)

Could be an intentional scam, I wonder if they will be as open and honest once one has purchased and the screen has been shipped to the US...

They responded quickly to my ebay message from the one I was viewing and told me not to get it because it was an error and really for the VEER ...is it possible they don't know how to take it down or fix the listing? if they were to contact ebay, they would get help with that... anyway, better to be informed than to waste $$$...

they are power seller level and in the first few pages I didn't see anyone who put up negative feedback about this item...
