    is that Sprint is trying to give you a phone someone else returned because it was busted? There seems to be quite enough stories of people trying to exchange phones and getting offered "refurbished" ones or ones that have been returned by others. Let's be real. There is no way in hell they have factory refurbished phones yet. also you're average joe isn't gonna be smart enough to figure that out and just thinks he keeps getting bad *brand new* or *refurbished* units. anyone else suspicious?

    1. We don't know if there is a "high" defect rate. With north of 100,000 sold, 1000 would be 1% is that "high."
    2. They could have refurbs from an extensive beta-testing period. The hardware could have been the same for MONTHS.
    3. Some returns/refurbs are simply because people didn't like the phone, had software issues with v1.01, etc.


    It's just too early to tell for sure.

    I only read one post from someone who CLAIMED he was offered a refurbished Pre. I don't believe they are offering refurbished Pre's yet.

    This would be a problem though.
