I am selling a White Lumia 900 in perfect condition. I looked the phone over as closely as possible and could not find a single scratch. It works great and comes with a charger. I am also selling a Samsung Focus that is in very good condition. It's always been in a case and only has the slightest scratches on the screen (they are so light I have a hard time even calling them scratches). The Focus comes with a charger, case and a 32GB SD card.
I am selling the 900 for $200 and the Focus for $90. (Both for $275)
The phones are located in Portland Maine. If you are local we can meet so you can inspect the phones. I will ship anywhere in the US for $5 otherwise.
I would prefer PayPal but personal/bank check is fine. (Just need to wait extra time for personal checks to clear)
I'm not listing these on ebay but my ebay name is Amazinghambone if you want to see my selling record.
I will take a few pictures later and add them.

Haha! Interesting to see someone on here from Portland, ME - that's where we moved from - Scarborough, specifically.
Good luck selling the phones. They are both great. I'd purchase one if I didn't already have a 900 on the way and two Samsung Focuses ;) Good luck selling though!

I agree. I calculated and after shipping , paypal and ebay fees and all the extras I was short 25% (I had to use signature confirmation plus insurance as it was > $400 purchase). Plus I have noticed ebays pricing calculator is inaccurate - especially since they charge fees on the actual shipping paid by the buyer and then paypal charges their fees on the shipping cost too ! Incredible. I think greed has taken over ebay.

I was well on my way to being a power seller on ebay and then they increased fees (twice), bought paypal and increased those fees. I was done after that. I wish some other auction site could take them out. I guess there is always craigs list but I think people only use that for renting girlfriends now.

lol. I have used craigslist too. Infact google / bing and craigslist have become my new friends. I search for the item i am looking for an have dealt with people as far away as CA (Am in the south east). Some people do have trust issues or think that this would be a nigerian scam but my ebays 500+ all positive feedback does come in handy plus I let them call me on my phone:P. I think when I was an avid watch collector on watchuseek, they did have a simialr online reputation service and that with paypal buyer protection is very helpful.

Just as a side note if you want to avoid ebay, check and see if your area has a Facebook Swap type of page. They are very popular here, every little town and even county has them. It makes it easy to connect with local people who are looking to buy or sell things. We haven't used Craigslist in ages. Here is an example of one that is cell phone oriented, but I have seen general swaps, kid-stuff, cars, etc.
