Cingular 3125, New or refurbishd?

by bmel / August 31, 2007 9:58 AM PDT

I've had the Cingular V550 for 2 years now and it served me well for what I needed.
Well I think it's ready to be replaced now.
I was looking at the Cingular 3125 and it seems to have all I'm looking for.
Mostly I'll be just using it for texting and IM and your normal day-to-day talking.
On the AT&T website I see they have a refurbishd one for 39.99$.
What I'm wondering is will a refurbishd phone last me 1-2 mores years or die on me in a month?
I've never gotten a refurb before so I really don't know about how long they last.
Can anyone give me some advice on this phone or your past encounters with refurbishd phones?

reman vs new

The remans come with a one year warranty when purchased thru proper channels, like the e store. In my experience, they last as long as a new phone would...all are subject to the same software issues from the manufacturer.

May have given some incorrect info. Seems the remans DO only have a 90 day warranty of late. When my son purchased his about 9 mos ago, he got a one year warranty. Sorry about that.
