I said ~$400 to ~$500 meaning approximately between $400 to around $500 (~ means approximate so $520 or $510 still counts as per my previous statement). The phone is on and off for around $500 on ebay through bidding & buy it now. Currently the lowest is $560 for buy it now.
You have 45 days guarantee to file a claim on ebay after purchase!
Also using this deals also gets you the credit inquiry.
This deals doesn't get you the phone for $420 - $450.
Breakdown for two years:
$41.99+$69.99*24 = $1721.25 + taxes for 24 months + Credit Inquiry
Buying it your self for $500 with Straight Talk
$560 + $40*24 = ~$1520 (now the lowest refill for ST is around $36. Search!)
Not someone else comparing used phones on ebay to new ones...
After looking at the last 50 or so auctions that have won, the only ones under $600 are either Sprint or are busted in some way, neither of which compare to a new GSM phone.
And it looks like you're comparing ST "unlimited" plan (which people have reported will throttle after 2-ish GB of high speed data) with TMO truly unlimited plan with no throttling. Sure it's a $200 plus taxes difference over 2 years, but you don't have unlimited HIGH SPEED data.
TL;DR: If you're getting a $500 Note 2, you're going to have a bad time.
