damn, I called my local tmo (official store not like one of those "authorized look-a-likes") and they told me no stores carry refurbs!
guess I'll head out too maybe I'll get lucky! I really want this phone but not from some ebay seller, I want a full 1 year warranty from nokia
That's weird, but about 2 months ago I scored 2 ATT StraightTalk micro simcards at my local walmart by stopping by and asking. The person in the wireless section said they didn't carry the sim cards in store, another sales rep overheard, and said "hold on, let me check in the back". He came back with 2 microsims in the package with a big $9.97 or whatever it was magic markered across the front of them. He said they had them there from a no show pick up for a couple weeks and they couldn't ship them back since Straight Talk was no longer dealing with ATT. So I've just got into the routine of asking about certain items even if it says it's not in stock or they no longer carry it. Just like the refurb Nokia 810's I bought, they sign said "temporarily out of stock". I asked her if she could check if they would get any back in, she checked the computer, and said "well, it looks like we have 2, but they are refurbs" I asked her if I could see them, saw the condition and bought them both money up front, instead of getting the iPhone 5(which was the only newer high end smart they had in stock) and trying out their pay plan.
This was at an actual T-mobile stand alone store, and not at a kiosk. I checked out 2 of the kiosks at the malls around me and had bascially no phones except for the real low end and the new Blackberry in stock. So I drove 35 minutes to the closest retail store, and was basically the same thing, except I lucked out and got the 810's.
