    I'm thinking is even a knock off that cheap? I've been out the alibaba world a really long time.

    I'm wondering am I missing fine print? $40 ? ? the camera can't even be that cheap

    Their only feedback within the past year is as a buyer, all of their seller feedback is older. Could be a hacked/bought account and they're pulling a hit and run, although I'm not sure why they wouldn't start at a higher price. Maybe at $40 people buying it are treating it like a lotto ticket and are less likely to follow up when the phone never arrives, as opposed to if they had sold them for a few hundred each.

    I think people are more likely to be suspicious at that price.

    There's been a few of these popping up all over.

    Here's the Galaxy listing for Refurbeds. I bought one iPhone. Brohter bought an iPhone and Galaxy. Worse thing, i have to pull my funding through my CC/Paypal/or Ebay.

    Otherwise, I get a pretty nifty piece for $40

    Galaxy is here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/252683410293
    Only $29

    Won't hurt me either way. Hopefully it's not a one those new trendy phone bombs.

    Read through some comments.

    A negative comment read something like:
    "The phone I got is fake. I found out when I went to an Apple Store. How embarrassing"

    Hopefully it can actually be cut on.

    Why go through all of this though? What are you expecting to gain?

    I know some foreign people that need phones. An easy gift.
