    anyone have any recommendations as the best/ safest place to buy a used phone? I'm preferably looking for a Galaxy S3 on sprint (no contract, not prepaid). I"ve read mixed reviews about gazelle, swappa, glyde- just trying to see what advice you guys may have. thank you!

    Try the Marketplace here first. I've found some good deals on the forums.

    thanks guys- i'll look again on swappa and of course here on the marketplace. i just got burned via ebay and don't want to make the same mistake twice! I like that swappa certifies the sellers but their webutation score is low - 40% but most complaints seem to be from sellers.

    eBay is pretty safe, though it may take a little bit of time. Money back guarantee when you receive a phone that isn't as the listing described.

    The eBay ratings are artificial now. There's almost NO way to give a negative rating anymore so most sellers will have almost 100% rating. You have to have a VERY strong case and have exhausted EVERY resolution avenue before you can give a negative rating, and even then I think they make it difficult to actually provide the negative.
