Best deal I have seen in the US for the Gear. I got mine for $99 in Canada, but I also have to pay GSTs and shipping to the US.

@nviz22, keep in mind the one you got is brand new, while this one is refurbished. Though since its BB Geek Squad, these refurb'd units are most likely just customer returns.

All should know too that many times "refurbished" only means it was returned to the store without anything wrong with it. They cannot then sell it as "new", so they have to call the item refurbished. In the case of the Gear, where we heard it had a high return rate late last year, I would take advantage of an offer like this if you see it come up again.

Yeah, that's fine, but I am just saying that's been the best deal for the Gear in the US so far from what I have seen. It's a good value purchase at $130 anyways. For $300, the original price, not worth it. I chose the Gear 1 for the functionality and price. The Gear 2 only has a heart rate sensor and IR Blaster, which cannot vouch for a $200 price difference.

Pricing update FYI
Just thought I would post for those that are interested.

Amazon has the original Gear for 120.33 they are listed as used but they are being shown as Amazon Warehouse inventory which very often are customer returns. Free two day shipping if you are a prime member as well. Also eligible for standard return and refund policies from Amazon. Also this is for Jet Black.

With the custom rom, does it work with all phones now or still stuck with Sammy?
