Hey guys. I was planning on picking up a r800a. This may sound like a silly question but what is considered a good price for these? I've been checking out different sellers online and I've seen prices as high as $600. I know that a few of you have picked up from private sellers. Would you mind telling me the price you paid? If you don't want to post in this thread you can PM me. Thanks a lot!

I personally picked a new one up around two months ago for around $500, but I believe the phone is worth about $400-$450 now (in mint condition with all accessories + some extras). $600 is a little steep for this device at this stage in the game.

Thanks for the info. Is there any difference between the r800a from Canada (rogers) vs the r800a from the Google IO conference?

Don't buy from private seller of its going to cost that much... Warranty is way better when you buy from big companies. Any problems, they let you change and refund without hassle.

I thought I read somewhere that it can be unlocked to work with ATT? Well, it doesn't matter, I just picked up the dev model from someone that attended the Google I/O conference. I turned it on but haven't really used it yet. I'm waiting for my phantom skinz protector to arrive.

Sorry i mean the bootloader is factory locked. Still a good phone but only half as good as unlockable plays. Rogers phone = no custom roms, no overclocking, no custom kernals.

Wow. I guess I lucked out then. I almost bought the Rogers version. Hmm... I could have sworn that the bootloader was unlockable though. I don't plan on rooting any time soon so I guess it wouldn't have mattered anyway.

I bought my Play through EBay for about $320 myself - of course wasn't new but came with everything plus a case. I almost had one that went $375 came with the docking station.

Rogers based - paid $15 to get it unlocked for other networks (not unlocked bootloader) and rooted. Currently running the UK Rom.
