Refurbished Samsung Galaxy S5 (unlocked, former AT&T) for $250 [no contract]

This has not turned into a Galaxy blog, it’s just that there are many specials today. The latest one is the manufacturer refurbished Samsung Galaxy S5, model SM-G900A, a former AT&T model, but sold unlocked, for $250 with free shipping, in either black or white (the gold and blue sold out) by eBay seller “QualityCellz” (99.2%). This works with any compatible GSM carrier, not just AT&T. The seller offers 14-day returns plus the Samsung warranty on the refurb. This is NO CONTRACT! You own it. Tempting indeed…

… especially when you consider that the Galaxy S6 took away the microSD slot and the removable battery, assuming of course you value those features a lot. As of the time of writing, over 600 units were sold from this particular eBay offering. If I had a $250 eBay Gift Card, I would be next 🙂
