Wanting to buy a used, refurbished or brand new N900. I am in Australia. Needs to be the English QWERTY keyboard and MUST be working 100%.
Please do not direct me to eBay or China websites. They are ripping us Maemo lovers to death.

I too have been burned by the Chinese 'new' N900s but after getting one fake new from ebay and one from a former very active TMO member who famously took money and ran I have learned how to find a good N900.
I typically look for a N900 which is obviously not new but in good condition, you really have to look for one with at least a little pocket wear and the right accessories to prove you are getting OEM and not one with a replaced plastic case, if you search TMO you can find the fake vs real box pictures to help too on really complete phones. I look for sellers in wealthier western countries and tick only the used box on auction site searches.
I suppose it is not foolproof but it has worked for me at least four times.

Hi elcaito,

I'm in Australia and my n900 is still in excellent condition. Private message me if you want to discuss it further.

Hi, you've got PM switched off by the look of it. It says I can't PM you.
