5302 what is a fair price? 100 USD???
« on: November 15, 2017, 09:24:21 AM »
I found this.
https://articulo.mercadolibre.com.mx/MLM-602012509-telefono-antiguo-bell-_JM


This is in Mexico and the price 1800 Pesos which is less than 100 USD at time of this writing

I was curious what is a fair price for this model. It looks like a deal to me but I have no barn fresh 5302s available to me.

Black 5302s are common in the USA and, unless they are in remarkable condition, should not cost more than around $20 plus shipping.  Any other colors are rare and worth considerably more.

Mark;

What would shipping and import duties cost to send one from the U.S.

I think Mark is able to buy online and have shipped to a US address for transport in luggage to Mexico at a later date. If the savings is enough to warrant it that is and it sounds as though it may be this time.

AT the moment I have eight phones stuck in texas and sometimes having people bring stuff gets complicated.

If I use ebay international shipping I doubt a phone for 20 dollars would cost me less than $80 for international shipping.

An additional suitcase for $25(?) sounds like the way to clear some of the backlog next time someone visits.

I sold a black 5302 several years ago for $8 plus shipping at an eBay auction and it took a month for it to sell!  I've also heard that $25 plus shipping is a fair price, yet I didn't get that for mine.
