Anyone ever purchase a phone through A4C.com?


Nov 30, 2009
They have the LG G3 for $399.95 and claim it is brand new, but in bulk packaging. The bulk packaging part concerns me. I would love to jump on this deal, but am thinking I should stay away. Does anyone have any experience with buying anything in bulk packaging from them? I'm concerned it is a refurb or something along those lines even though they claim it is brand new.
While I've never bought a phone from A4C,formerly known as ALL4CELLULAR,I've ordered plenty of items from them over the past 3 yrs w/o any issues whatsoever.

It's advertised as new,so,I see no reason why the warranty wouldn't be covered by LG.

Also,if you use PAYPAL to checkout,you're protected against fraudulent/misrepresented purchases.

I'd say contact A4C w/any questions regarding warranties/returns/exchanges/refunds & make your decision.

If possible,ask for the ESN/IMEI on the device that they're gonna ship & run a check via VZW to ensure that you're getting a brand-new device.

I will try calling them on Monday because apparently they aren't open on weekends.

I did email them several times through their website and also their eBay auction and the only response I get is that they are "new and in bulk packaging".

I asked if it has a clean ESN, if they come with the original charger and they had ever been activated and they would not answer those via email.

Yep,closed on the weekends:

A4C.com: Customer Login

If after contacting them Monday & they're still seemingly evasive/side-stepping your concerns,then perhaps a pass on this would be in order.

This isn't the same A4C I grew accustomed to dealing with.
I had an RMA that was taken care of w/o any fuss at all (B/T Headset,I believe,it's been a while).

However,anything & everything is subject to change.
As for ratings for this business,a GOOGLE Search will net results that run the gamut.

Please keep us posted on events as they unfold.

Didn't notice this on the home PC (at work ATM),BUT,A4C's ad is splattered atop this page when browsing this thread,advertising this very phone.

Bait & switch,to buy other wares on their site. :mad:

Marking this seller off the recommend list..............

pretty much so.

G3 will be $399 at some point in the future, except we don't know when :)

YESSIREEEEEEE! 'Tis a bit early for such Christmas presents........ :D

It was worth a look-see anyway,sometimes (not often) a good deal comes along,much like the LG OG PRO that I picked up direct from AMAZON for $60 (very good condition).

They don't come along often,but,man,when they do,it's a rush..... ;)
