I did yesterday for the order I placed last week.

Edit to add: Out for delivery today. I was given option of Purolator or Canada Post by Zoomer and picked Canada Post

I think if you use words like 'never been used'. 'proof of purchase' in your ad, then the buyer does not mind spending a few dollars extra.
I even gave the buyer my phone number just to prove that there is nothing shady about this deal.

Before COVID, I let people come to my house to test it before paying.
Have too many phones... This is how I limit my monthly phone payment.

Apparently the LG Velvet 5G phone was on par or better than A71, still not much interest with couple lower offers like 325. oh well, worse case I will keep it as back up phone.

No info. They don't update your account with the order till when they ship it. The sales associate told me it's 2 weeks till they get stock, so imagine you gotta wait till Dec 12th before I'd worry. I haven't gotten any info either.

Hey, am not sure if this is the right place to be posting this but I have been getting calls from this number - 647-493-5944 and 647-493-5955
They claim to be calling from Best buy mobiles and the truecaller phone app also shows them as BestBuyMobile.
They offer really good phone deals, too good to be true types and that's what made me suspicious.
I asked them to send me the deal they were offering on my email and they did that without any hesitation, this is the email Id - Best Buy Mobiles <promotions@bestbuymobiles.store> and I for a second thought may be they are genuine.
But since the offer was just too good to be true, I further did a google search on them and found another thread where people who have been victims have posted about them, my suspicion was right.
They even have a website - www.Bestbuymobiles.store which when you check will clearly show that they are not related to Best Buy in any way.

Also, these scammers are smart, they use this address - 110 Place d'Orléans Dr, Orléans, ON K1C 2L9 - which is of a shopping mall and they do not mention any unit number.
I did a google search and there is actually a real Best Buy Mobile store at the above location, but it has a different phone number.

I am not sure how they got my number, but they were aware that I am with Zoomer and they offered me a really good deal with Rogers. When I told them about the 2 year contract, they said I do not have to pay any cancellation charges for breaking the contract as Zoomer is owned by Rogers. Below is the text from the email I got from them -

"If you have less than One year contract remaining or if you have less than One thousand amount in your previous Contract than you don’t need to pay for your previous contract anymore.
Once your order will be confirmed you will get a confirmation email from our side and a verification call from the Dispatch Department and we will provide you the tracking number for your order so you can track it by yourself. Your parcel will be delivered at the address you will be providing and it must be the same address which is registered with your bank as well. You will receive your parcel within 3 to 5 Working days after placing your order.
If you have any question please feel free to reach us:
1-647-493-5955
www.Bestbuymobiles.store"

Please be careful guys and don't fall for this scam and inform others as well.
Has any one else received a call from them?

Which phone would you recommend - the Moto G Stylus or the Samsung A51?

Based on the reviews, they are pretty even, the A51 may have slight edge on specs, but the Moto is 128GB, the A51 is 64GB.
I should add the review for the A51 appear to refer to the 128GB version, so the 64GB may be the Canada special.

Which phone would you get to sell quickly? And which one if you had to keep and use it?

Next stop 250! They're trying to corner the market. I lobbied a couple of people to switch but they weren't Zoomer material.

I wish I'd waited to port my parents over now. Oof.
