    Default Re: Should I return my 5?

    This is interesting to me. Is it BestBuy's policy to charge tax on the full retail value in every state? I live in Massachusetts and the law in this state is to charge the 6.25% sales tax on the full retail price always, it has been a law for quite a while but only really been enforced for the past couple of years. I also believe there are a few other states that require taxing at full price. I have heard that Radio Shack in Mass stores will sometimes "forget" to tax at the full retail price but that is them circumventing the law.

    I also live 10 miles from New Hampshire which does not charge sales tax on anything so guess where I go to buy all my phones (and anything else for that matter)?

    Here in NV, AT&T and BB always charge tax on retail. Apple only charges tax on upgrade pricing so I only buy from Apple now when the newest iPhone releases. When you buy 2, it's saves me around $80 combined for both.

    Here in MN I was only ever charged tax on the price I paid in store at carrier stores and Best Buy.

    Just keep the phone. I need to go through the BS for just 50 bucks.

    Default Should I return my 5?

    I too am on my second iPhone 5. The original unit would vibrate when pressure was put on the glass screen.

    I asked the "genius" about the refurb that I was getting. She explained that the only item that might be refurbed is the logic board. The battery, screen, case are all new.
