OT: I do a number of e-bay searches daily, like I'm sure 99% of us do. Upon my T210 search the past few days, one seller has listed 833 unlocked T210 phones. Which is great that he has a impressive inventory and must be top of the T210 phone game, even thought out of 268 completed auctions he only sold one with a bidding frenzy of 3 bids for $41. This just makes no sense to me. Why not just list a few of each phone in each color and put in description, say quanity 30, rather than hundreds of listings and fees. I know I can search just in cards, but I like to search all items, because some people list in wrong ebay sections. Just frustrating when first 3 pages are his phones. Any thoughts on his sales approach? Thx

if you add (-phone) to your search it will exclude that all T210 listing with Phone in it's name.

I know that your actual question was about why the seller might do what he does - no comment on that - but, you might eliminate some of your frustration my negating some keyword in your search to filter out his stuff - just include the string -UNLOCKED (note the leading hyphen or minus sign) along with the rest of your search arguments and it will not show any auctions that contain the word UNLOCKED in the title. hth...

Spastic seller? The only thing I can think of is that listing them on 3 pages gets more exposure so is seen more often. Maybe he will buy a banner on this board? :) Next banner you see flashing might be for different T210s :). Pink, blue, green......they could be all the rage!!
