perhaps this was mentioned upthread, but according to the ABC article, the sellers did it for $5. Is that correct? That does not seem worth the time ordering the phone, let alone all this trouble with Google.

Thoughts?

$650 x 6 in CC points and meeting minimum spend is worth more.

According to their statement it sounded like those accounts won't be reinstated.
I guess it was to big of a hassle to go thru them.

So glad for those that got access back. I can't imagine how terrible it must have been to be locked out of your accounts.
