I heard two other similar stories. One I just read last week and it was on a Kyocera phone (I can't seem to find the link to the article at this time), and another was also a Nokia phone and the cause of that was also a cheap imitation battery.
I've owned about 4 or 5 different cellphones in the past...oh, 3 or 4 years almost. All of them have been Nokias. It's a reliable brand. I doubt you have too much to worry about.
I've bought them second hand a few times (not from StubHub...from Craigslist) with no problems. Oddly enough, I've had bigger problems with Ticketmaster. They double-sold our exact seats to a show in Santa Barbara a couple of years ago.
