Thats a good point.. i saw a mod close (i think) a thread because someone was selling one at £180
#3
If Apple are selling them at £269 still.. and it's an Apple product, Does that mean they can be sold at £269?

You can sell it for £1000 if you want. Apple cant say nothing, its yours you own it. The only thing you dont own is the software on the iPhone as you have a licence to use it.

EDIT: Its like Wii Fit are going £100+ RRP is £69.99.....there not doing nothing illegal!

I'm on about on the forums...

Theres a rule saying things can only be sold at RRP.
#5
^^ oh seriously ? I highly doubt that!
#6
The RRP is £269.. its just that o2 and CPW lowered it themselves to get rid of them before the new one.

[SIZE=3]LISTING A TRADE, SALE OR REQUEST [/SIZE]

(10) You must not list items for sale at higher than the recommended retail price. The marker of RRP will be determined by cross indexing with Amazon, for example.

edit:
lol yeah found it !!

And seeing as Amazon don't sell them..
#10
Morally, i don't think they should be sold for more than £180. If you bought one for £169, its not fair to sell it for £269 - especially when this is meant to be a 'deals' site. It goes against all the princeables of this forum.

RRP is 269*:thumbsup:
#18
So there's 3 stores that actually sell them. One at £269, 2 at £169. £169 therefore becomes the reference price as there's 66% share.

RRP is a load of ******** anyway.

I doubt it as they'll be discontinued from what i've read:thinking:

Well, apart from appleshop.

How about the n95, whats the RRP on that compared to the actual street price?
#23
O2 never expected them to sell like hot cakes that's why they said go back up in June.

Isn't there also a new version of the iphone coming out soon anyway. I jeard this pricedrop is to clear the shelfs for the new stock.
#25
^^ yeah 3G version expected June 08
#26
Well my assessment...

It's ok to list the iphone at £269 as that IS the RRP, but anybody doing so should expect and ACCEPT without getting the ar*ehole when other users on here point out that it's available for a lot less. Lets be honest, nobody in their right mind would pay RRP anyway.

The RRP is £269 but you already knew this. As long as people don't ask for more than Apple are charging I don't see a problem.

However the FS Forum isn't for traders to sell brand new phones solely to make a profit.

:thumbsup:
#34
Moved to feedback. It's likely that this didn't get a mod response as it was in misc.
banned#35
i think there was some confusion by some of the mods, and some threads where closed due to being above £169, although the rrp is still £269
#36
The thing is, should we allow something to be sold at a higher price than it's available regularly. I'm not suggesting that we ban all sales of an LG Shine at £55 because someone had them for £45 once, but if it's available elsewhere at a lower price and it's not a flash-in-the-pan deal, should we not allow it to be sold above that price.

After all, it can be bought new elsewhere?

Discuss. :)

but t the mo it cant, most cow dont have them and nor do o2, and also the unlocked ones cant be purchased retail full stop. I think most people prefer to buy off here as i think alot of people believe there is going to be some comeback over the contract thing, so are happy to pay a few quid over the £169 with no worries of any comeback

No worries. :) I was just wondering - I think they were probably being removed back when they were generally still in stock.

Roll on Xperia. :-D

Perhaps they should be allowed, but so should posts making clear that they are available/have been recently cheaper without it being considered thread spoiling, provided a reference to a relevant HUKD deal can be provided. I personally think the iphone 8GB 'rrp' [a very vague term] has been effectively £169 for the past few weeks, and for someone to say so in a FS thread should not be considered threadspoiling. Unlocking the iphone is probably easier than virtually any other modern phone with vast resources on the internet in general and from other users here so should be considered 'added value', particularly when the receiver might not be aware of the implications (voided warranty/potential future bricking/problems with updating etc etc).

If the FS rules were changed to allow linking (explicitly) to a recent, perhaps expired deal at a lower price, it will hopefully discourage people from trading for profit on the FS forums which is 100% not their purpose.

This always has been allowed, my friend. As long as evidence is given to back up the claims and no other sarcastic remarks, etc, are made and it's a reputable retailer (no "these are £20 cheaper on eBay" comments).

Here's the section in the rules:

(14) Please only post in a thread if you are interested in engaging in the sale/trade listed. Anything else will be considered thread spoiling and will be deleted. Thread spoilers face a ban from the FS/FT forum. If a member continually posts questions in multiple threads and then withdraws from the sale this will be considered thread spoiling. Low ball offers will also be considered thread spoiling and will be deleted. It is up to the original poster to use the “report” button to notify moderators of any thread spoiling.

(15) The only exception to this is if you see the EXACT item priced higher than available new elsewhere. In this case a third-party can make a post but ONLY in the following format: LINK TO MERCHANT - PRICE. No comments, just the facts. This must be the final price (after VAT/shipping) for a new product and from a reputable merchant. Price comparison to auction sites, classifieds or other personal sales are not allowed. Members who do not follow these posting rules face a ban from the FS/FT forum.
