Blackberry Bold 9700 - 4 months old - Will swap £230.00

6y, 2m agoPosted 6 years, 2 months agoFeedback:3 Positive/0 Neutral/0 Negative
I originally owned a iphone 3g 16gb, which i sold to purchase this blackberry brand new..

I found i prefer it over the iphone, due to using my iphone as a "toy" so to speak..

However.. now i found i prefer the iphone due to its ability to have a proper sat nav on it, the one built into the blackberry is useless i tell you now! (lol)

anyways... the phone:

black, has box with everything it originally came with, v. good condition, i am one for looking after my property, and ide say it was in mint condition, ide describe it as mint nick.

no scratchs on screen, or silver rim (only minor surface ones which cannot be prevented) - ide describe these are mint also, for condition out of 10 ide say 9.7 (-0.1 point for being used, -0.1 point for the surface marks that cannot be prevented, and another -0.1 point with no reason to it, just trying to be honest!)

always kept in the blackberry leather case that comes with it! (trying to keep it in the best condition)

anyhow, the blackberry pin has been used, although ill be honest, i have added 3 friends to it, and ive used it ONCE! (what a waste!) - ide say this blackberry messenger milarky is for the more talkative type of ppl hu enjoy a good gossip or randon chit chat (**** chat :p) just kidding.. but yeah, some people like to know if its been used, well i have 3 friends, which will be notified that i have sold the phone (and they aren't children who will prank you via bbm! lol) therefore its as good as a new pin!

swapping....

now for swapping, there are a few things im happy to swap with, taking into consideration the condition of course (clean freak!):

another blackberry (cheaper alternative) & cash my way
[reason: i do enjoy the blackberry for a PHONE.. but i honestly do need a sat nav, and the iphone was more convenient as i don't want a sat nav unit seperate, which is why i opted for the blackberry, which really disapointed me in this feild!]

a iphone 3gs (will consider all condition & 8gb/16gb/32gb etc)
[reason: must be 3gs, as ive owned a 3g and lead to beleive the 3gs is more responsive? that is all really?]

a iphone 3g (will consider all condition & 8gb/16gb etc) & cash my way

think you get the picture really.. depending on the condition and the gb the deal will vary.. ill be fair (or what i call to be fair)

also: none of this "half now and half when it comes" or "send it first".. ill happily show you my ebay feedback (nearly 200), or you can easily pick the item up yourself (from st. helens, merseyside)

price is what it is, what have you got? what are you offering?

lets get the ball rolling ! (hopefully lol)

please no idiots hijacking thread just to irratate, if your genuinely interested please feel free to post, ill be as truthful as possible!

i do not have a camara at hand, but if need be i could try to borrow a family members digicam for photos.. but i cannot really show you more than what you'll find on ebay or google.. its nearly new 9.7 out of 10 in my opinion..

ill certainly provide a full refund if the buyer isnt 100% happy with the item, however, refund will only be provided once the item has come back to me.

will be sent recorded delivery, signed for delivery.
not too sure how much this will cost, im assuming around £8-13 MAX (i will be sure to check for you guys!)

for the swapping, this is the most preferred and least preferred (before people start posting)

-- Most preferred--
Another (cheaper) blackberry & cash my way/iphone 3g 8gb (yes, 2 phones, lol)

Iphone 3gs (straight swap) - condidering condition and GB

Iphone 3g (swap and money my way) - condidering condition and GB

-- Least preferred --

thanks!
- myksterx

ADDED: To verify, a quick look on ebay shows around £7 for postage.. im assuming this would be recorded (signed for) delivery, however, if they aren't using this signed for service, it may go up slightly...

so hopefully guys your looking at £7 delivery

Have an Iphone 3g 8gb, unlocked if you are interested?
#2
yes mate, i am interested in any of the above i have listed on my post.

what would you say out of 10 (and im being picky lol) your condition is, and whats your thoughts on a deal mate?
banned#3
i have a mint condition 3g 8gb 9.5 out of ten how much were you hoping to get cash along with this
#4
hi mate im about to goto bed (for you and anyone else interested in the phone) so this is my last reply untill tomorrow!

£230 is what i want for my phone as cash, will come down slightly if someone offers cash method.
If someone wish's to swap for this phone, then my price of £230 stands, and im open to sensible offers.

The 3G is my least favourite mate, however, i am still interested (as stated above) - If i was going to opt for the 3G (which ive already owned) ide preferably want the 16GB.. but dont get me wrong i am still interested in yours..

Make me an offer mate with your phone, considering my asking price is £230, which i beleive is a v. good price considering the prices there asking on ebay (although, there are charges with ebay, so thats being taken into consideration too)
#5
I could offer a HTC Tattoo, a Sony Ericsson W995 and £30 for this?
#6
hi mate, what would you say the condition of each mobile phone is out of 10, also, do they come with box and accessories that came in the box.

very much interested for the htc tattoo.
although these would have to be pay and go handsets with all boxes etc

will not accept a contract phone that can be switched off and blocked at any point
#7
Neither are contract phones and I have now also updated the firmware on the tattoo and it is now also unlocked to all networks! However it cost me £20 to get it unlocked so I can no longer off that £30 cash on top. To keep with the original offer, I can still offer £10.

Condition wise:

W995 - Very good, pocket marks and one slight indent on the bottom. I would say 8.

Tattoo - Two minor nicks on the back. Flawless screen. Probably also 8.

I have boxes and all accessories for both including speaker dock for W995. I bought the W995 PAYG and the Tattoo is hardly a phone someone would buy on contract!

The only thing is and I know you said no in your original post, I would need you to send the phone first, for two reasons:

1 - If I sent both phones, my wife wouldn't have a phone at all.

2 - Whilst I am not doubting you, you do have no feedback and that is pretty standard in these forums. I have feedback of 57 and thus can be trusted. I have bought phones, a wii, MP3 player and other stuff on this forum where I have received first and paid later. Anybody who has done a transaction with me would recommend me.

Let me know please.
#8
come to think of it mate, the sole reason im trying to get an iphone and cash or straight swap for an iphone (better model) is for the sat nav, and convenience of having it at hand as and when i need it..

however your offer is v. good and another problem would be the send now pay upon arrivel, seen your feedback, your probably genuine just like me, but i dont trust anyone in this world mate!
#9
Fair enough.

A piece of advice though - there is about a 1% chance that someone on this forum will part with over £200 of cash to someone with zero feedback without getting the phone first. Just like you don't trust anyone, noone else needs to trust you either. But just like eBay, would you trust a powerseller with 1000 feedback or a newbie with zero feedback? Similarly, whilst someone has to trust someone with all online sales, it is easier to trust that person who has a lot of people saying "yeah, you can trust him/her" rather than someone who has no backing at all.

Just think about it if you genuinely want to sell or trade your phone. By all means, if the buyer has no feedback too then yeah, demand money first. But a buyer with feedback, just be flexible.

My offer still stands if you change your mind though it won't stand for long!
#10
Fair comment!
#11
thanks for the advise mate, taken into consideration, and no problem.

i do have nearly 200 feedback on ebay, so be it, its not the highest feedback score buts its all positive 100% feedback and the account has been in use since 05/06, although ide say it wasnt used properly due not not understanding how it worked untill 08!

ill probably be in touch via this thread to you tomorrow if i have no luck here, and i will let you know either way if i want to do the trade or not.. pitty you dont have an iphone to offer me, ide of ripped your hands of (so to speak lol)

thanks mate

I get what you're saying about the eBay feedback but think of it in reverse. Imagine asking for £250 for a phone on eBay with zero feedback but citing that you have HUKD feedback. It'll be difficult, even with eBay buyer and seller protection and PayPal too.

Here on HUKD, there is none of that protection. I've just myself been conned out of £100 phone by a seller with 120 feedback! If that can happen, how likely is it that someone with no feedback at all can be reliable? Again not saying you aren't, but you can see how easy it is to scam someone:

- list a £500 phone.
- accept an offer of £400.
- take money.
- disappear.
- worst that can happen - HUKD can ban you. Ah well, you've made £400.

Does that make sense?

In regards to the trade, I do also have an ipod touch 8gb first gen if any good.
#13
Is your 9700 been on a contract?
Also is it registered to you. As I sold a brand new one of these not so long back (dad gave it me through his business) to get an iPhone but fancy a change and the 9700 did look pretty cool. Just that when I sold mine it was un registered as it was new so the buyer could just stick his sim in and away he went with all the blackberry features. If it's been used it needs unlocking so to speak By your operator to be able to use a different sim and use all the blackberry features. Oherwise I'm stuck with your freinds list and other things.

Oh yea I got a black 3g 16 gb iPhone here for trade in great condition. How much extra $$$ you wanting?

Also would u be prepared to maybe meet up and trade as like other person interested theres not a chance I would send anything first to someone with zero feedback. We've all had to start somewhere on here and sending 1st or 1/2 now 1/2 later is standard practise on here for the first few transactions.
#14
Would you take BB 8520 black on T-mobile? If so whats the top up in cash? Thanks
#15
Marks out of 10 for my Iphone 8gb, probably a 7 and it's a 7 because there is a little bit of plastic missing between the volume button and silver rim, it's somthing you would have to really look hard for to find. I also have a Nokia N80 to add to the deal.

hi mate, my blackberry is o2 branded and im assuming its locked to o2. its pay and go all its life and hasnt come from a contract.

as for the registration of the phone, ive never registered the phone via blackberry or o2 for use with my simcard? i sent off for a simplicity 12 month deal (600mins, unlimited text, unlimited blackberry) for £15p/m, i think this is now £20p/m? all i did was plug it in, and off i went!

but tbh mate im not very hi-tech with the blackberry service thing.. anyhow..

interested in your iphone, could you tell me out of 10 the condition, marks on the back and screen etc.. so i can determine a price from what your phone condition is mate.

also, i am up for meeting up if your not too far away, just aslong as we can come to an agreement!
thank you for your interest! mike

hiya mate, my mum has a express music 5800 and tbh mate i dont like it.. and i have a modded xbox360 myself so i wont be needing one of those...

however come to think of it.. if you have a wii modded with hard drive?? (forgot i wanted one of those for my g.f lol)
#25
Lol i do indeed have a modded wii but i think ill be leaving it here for my parents im afraid. If I sell off my xbox 360 Ill most likely take the phone for cash? Best price you could do?

u sure i cant tempt u enough ;) haha.. naah no worries mate!

be £215 minimum price wont budge from that due to the condition and the prices they are going for on ebay! (i know theres fees involved etc)

my sister wants the phone and if i cant find someone on here today they ill take a massive loss just to keep her happy really.. (least favourable thing i want to do!!)

surely u can get your parents into COD:MW2 :P then they'll want your xbox 360 and ill take your wii ;) haha

Edited By: myksterx on Sep 11, 2010 18:48: joke
#27
LOL! Im afraid the wii will be staying here, if they didnt use it id definitely be rid of it, sorry. Well thats a very fair price so you have a buyer here. But before i pay for anything, can i see some pictures and can it be unlocked easily?
#28
hi there myksterx, i've got a soft modded wii with guitar hero world tour complete band set if youre interested?
#29
thanks to everyone interested, on the night i said if it wasnt sold ide be taking a loss to keep my sister happy..

i ended up swapping her iphone 8gb 3g for my blackberry, shes made up and well, i took a loss but aslong as shes happy!

thanks for everyone interested - thread can now be closed or expired?
