Faulty iPhone 8GB (dodgy screen) jailbroken and unlocked £120.00

Hi all,

I have a dodgy iPhone for your perusal. Bought it 14 days ago, still have box etc.

The screen has gone a bit skew whiff - the top half of the screen wont respond, and a very small area at the bottom right corner. Failing that(!) the phone is fine.

Reason for not returning is that I have unlocked it etc and also I managed to stupidly drop it on the first day, which has left a bit of a dent(not particularly noticeable) at the top right hand corner. Also lost the receipt. Although the screen didnt go dodgy because of the drop(I assume, worked fine for another ten days), obviously CPW are going to assume that it is!!

wouldnt have thought it would be too hard for someone who knows what they are doing to fix this - fairly common fault by all reports.

Open to offers, but I've set the asking price possibly fairly high, just so I dont get stupidly low offers - too low and its not worth it,as could use another method such as insurance to recoup some of the money.

Feel free to ask any questions!!

*EDIT* by the way, anyone who wants to give it a bash, you can get service direct from apple as it is showing in warranty - I just dont want to as dont live anywhere near an apple store and bit suss about posting it in with the dent and unlocked!!

Would prefer cheque, but will take Paypal.

Will post special delivery, I'm guessing P+P will be around £8 ?

have u tried bricking it.... unbricking... updateing then jailing again.... this quite often will fix it (think its something to do with its software gone mad or something..... did it to a friends and it fixed it)
I havent actually -would you mind telling me which options on Ziphone you need to do each time to do this?


Will keep up in case it doesnt work lol ;)
So the bottom half of screen works? If so ill offer £80
cant rember m8 just undo what you did to unlock it.... update it... the jailbreak again (try google m8!) wortha try isnt it
u might be able to update without re-locking it but dont hold me to that!
The bottom half other than a very small section at bottom right corner works, yes.

£80 is probably below what I could let it go for to be honest...
Is it boxed?
definately be worth doing a complete restore, then doing the jailbreak/unlock again
try fixing it m8 first (sorry marzbar) but you could then get like 169 for it or more!
I have the box etc yes. Its basically brand new.
Try doing the above if not then my offer is still here £80
ill do cash over the counter no delay in clearing or no fees
OK the re-lock etc doesnt appear to have worked.

Just so you know where I'm at, if I claim through insurance I'm going to lose about £60. I'm happy enough to knock another tenner off coz I really cant b bothered with that hassle, but the least that would be worth it for me is £100 + P+P.
just update through itunes.... then unlock!
no dont update through itunes that can mess up the iphone.

You know by claiming insurance does that bar the phone?
Done it - it aint working :(
Why would it bar the phone?
eeck i thought you meant report it to o2 and then get another one.

Ok so my offer is still here £80.
No no.

Well as I said above - £100 + P+P would be the limit of what it would be worth to sell it for, so cant for £80 im afraid - thanks for the offer though.
Can i see a picture please.
You could - but will have to borrow a camera - I've only ever used camera on camera phones and im without one at the moment!!

I'll get a picture sorted ASAP - just to clarify though, I would class it as immaculate other than the dent at top right corner. It has some finger marks on it which will rub off and that really is it. But yes will get a picture :)
