Hey buddy. Probably good if you clear this up for people. I'm guessing there was just a mix up, but it would be better cleared up. I presume because it's locked it's sorted?

I will delete this post if it's considered irrelevant, but i'm not the only one to have read that thread and been wondering!
#3
sorry pal, its not worth anywhere near what your asking.
#4
I'm sending the phone tomorrow morning. The guy has made something out of nothing and has been harassing me about it all the time. I'm a very busy person and I couldn't send the phone straight away because I had to work late at work on Friday. Please delete the post bazzaric because there was no issue to begin with with regards to the phone. It will be sent tomorrow morning.

i have a G4 dual 1.42 ghz (top end before they went to G5), 2 gb RAM souped max, fw400 and fw800 original, 120 gb + 120gb internals, usb + usb2 + fw400 pci, pioneer 110dvr, osx 10.4 ... and sad as it is i cant even flog this for £350 so i still use this for my main work / FCP ... and still prefer it to the lappie. i'd like to see how you can sell yours for £500.
#6
way overpriced look at around £300 for this!
#7
That's a hefty Apple premium :w00t:
A PC with similar specs would barely sell for £100.

I think the buyer for the phone was rather premature to have started the other thread so quickly. However, your own behaviour hasn't helped your case. Leaving to one side the apparent refusal to accept payment by a method you'd advertised as acceptable, you agreed to send the phone on the Friday for next day delivery, but then didn't. Post offices are open on Saturdays, but you didn't send it then either. It also didn't get sent on Monday. The worst of it is that you didn't keep the buyer updated on the situation. The buyer hasn't "made something out of nothing" - you haven't kept in contact with him, & while £110 may be small change to you, a lot of people work hard for their money & that amount isn't small change to them. Everyone's entitled to some basic courtesy & an explanation/apology when they've parted with money for goods that don't appear to have been supplied. Now you've got their money, you seem to be sending the item at your personal convenience, because you're "a very busy person". That's absolutely not the way to do business.

Bazzaric shouldn't remove their post, because without it I & others would have only seen one side of the story. I'm looking for a Mac, so this thread caught my eye. But even if I thought this Mac was good value for money (which I don't), I now wouldn't even think of buying it from you because you've given the impression that you take quite a cavalier approach with other people's money. :-(

THANKYOU!

I would like to state that I was not being "waa waa - wheres my phone" - I was miffed at the fact that we had made a deal - a deal that he was happy to take money from me for, but not to complete. Coupled with the fact that this "busy man" is able to be online at 4:20pm on the friday that he was so busy that he couldn't send my phone in the first place - something told me I was being stiched up big time.

Oh - one more thing - As per the very last PM you sent me (which was some time on friday I believe - I still want my £10 refund seeing as the phone was in no way posted as per our agreement.
banned#10
why not just refund buyer in total stick the phone back on in a week as this transaction looks like it could be more trouble than it's worth OP :thumbsup:
#11
I did ask for that actually, on Friday - met with no reply for three days.

At this point though I'm sticking to my guns and saying I want the phone. I'm not getting messed around for absolutely nothing.

Now this is interesting. I happen to frequent the XDA-Developers website and noticed a familiar name on a couple of topics...then out of curiosity I stumbled upon this ;

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=2290786#post2290786

Now...Here's hoping that little issue has been resolved - Or I will be asking for a lot more than a £10 refund. As far as I can remember there was no mention on the original thread that the battery for the phone I paid a £60 markup on (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=2290898#post2290898) had a battery that didn't charge beyond 25%....
#13
bump :)
#14
Just an update - Still no phone. No money. No nothing. No apology, no tracking number, no confirmation that the phone has been posted. So in a nutshell - I paid £110 for a phone to be delivered on the 28th of June, it's now the 3rd of July and i've had virtually no communication and no phone. Awesome.
#15
Did'nt you get his telephone number mate, am sorry for you, I think the mods have to step in and stop him from trading further until you get your phone ?

I've sent you a PM.
#17
Yeah, cheers for that :)

Strange how it took the inclusion of a moderator to make things start moving, eh?

Turns out he "forgot" to mention that the battery is infact on its way out. So i'm going to "forget" that I agreed to pay £100 for it and get some of my money back.

"ou bought the item based on the description given. You agreed to buy the phone as described. I genuinely forgot to state the battery problem, it wasn't done intentionally so I have complied fully with the deal."

A PM from good ol' Sam.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=2290786#post2290786

The thread on XDA Developers where Sam describes how the battery is naffed. Note the date.

http://hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=199308

The thread in which I bought the XDA from Sam. Once again note the date.



What do you say people, shall we take a vote?

Those of you who think little Sam forgot to mention the battery in the phone he is trying to sell is naffed three days after trying to figure out what was wrong - say "Duuuh what?"

Those of you who think that Sam bought the phone for £40, found out the battery was naffed and a replacement would cost £35 so decided to sell it on here with a £60 markup and neglect to tell anyone the problem - say "Aye".

But hey - apparently a S.E T300 (worth about a tenner) is sufficient compensation for a naff battery and the price of paying a further £35 to get a new one....

It's not cool to post PMs, even though I know your annoyed. we are at a stage where you need to keep speaking to the seller and get your money back/out of the deal. It's gone too far, and you won't enjoy the phone anymore
#20
Oh no i'm keeping the phone (when it arrives) - I just want some compo back now
#21
Well the phone turned up - only 7 days after I paid for next day delivery.

The battery is well and truely screwed - my missus watched it go from 100% down to about 80% in the space of ten minutes - fantastic.

RT, I've tried PM-ing you, but you're over your storage quota. Please let us know when you've freed up some space. :)
