Hi all,

Selling my iPhone 5 as I have now upgraded. This was a replacement from Apple in May this year so is in warranty with them until May next year. Has been in a case the whole time, as you can see from the photos there are no scratches or dents. Happy to answer any questions.

Comes with all accessories and box.
- Woodsy1

Phone no longer under warranty, my mistake.

Replacements usually come with only 3 months warranty or until your original warranty expires, you can double check with the serial number here https://selfsolve.apple.com/agreementWarrantyDynamic.do best to check before selling so you have no complaints after sale.

Thanks Angela, I was told when I got the phone that it was a year's warranty but I will double check. Apple legally have to cover you for a replacement through EU law anyway.

Yes I have just checked, the phone is no longer under warranty, I will amend the description. What delivery would you require? I am happy to deliver for the £200 I mentioned if it's just standard delivery that you require.

Just an update. Received the phone yesterday and there seems to be an issue with the screen. There is a faint line that runs from the top of the screen to the bottom of the screen. Have contacted woodsy1 on here and also through text message. He has asked me to send photos which I have done. Just waiting for reply.
[Moderator]#13
andysteb & Woodsy1, please keep this thread updated on how this is being resolved, thanks
#14
Another update. Have had the following text from woodsy1.

'I'm sorry but I am not taking an item back that is now damaged. The screen had no issues when I sent it, I even took it to the apple shop to confirm that there were no issues with it. For all I know it's a different iPhone. I know for a fact that the phone had no issues when I sent it.'
#15
If the op is saying it wasn't there before, can you not claim on insurance? And op you have the imei to ensure its the same phone so that's crap.

WOW! I'm really sorry andysteb, that's just rotten mate. Clearly he knew what he was doing eh! Can't trust anyone, bloody pathetic!

As above, Karma is indeed a Bitch, and he'll get his- but that doesn't resolve the issue, or get u your money back for a product bought in good faith!

Shame on you op!!
#17
I should really have kept the discussion in the thread but when he didn't reply to my initial PM I text him.

Further more to the line down the screen there is also quite a prominent dent next to the volume controls which was the first thing i noticed as it was claimed that the phone was scratch and dent free. I can see from the photos that woodsy1 posted that the dent isn't visible. This didnt initially bother me and I was prepared to look past it.

I will post some photos on here once i get chance.

Yeah he played you good mate, I'm really sorry. 200 quid may not be much to some folk, but when times are as hard as they are these days then 200 quid is a fair chunk of anyone's cash. Christmas round the corner and we just don't have money to **** up the wall.... Woodsy1 knew exactly what he was doing by the looks of it as I said Shame on him!

Every dog gets their day mate :(

Pay up and give the guy his money back sicko! Get the wrecked mobile back u sold under false pretences n lied about, and get it fixed. Then sell it (elsewhere) on to someone. Do the right thing....

Wasting my time no doubt, but you know what you did, so sort it!!

Taking money from folks kids mouths, esp at this time of year- sad git.

Should ban him ...

Should ban him ...

Have a feeling that may just be the case if he doesn't resolve this. A ban on sales/trades etc!

And rightly so too!

The abuse I am getting here is quite frankly ridiculous. The phone I sent had zero issues, as per my note to Andy. I even went to the Apple Store that is 5 minutes away from my work to check if there were any issues that I could get sorted before sending it off. I have yet to see Andy prove that the picture he sent me is of the same phone, so until that is the case, I have done absolutely nothing wrong. People who are getting on their high horse and calling me out is so ridiculous.
#23
Ok here are some pictures. not sure if i've done this right?!

Thanks for the help with this Guys.

Firstly, I like to give people the benefit of the doubt. Woodsy1 may be genuine in what he says. The phone my have been fine before he sent it, or he actually may have not realised that it was faulty as It can be hard to spot in normal use. i initially spotted it on the setup screen which made it easier to see.
This may have been damaged in transit but the item was adequately packaged (I myself would have used bubble wrap but hey ho). I cant see how the dent would have gotten there in transit as it looks like it has hit something hard and blunt.

I guess its just my word against his and may just have to accept this as a life lesson and not be so trusting of people. I have bought and sold plenty of things on here in the past and it has always been a pleasant experience and I hope this experience hasn't tainted it for me!

Gemmac333, Although I'm not struggling, this isn't an ideal time of year to be £200 down. i guess i can sell the phone on ebay as faulty and try and recoup some of what I paid back.

Either way if it was me selling the phone I would take responsibility and try to claim on insurance.

What proof do you need that this is the same phone? I will gladly prove that this is it.

Please provide the screenshot of the IMEI with the issue clearly viewable Andy.

No problem, please send it to my email too.

Mods am I allowed to be displaying an IMEI on a public forum or should i keep that private to Woodsy1?

Hi we wouldn't advise that you post this information on a public forum - you can PM them just the imei number off thread if you are personally happy to supply them with this info but them please move back to on thread negotiations until the sale is agree
#30
just to confirm that i have sent a photo of the phone displaying the IMEI number and the fault to woodsy1's email address.
#31
Further update. Woodsy1 has requested the phones serial number as he does not know the IMEI number. Will send photo this evening as I am currently out.
#32
I sent Woodsy1 a photo of the phone displaying the serial, however this does not show the fault with the vertical line as its on a white background. I sent a video showing the fault and then clicking settings to show the serial. I am waiting for a reply on here now.
#33
I received a text last night from Woodsy1 saying that he cant view the video on his phone and will view it when he gets home from work. I am still awaiting a reply.

Anything yet mate?

I can't believe this, andysteb is still waiting for a resolution but it's obvious woodsy1 has ripped him off and it's likely he'll get away with it as all this rubbish in the meantime is simply clouding the issue. Lets look at the facts: (1) woodsy1 didn't photograph the phone with the screen turned on or with the sides and buttons showing thus masking the alleged defects. (2) woodsy1 initially said the phone had 12 months warranty but then conceded under advice that it had none. He went on to say he would change the 12 month warranty claim in the description but never has. (3) woodsy1 claimed he took a "May replacement iPhone" to Apple to have it checked out prior to the sale, WHY?, who does that? (4) woodsy1 then infers that it is andysteb who is trying to con him with a substitute phone, really? We then enter the smoke screen of IMEI numbers and videos that won't play etc. The whole vibe of this tells me woodsy1 is ripping andysteb off, what do you think? Don't worry woodsy1 you'll probably get away with it using the Latin (Get out of Jail Free Card), 'Caveat Emptor' Let the Buyer Beware! Not a very nice thing to do though.........
#37
We can all see that there's nothing really I can do here and woodsy1 knows it. He will probably just retire this username and continue using the forums with a new one.

I have taken the phone into an Apple store today and was told that it would cost £100 to replace the screen, which is something that I'm just not prepared to pay. I also took it to an independent phone shop and they quoted £65... again its more than I'm willing to pay. After checking online a lot of people are getting (or got) this issue with phones that had already had a new screen fitted by Apple but could take them in and get them fixed under warranty.

I bought this phone for my girlfriend. She didn't really need it, she already has an iphone 5 but I thought she could do with a bigger memory as her 16gb was getting a bit full. I was then going to pass her old phone on to a family member for Christmas. So thanks for that Woodsy1. Not even any kind of apology or offer of assistance of any kind.
#38
Sorry to 'interfere' guys, but whilst the problem should have been disclosed (assuming for a moment that the OP was aware of it), would it really have impacted the value by very much? I'm not an iPhone fan personally, but I'd have thought that a tidy 32gb 5 with a MINOR (phone still fully works etc.) issue would still have fetched around £200 wouldn't it? Or £180 worst case? I definitely don't think you've lost £200 Andy.

p.s. I'm not a friend of OP or anything, just read the thread and was trying to help put things into perspective. I buy and sell a lot of used electronics, and minor issues are part of the game IMO

Hi, sorry to hear about what happened, but you could get a replacement lcd on ebay for about 20 pounds. I know it might seem like a big task changing the screen by yourself, but it is actually very simple, follow a step by step video on youtube and you can see for yourself. Hope it all works out though :)
#40
There is a lot of drift happening here! ezzer72, although I welcome your 'interference' I just wanted to highlight this is about deception not value for money. From my perspective woodsy1 was out to deceive someone by not disclosing the true condition of the phone. You are right that even if the true condition of the phone had been disclosed it is unlikely it would have impacted on its value but then someone willing to spend the time and money to fix it would have bought it instead of andysteb who bought it in good faith as a present for his girlfriend. andysteb could put it on ebay with proper disclosure and still get his money back but why should he? numb224 again you are correct about the simplicity of fixing it but again why should andysteb have to go through that? Four out of 5 of the items that I have recently purchased on eBay, I have returned for a full refund due to lack of disclosure but both eBay and PayPal have the mechanisms to do that, unfortunately this sales medium doesn't. I'm just keen not to lose sight of what has gone on here because from my experience this happens so often that it seems to be acceptable to con people in this way. And no I'm not the Police and I don't know andysteb other than what I have read on here. I am finding it fascinating how this can happen right in front of us but no one can do anything about it. It would be nice to have some feedback from woodsy1!
