I dont want to buy, but wanted to tell everyone how great this phone is as its been increadibly under advertised.

I got one of these 3 weeks ago on insurance and was not looking forward to recieving it as i had not really heard much about it, I had a sony xperia x1 previous.

But this pone is amazing, the web OS is great and has alot of support for it apps wise as its a very popular phone state side (USA)

The touchstone is also very cool, wireless charging :P just place the phone on the stone and the battery fills up :D

Anyway good luck with this sale, just wanted to say this is definatly worth the money you are asking for it.

would u consider £190?

would u consider £190?


i think 230's pretty cheap itself, including postage, making the phone just over 220, ebay are flying them out for 250-300, so i think it's going pretty cheap, what could you stretch to?
#5
£200 ? is it easy to unlock ?
#6
i've googled it, looks like a trip to local town/market/phone shop and they can pretty much do it there and then, and the lowest i will drop to is 220, that leaves 215 after postage!
#7
meet me in the middle £210 ?

would u consider posting first, you'r feedback is excellent but they've all been for lower value items ? I've got good feedback here and will pay as soon as I get the phone :)
#8
would u be interested in any of these for trade

Matrix Trilogy DVD
Transformers HD-DVD
Braveone - HD-DVD
40 Year Virgin - HD-DVD
Casino Royale - Bluray
Band of Brothers DVD boxset

Again - i'm not interested in the palm.. Unless you'd go for a Nokia 5800 Navigator Edition (with 8GB SD Card - plus satnav) + Cash on top... But presume ya not from ya other posts.

I'd just like to agree with the other member, i've had chance to play with a Palm Pre.. And it has some obvious flaws hardware wise.. But the WebOS on it is bloody amazing, far exceeds both Andriod and iPhone OSX in my opinion.

You will not be dissapointed!

I don't see anywhere in the thread that specifies the additional charger (with cover) is included. However I do want the seller to acknowledge the concern raised.

*Perhaps I should read the OP - I can see where the buyer is coming from. Up to you 2 to sort.

Regards

From what i thought, this phone came with a charger, usb cable and phone.

I've sent, a charger, usb cable, and phone,

Seller is claiming a different charger, a 'touchstone' one, which i thought was included,

turn's out the charger, is an extra, a 35/50 pound extra, which as far as i can see, just charges the phone.

I've never used the charger, only used the usb to charge, so as far as i was concered, the charger he was after i sent?

Mate the touchstone is a contact charger - it comes with a better back casing than the one provided with the palm pre, also the charge unit.. Allowing you to just place the phone on it to charge..

That's what the "touchstone" is, which is what you said in your original post... So no wonder the buyer expected it..:

Includes all the box/touchstone/usb charger

Since the touchstone is up to an extra £50 and you'd put that it was included the buyer would understandably be unhappy
#28
he KNEW it didnt come with it, and knew what the difference was. And failed to ask me specificly this is what he wanted. If he knew so badly that he wanted it, shouldnt he have checked BEFORE buying it.

i didnt, i thought this was the charger? as i never used it, never intended to either.

I've offered a refund, he can't be bothered, he just wants me to pay another 50 quid. for a charger,

he's sent a sealed phone, which is now used and open as p/x.

why people cant ask a question when they know the answer,

a simple " is this the charger with the phone or not " he knew the difference, i didnt....

You mentioned it in OP and other users mentioned it without you correcting them. Then you said it was cool to charge with. So why would the buyer not think it was included??
#30
well its not, it sounds cool, i dunno if it is or not, never used the thing.

again, happy to refund. not my problem anymore

You've open his "sealed" phone - by doing so you have devalued the item.. As he can no longer re-sell it as BNIB, which is a big buying point for some. So a straight swap back is no longer "fair".

YOU should of known the difference and described your items correctly - if you say it comes with a touchstone.. Any buyer will presume it comes with a touchstone, they won't think "mmm, maybe this seller doesn't know what a touchstone is.. should i ask"..

It's your responsibility to send the goods as described - it's even against the law not to.. Yes, even with second hand goods..

You made the mistake - not the buyer. So you should be paying for that mistake, not him.
#32
again.... i DIDNT KNOW THE DIFFERENCE, if i've never used it, i'll assume it comes with it, especially when every one comes on the thread saying 'how cool the touchstone is' I'll assume it comes with it.

So what do i do with a sealed phone box, look at it? take a picture and post it on a wall somewhere?....

Considering the phone that's p/exc is worth, say 90 quid, and 100 cash, is 190.

I'll quite happily refund, send it back, unlock for 20 quid, and trade in to cex for 270. As they're selling for 450 the palm pre unlocked for that.

So 'fairness' still doesnt come into it.

Why an extra charger makes a differnce i still don't know, maybe you think it does something else apart from charge a phone.....
banned#33
You said it was cool to charge with, have you got a short term memory or something?

You also said the touchstone came with it which it didn't so if its such a small thing you should buy it and send to the buyer as he dealt with you as you said it was included


Why should the buyer lose out on your stupidity for not knowing the difference?

It's not his responsibility to know the difference.. It's yours..

You made a mistake - your fault.. NOT HIS - get this through your mind please.

You (yes you again) have devalued his phone by opening it - which is a result of YOUR mistake.

You can not simply do a straight refund / swap back.. Because you - by opening it - have knocked potential resale value off his phone, it would be unfair to do so.. You would have to give him £x agreed amount to cover the value you've wiped off it by opening, that would be fair... Or just buy him a touchstone.

And whatever deal was concluded makes no difference - you accepted a trade.. You must forfill your trading obligations by providing the goods as described, otherwise you're in breach.

The admins will ban anyone here permanently if they do not meet their trading obligations.

I think you wildly overestimate how much the pre is worth anyway - and CEX are well known for saying "we've got no cash in" on goods like that. They go for quite allot less than you think, plus with the Palm Pre Plus they will only drop further.

Its alright its less than that here : http://www.expansys.com/d.aspx?i=190226&partner=froogle

And I don't think your bonkers just that you scammed the buyer
banned#37
The thread is for the benefit of the buyer and seller now. I think the position is quite clear.

If the item can be resold to cex or elsewhere and the buyer doesn't lose out, then it shouldn't be too much of a problem to resolve. I'd say, upon reflection, that the item has been described incorrectly and OP acknowledges this. The onus should be on the OP to resolve to the buyers satisfaction, which clearly has not happened yet.

I have offered to go splits (which I thought was fair) on the charger but the OP just doesn't want to pay. I have contacted the mods for a resolution as I don't know what I can do really :x
#39
OP has completely vanished, isn't answering pm's, hasn't been online since the 9th of Feb, he's probably ditched this userid for another one, this has been a nightmare of a deal, had to send the phone off to O2 as it wasn't holding charge, the mod's haven't been helpful either, he's just got away with it, it seems :-(

Unlucky pal. The OP sounded like he couldn't give a flying one once he had his goods as described and Mods couldn't even see where he said about touchstone even though it was in posts other than the OP so guess they won't be able to help you either
