Selling my iPhone 4 as we need the money for Xmas. Has warranty until october next year and is Factory unlocked. It was originally bought from the Apple store in Glasgow. Its in as new condition and comes with everything it came with originally, even the apple stickers. The headphones have never been used. Its 16gb and has no marks anywhere.

The only swap considered would be for an iPad, other than that no swaps.

I live right next to a post office so will post it immediately if payment is received during business hours. If not then first thing the next day.
Shipping/Payment:
Bank Transfer or Paypal.
Location:
Edinburgh

When chasing with Royal Mail I found this on the Website which I wasn't aware of beforehand.

"The Special Delivery™ guarantee has been temporarily suspended for all SD items posted since Wednesday 1st December 2010. Although we are continuing to accept, prioritise and expect to deliver the majority of Special Delivery™ items at this time, the continuing severe weather conditions mean we cannot guarantee the delivery of items the next day in all areas.

We will restore the guarantee of delivery as soon as we can be sure we can honour the service promise in full."


Will keep an eye on the tracking info tomorrow and chase with Royal Mail if no change

Private messages which were sent

Basically given the phone for xmas and its coming up with an error. Put the micro sim in (o2) its not recognizing, restored the iPhone and get the following message.

"The sim card inserted in this iphone does not appear to be supported"

phoned up o2 they go theres no problem with the sim card, so i even reordered one, either this phone is locked to t-mobile, or the iphone usually comes with some sort of microsim which u need to use with itunes first then use the o2 sim. It has been restored etc and apple wont do nothing without the original receipt with the owners name.

Imei does not also match the box.
#24
The replies i received:

What is the error message that's coming up?

When you connect the iPhone to iTunes it should activate the micro sim, that message would only come up if it's either the micro sim from another iPhone (o2 need to de-authorize it at their end) or if the sim is for an iPad.

The iPhone is not locked to t-mobile, I've used it on o2 in the past

Apple do not require a receipt for any level of their support. They will be more than happy to replace the handset if you ask them.

It sounds like the sim card is "tethered" to another iPhone. I'm sorry but this is a sim card fault and the only thing I can suggest is either dealing further with o2 or taking the phone to an apple store. There's nothing more I can do

am at a loss as to what exactly you would like me to do? The issue is obviously with the Sim Card. The handset was working perfectly when I sent it as demonstrated in the pictures in the thread.

If you chose to send the iPhone back thats your choice, but I will not be able to pay for it and I will be more than happy to prove the handset works fully when I receive it.

Please Do. If Apple are unable to fix the issue instore they'll replace the handset. It seems however that the handset is fine as the error message specifically mentions the sim not being supported. If the handset was locked (which it is not) the message would be completely different. My opinion here is that something has gone wrong with the sim and once that is resolved you will find the iPhone to be fully functional.

At the apple shop this phone is locked to the orange network. I will request a full refund.
#26
You've made me look like a total Prat to the person I Gave it to. They took out a 12 month contract which they are now locked into. Full refund or £75 back your choice

shoneypops, could you please get in touch with your buyer directly to resolve this feedback issue as it was listed as 'Factory unlocked' but your buyer is stating that it is actually locked to Orange and that this has been confirmed in the Apple Store. If it was not unlocked then the item was not as described. You can both exchange relevant proof etc directly off thread and resolve at your earliest convenience, thank you. Also MOD PM'd.

I am dealing with this issue with the buyer, I have quoted this post however as myself and the buyer have already discussed that this was a warranty replacement phone from the Apple Store in Glasgow. Hence the IMEI not matching. The picture in post 2 also shows the same handset working on T-mobile (you can make out the network) so where the information comes from that the handset is locked to Orange I have no idea. Also the error message the buyer is seeing is not the message given when the device is locked and another Sim is used.

The buyer received this handset on the 10th of December and stated he was buying it on behalf of another member CollateralDamage as he was not online at the time was asked to buy it for him. I have no way of knowing what has been done to that handset in the 14 day period between the buyer recieving it and contacting me.

Also is posting PM's without permission not against forum rules?
#30
@MarzBarz

Can you please provide proof from Apple stating that the phone is locked to Orange? The picture I have in post 2 of this thread clearly shows the phone working on T-Mobile

Also can you post a picture of the Error Message your seeing?
#31
I think that this explains why the iphone works on both Orange and T Mobile

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-11199786

Looks like they are part of the same network.
#32
The Phone working on T-mobile has nothing to do with the network Merger, it was a T-mobile Sim
#33
I have just left westfield yes the phone was for collateral damage my in real life friend. I cannot provide proof now as I have left the apple store in westfield , stuck in traffic for the past hour. Tmobile and orange merged so sims work vice versa same with o2 and tesco also voda and asda.

I appreciate members are trying to help but please don't as it bumps the thread, this is a matter to be resolved between the seller and the buyer. I would suggest that the delay in reporting the fault is unusual as its now over 3 weeks since the item was received and on checking further the recipient mentioned by the buyer appears to have started a thread 9 days ago about this issue and was told to do a restore to resolve and the message appeared only after this was done :

My friend told me to restore the phone and then try it but once i did this itunes now just shows this message:


"The sim card inserted in this iphone does not appear to be supported"

"Only compatible sim cards from a supported carrier may be used to activate this iphone. Please insert the sim card that came with your iphone or visit a supported carrier's store to receive a replacement sim card.


http://www.hotukdeals.com/misc/iphone-4-sim-problem/834747

It's up to both members to provide proof to the other that it was factory unlocked / not factory unlocked and we are satisfied that shoneypops is taking steps to attempt to resolve this issue.

Like I said apple confirmed this I will supply the serial number, you call them and they will confirm it's locked on orange. Doesn't really matter who I got it for, the fact is you sold a phone which clearly wasnt unlocked.
#36
Also in regards to delays , the parcel was delayed, the micro sim was delayed by o2. Mainly because of the snow issues.
#37
Furthermore the apple representative even asked me why the phone was previously replaced. I go I don't know as it was purchased second hand. She suggested it was possibly unlocked through other means.
#38
I am afraid there is nothing more I can do to assist you with the problem your experiencing and here are the reasons why.

1) The Handset was supplied as a warranty replacement by Apple which you verified without any input from myself, Apple do not stock or provide locked devices in their retail stores, this has also been confirmed by a 3rd Party in thread. Therefore the handset must have been factory unlocked

2)There was a 14 day period between the handset being received before the fault and/or locked state of the handset being reported to myself. Neither of us has anyway of verifying what has happened to the handset during that time, including restore methods.

3) I simply do not have £425 to refund you for a handset that has been out of my possesion for nearly a month nor am I prepared to reimburse you or CollateralDamage for the purchase and ongoing costs of a contract as I have no control over your additional purchases. In my experience even the networks would not refund you due to handset issues.

4) Whilst only a small additional point, I have found an old screenshot taken on the device when I was using a Vodafone Sim (the screenshot was taken to show my OH the wallpaper I'd downloaded) I appreciate however that this screen shot could have came from any device.

http://i56.tinypic.com/qs0dp2.jpg

I empathise with how frustrating this must be for you, I also appreciate that you have traded here for a while and have many positive feedbacks however I am afraid there is too much ambiguity in the situation from your side for me to make any other choice. Please don't hesitate to contact me if any more information comes to light.
#39
I will message you the imei number. You phone apple up. Ask them what network it is on i will also provide original imei so they can cross reference it. Also what do you mean ambiguity? i buy things regulerly for people off here. The fact is you MIS-SOLD something.

If no avail i may have to go to small claims court.

I'll offer you £350 for it!

sorry...couldn't resist...

Just to add my own personal experience of this. I had my 3G replaced by apple in-store under their year warranty.
They locked the phone to vodafone, as this was the sim that was in it when I went in (I had previously hacked and unlocked it and used Orange too).
The phone worked fine on Vodafone until I did an OS update. At which point it came up with the error message in #34.

I took it in, they looked perplexed, and gave me a new phone and locked it again on Vodafone, and wouldn't leave it unlocked no matter what begging I did.

A month later, anotehr OS update and the same error message.
They replaced it again, but I finally realised what the problem was. The original phone was locked to Rogers in Canada, and an OS update over-writes what-ever the guys in the shop do, and reverts the phone to it's original state. And by original, I mean the original phone's state.
Not sure how they do it, but it's simultaneously impressive and frustrating.

I reckon your phone has had an OS update, or a restore, and it's reverted to it's original locked state.

Couple of suggestions:
Give Orange a call and quote the IMEI of the original and ask to pay to unlock it (I think it's £30).
Jailbreak it.

...or just sell it to me and be rid of your problems forever...
