Wanted: Orange San Francisco (shipping by Airmail) £110.00

6y, 1m agoPosted 6 years, 1 month agoFeedback:0 Positive/0 Neutral/0 Negative
I’m searching an Orange San Francisco. Basically I would just call Orange until they give me the phone for £79 (mentioning I have already PAYG) - worked here for everybody who tried hard enough ;-)

Unfortunately I’m living outside the UK. That’s why I am searching someone who is selling his phone to Germany. I will pay in GBP via Paypal, so the currency exchange fees are on my side. The seller can wait until the payment is fully confirmed in his account before he sends the packet.

I think £100 including secured Airmail (£9.30 with RM Airsure) for a phone in mint condition is a fair price.

I’ve read the trading advices. Since I have no feedback yet and I’m not from the UK the following points help to assure a secure trade for the seller:

A) I can PM my eBay account (100% Positive) and the seller can send me a message via eBay to check if it’s my account
B) I can call the seller via German landline and the seller can confirm my address using a public phonebook (reverse search my number) [1]
C) I pay via Paypal in GBP (not EUR) - currency exchange fees are on my side
D) Seller can wait until payment is confirmed before sending the phone
E) Shipping is secured, including tracking and delivery confirmation via Royal Mail Airsure [2]

I hope you will not ignore this request just for the reason shipping is outside the UK. Thanks for your offers and keep the good work on HUKD!

Best regards from Germany,
Dominic

(The phone with box and wrapping is between 500-600gramm, so it is just £4.40 for a small package by Airmail + £4.90 for Airsure)

@mods: I asked in the feedback if shipping is allowed outside UK. I tried to explain everything as detailed as possible, that’s why the text is a bit longer. Hope this is ok. If you want me to edit something, please write me a PM.

Hello adaviyya,

Thanks for your reply. Sounds good to me. I will write you a PM with my information.

Technically everything is fine with the phone?
You mentioned in the SF thread that your battery life was not good. Was this due to your heavy usage or is there a manufacturring failure with your phone? I know that I can’t except a one week battery lifetime using a smartphone (especially in this price-class). Will I be fine when I charge it every night or does the battery not survive a complete day?
#4
The phone I mentioned before is different. This one is brand new. I replaced the old one.
#5
I would sell but as you can imagine, I'd want the money to be cleared in my bank for several days first before I post out. Plus RM Airsure would be only £9.30 if the phone weighed less than 120g, which it won't! See table below.

You're looking more at the 500g mark, with £500 compensation which is £13.19

Thus, I'd be willing to sell mine for £115 delivered. It'll come unlocked, brand new and if you want me to root it, I can.


Weight up to For £ 41 maximum compensation per price for loss/damage For £ 500 maximum compensation per price for loss/damage
20g £5.50 £8.00
40g £5.78 £8.28
60g £6.04 £8.54
80g £6.29 £8.79
100g £6.55 £9.05
120g £6.82 £9.32
140g £7.09 £9.59
160g £7.36 £9.86
180g £7.63 £10.13
200g £7.87 £10.37
220g £8.12 £10.62
240g £8.37 £10.87
260g £8.61 £11.11
280g £8.84 £11.34
300g £9.09 £11.59
500g £10.69 £13.19
1kg £14.94 £17.44

I'd be interested in one ?

OK, that’s fine. With the new one there was no battery issue? How long can you use it with one charge with average usage?

If you say everything is technically ok, I think we have a deal. If my estimation with the weight of the boxed phone with wrapping was right, the shipping should be £9.30 with tracking.

OK deal agreed pending payment.
The delivery will be 13.90 as AV1985 put it.
I expect it to be 550gm including safe wrapping/packaging.

@dh058977
Thanks – threat is getting a bit mixed up otherwise…

@ adaviyya
I am still interested. Can you estimate the weight of the box? I think it is 600g. If shipping sould be more than £9.30, I will pay the difference of course!

@ AV1985
Thanks for your offer. I have to wait for adaviyyas reply first. About shipping:

RM Airmail is £4.40 for a small package up to 600g (depending on weight) [1]
RM Aisure (tracking, delivery information, compensation) is additional £4.90 (not depending on weight) [2]

So together it is £4.40+£4.90=£9.30. That’s how a friend of mine delivered his packages to Germany during his internship and never had problems.

i am sorry for bumping this thread but do think the seller should be aware should this phone go missing and a claim needs to be made they will only be able to claim up to £41, sellers should aslo be aware it may only be tracked up until leaving the uk, i have used this sefvice twice and it has never been recorded or signed for in other country

from RM

However, the maximum compensation for cash and money sent via Airsure® is £100. Please note that cash cannot be sent at all to a number of countries – check with Royal Mail Customer Services for more details.

# Are all Airsure® items electronically tracked until they are delivered?

We track all Airsure® items until they leave the UK. The item is then handed over to the destination country's postal service as a priority item. In most circumstances you will also be able to get electronic confirmation of delivery via Track & Trace.

@sassie
Thanks for that information - It is ok helping here.
I didn't know that mobile telephones can not be additionally covered :-(

I hope shipping will not be the dealbreaker! I am thinking about a solution!

sorry mate, I am out on this one.
Good luck with your search.

UPDATE (had first to check some additional points):

Price:
all inclusive for £110 (added £10 for Paypal fees etc.)

Shipping:
Royal Mail Airsure Small Packets

Weight including wrapping is estimated 550g. See overview RM shipping options [1] and postage calculator [2].You get the cheaper rate for “small packets” because you are sending goods without any personal correspondence. The table from AV1985 was not for small packets.

Payment:
via Paypal in GBP (no exchange fees for seller) but not as Paypal gift
Paypal fees for receiving payment will apply (3.9% + 0.20 GBP) [3]


I searched a lot for shipping options. Small packet via Airmail and additional Airsurance is the best way. Ebay is also recommending “Royal Mail Airsure Small Packets” for shipping outside the UK. Sassie mentioned the additional coverage option is not available for mobile phones. I am fine with the standard coverage as long as I have the tracking number and can see when you brought the packet to the post office.


If you have any questions you can also send me your landline phone number via PM and I can give you a call from Germany.
