Wanted: Red Mobile Phone

AV1985 Avatar
7y, 4m agoPosted 7 years, 4 months agoFeedback:86 Positive/0 Neutral/4 Negative
I wish I was joking, but here's a conversation between me and my wife:

Wife: I want a new phone.
Me: You just got one.
Wife: Yeah, but I want another one.
Me: ...
Me: Ok, what sort of phone do you want:
Wife: I dunno...
Me: Camera, music player, etc?
Wife: ...I want a red phone.
Me: How about pink?
Wife: No, a red phone... and if not red, then silver.

So basically, I want to buy her a red phone!

From my own PoV, something decent. Decentish camera, mostly as long as it's reliable. Any brand, any model will be considered!

Looking to spend, give or take, about £100!

I do have a phone to give in part exchange but that thread was closed less than 7 days ago so I'm not offering that here for the timebeing.

So if anyone has one, please post!
Shipping/Payment:
Included. Payment by BT or PayPal.

I have a Nokia 5800 red and black in perfect condition, only accessory thats been used out of the box is the data cable. There are no scratches, its mint. Its unlocked too. Only thing is i'm looking for £130 delivered, either by bt or paypal gift.
Let me know if thats any good and i'll get you pics.
edit...
I don't have paperwork for it, as it was an upgrade, but i've gone back to using my n95. If there were to be any problems with it, then carphone warehouse repair centres can get all the details from the serial number for warranty purposes.

If only it were that easy!

She doesn't want a new phone to change the colour, she is just bored of her old phone. Just so happens that she now wants a red one!

This is a well cute phone... I'm getting another one as I misplaced mine some time ago - probably coz its so small

Its cheap too so you will have some change for next week when she wants a different colour phone.

Triband aswell so will work anywhere in the world
230 hours standby time - good to stick on your keyring so you can phone up your keys when you loose them!

Only £17 delivered and for £102 you can one of each of the 6 colours available.

Cant seem to link to Ebay but the item number is 260415012768

Hiya.

Is this phone branded or unbranded? And it's definitely as new, no scratches etc right? Do you have any pics?

I know it's unusual but would you be willing to do a deal where I pay say £50 now and in two weeks (basically when salary comes through end of the month!) I pay a remaining say, £60?

I have done this before on a £200 phone where I paid half on receipt and half 10 days later and it was ok. I have high feedback here and on eBay if that would appease your worry.

Let me know please.

Hi, i asked my bro to check it over too and he said its mint, neither of us can see any scratches or marks. There's no branding on the phone, when you turn it on it flashes up with o2 as when you turn it off it says goodbye o2. I assume this is just the welcome note thing which can be turned off.
Just tested it with a t mobile sim to be 100% its unlocked and it worked.
Not too happy about 50/50 payments, but as you've been vouched for i'm sure we could come to some agreement.

Ok, so it's not hardware branded (yay!) but is software branded to O2. Not a huge deal, I think it'll cost about £10 to get that unbranded. Not too simple to turn off!

I presume it also comes with everything as original?

What agreement can you agree with? And final price?

I'm sure there are others on HUKD who can vouch for me in addition to my feedback here, 250+ 100% positive on eBay, etc. RedDwarfIsCool is the trader I dealt with for the Samsung Innov8 where I paid half and half if that helps.

Regarding agrrement on price...Absolute lowest is £120 plus delivery at £6.70.
I would need half up front before posting and then the other half on your pay day.

Yeah if you could just wipe it, that'd be great please.

I really need this to be £60 and £60, please? Lol.

How would you like me to pay? BT or PayPal?

Payday is usually around the 28th. I will pay you as soon as my wages go in, I promise!

Let me know please.
#19
I'm sorry, not dropping to £120 delivered. My other half is really not happy about me selling on a 50/50 basis already and would rather i just take it to cex for a straight £108 cash.
£60 now and £65 by the end of the month, by bt or paypal gift.
Can do it for £115 delivered if you don't want the 8gb memory card

If it's microSD then I don't need the memory card, no! I'll transfer £55 now and £60 at the end of the month by bank transfer if that's ok.

Could you PM me with your name, address, mobile number (forum rules) and your account number and sort code so I can transfer the money.

I will transfer it in about 20 minutes (just going home from work) so if you could post it out today as well that'd be great!

Please make sure you send the original box, all original accessories, any paperwork if you have it (if!) etc. And just to confirm, it's in mint condition, no scratches, and unlocked.

Thanks again.

It is micro sd(so i'll keep that), so to confirm i'm selling for £115 delivered, £55 now, £60 at the end of the month.
Phone is unlocked in original box, all original accessories all except data cable are brand new still packaged. Its mint condition no scratches.
If for any reason you aren't happy with the condition when it arrives (although i have no idea why you wouldn't be) i will refund minus p+p on receipt of the phone back to me, provided you let me know within 1 hour of receiving it- i can't say fairer than that.
Sorry to be a pain, would you mind doing paypal gift instead of bt, then i won't have the temptaion to spend it.
Thanks.
Not sure i'm going to be able to post today, i have to wait for my daughter to get back from school. If she gets in in the next 20 mins i should be able to run to the p.o, provided 1st installment is made.
#22
Payment of £55 made, agreed with everything written there by Jo! Will keep the thread open until the transaction is complete.

Thanks!
#23
1st installment received, will get it posted now.
#24
Received the 5800 today, thanks.

Would still like to keep the thread open in case anyone else has another red phone they want to sell which is as new as knowing my wife, she might prefer a different one, even though she'll say she likes the 5800 as it's now become a gift (as she doesn't know I've bought it!!)

Also worth noting is that the 5800 is not in mint condition as described so quite disappointed by this.

Thanks.
#25
Just to keep the thread updated......
I had the phone double checked and was advised by the other person that he thought it was mint too. I posted photo's (above), i honestly saw no damage.
Anyway as i'm an honest trader and the buyer isn't happy i have offered to refund the £55 he has paid me plus the money for sending it back to me special delivery. Leaving me £13.40 out of pocket.!
Its put me off selling altogether!

your wife sounds like an ingrateful....

Lol.

I haven't given it to her yet but as it's a gift, didn't want her to notice the damage.

Dealing with the seller via PM on this and hopefully can come to a decision on what to do!

Otherwise, this thread is still open if someone else is selling one.

A mod may want to clean the thread up though if they wish!

Bump number... errr... I reckon 2/3 maybe?! I reckon the rest are just answering questions.

If I am wrong then I apologise...

Final bump, really need something by Monday or so!

Can't you get any phone and then a red fascia?
