Hi,

I have a 5 day old white 16g iphone.
It was a replacement phone and so does not come with a box, it also has a small dent in the back of it, its just the phone and charger. The charger is from the old phone so is not new and has some marks and a bit of paint on it, but all works.

I will get pics up in the morning - just need to re-claim it from my sister!

£230 including royal mail special next day delivery


Edit***

PLEASE READ:

I have now found the original box, which is as new, there is NOT a dent in the phone (i was looking at my hubbys phone and not this one!)

Phone is on Orange at the moment

Hi, couple of questions, any chance you could get the phone unlocked by Orange? Also as you have just had it replaced how much warranty is left (if memory serves me right it has 3 months added for a refurb) appreciate a reply, cheers All the best Jake

Hi,
I think you could get the phone unlocked at loads of places, think orange charge?
We had the previous phone for more than 12 mths so not sure if there is any warranty left tbh.
Sorry if that's a bit vague.
Thanks

Hi cheers for reply,
I would not be interested in getting it jailbreaked as it is for a present and I would not want them to worry about updating it via itunes. As far as I know Orange charge £20, if you would be willing to do this then I will make an offer odviously taking in to account you paying the extra £20. Thanks jake

EDIT* Sorry forgot to ask, I know it's only 5 days old but has it managed to pick up any scratches on the front or back, hard to tell from the photos, cheers

Hi,
sorry if im being dumb here, but what do you mean about it being jailbroken? do you mean you do want to jailbreak it?
If you made an offer to cover the £20 charge by orange for unlocking the phone then yes I'd be happy to get it done for you :)

Hi,
No worries, my girlfriend would be have no idea either about jailbreak etc..which is why I would want the official unlock, I would not want it jailbreaked, this is the way most places unofficially unlock an iphone and when you update it via itunes it becomes networked locked again so the easiest way for it to be officially unlocked is the owner (you) needs to contact there contract supplier.
If you could find out how long it would take for orange to sort it and its nice and quick then I would be happy to give you £230, you said you would take £215, + £20 for unlock + a bit of haggling ;)
Cheers Jake

Hey Jake,
I'd be looking for £235 for the phone and to get it unlocked with orange. I'd drop to £215 on the phone but couldnt go any lower, only going that low as i need the money.
I would have thought that it wouldnt take long to get it unlocked, could probably get it sorted and then post out to you either tomorrow or thursday. It would be sent next day special delivery with royal mail

Just had a quick look online and apparently it can take 7-14 days and then you need to connect it to your itunes account for the unlock to be confirmed oO I'm sure my mate got his unlocked from orange ill see what he says when I finish for the day. Ill get back to you as soon as I find out, dont really want to wait up to 2 weeks. thanks again Jake

Anyone else unlocked an iphone via orange?
#21
ok Jake, wow that is a long time. Let me know what your mate says. thanks caz
#22
I had both my iphones unlocked by the carrier : O2 (took less than a week) and VF (took 2 months)

Thanks but £235 would be the lowest with the unlocking and we still dont know how long that takes
#29
Hi Caz,
he said it took just over 2 weeks, although his brothers was done in a few days more recently so i'm not sure if it's random or they have hopefully improved? If you get to speak to them and find out how long or a date im still interested at £235.
All the best Jake
#30
Ok jake, will call orange tomorrow. Would you be willing to pay upfront? And id post the phone once unlocked?
#31
Just a heads up on unlocking the phone once you have contacted Orange to arrange the unlock it can. E synced with any iTunes account as it is done from the Emi number not the SIM so you could request the unlock then just post the phone and they can sync through iTunes themselves also Orange won't unlock if you are not at least half way through contract

Hi Caz, going by what Graham has said (cheers for info mate) it all sounds like we can sort this fairly easily. If you could clarify this with Orange and its correct then its all good ;) Just let me know what they say, If its right I can pay you, you post the phone and let me know as soon as they say its done and ill connect it to the mrs itunes account.

Just to clarify a few details I asked earlier but made a late edit so I think you missed it, does it have any scratches at all, front or back it's hard to tell on the photo, Also do you have the imei number, not the one on the box (as it's been replaced it will have a new one which you can see when you connect it to itunes) this way I can double check the phones status on the apple site. Best to pm imei number dont post it, also when we know its all going through and you get it unlocked I think you need to make sure they know its new imei or they may try to unlock the old phone, lol listen to me going on..... sorry just want to make sure it all runs smoothly as it's a lot of money ;) All the best Jake
#33
Morning Jake,
I will try and call orange once work is through and will let you know what they say but if you want we can do the deal, I'll call orange and ask and pay for the unlock and then post the phone out to you?

regarding your questions:
The back of the phone has no scratches that I can see, the front has one extremely faint line, not really a scratch ( cant really see it at all) its at the top part of the phone in the black area if you know what I mean.
I have just pm'd you the IMEI number. Good point about unlocking the wrong phone, glad you mentioned it :)
Thanks again
Caz

Hi Caz,
good news about the scratches as it's a present (early graduation present to cheer my girlfriend up during her horrific exams!) I was hoping it was mint, one feint mark wont matter. I was a bit of an idiot, it was the serial number I need to check the phones status on apple not the imei number! pay pal or bank transfer is fine, paypal usually goes through quicker though I think? I'm happy to pay the full amount once orange confirm it's ok and that I can connect it to my iTunes rather than wait, sorry if i'm being a bit cautious it's just i'm weary of spending this much on ebay let alone hukd which offers little to no protection but your superb feedback is what swayed me this time! Once I can check the phone on apples site and you have confirmed with orange I will pay instantly. All the best Jake

Hi Jake,
what a thoughtful boyfriend you are!
I will pm you the serial number in a couple of minutes :)
So what exactly do you want me to ask orange when i manage to call them?
Thanks

Hi Caz,
thanks for super fast responce, I just checked the serial number and it states there is no cover left, you can check here Apple site link. Was it definatly a replacement by Apple? if so I think I would need the reciept that came with this phone to prove it still has the 80 days left, do you think you will be able to find it?
With regards to Orange, I just want to make sure that they will unlock it (phone companies have a tendancy to chop and change there terms all the time) and if you could ask does it matter which iTunes account you connect it to to complete the unlocking. I have to go off to lunch now but will check back soon as,
Cheers Jake

If this falls through I can offer 220
#38
Hi Jake,
the phone was sent by orange to replace one that had a smashed screen (my 2 year old niece grabbed it and launched it across a tiled floor!)
We moved house on Sunday and so far I haven't come across the slip of paper that came with the phone.
With regards to Orange I shall call them as soon as I'm home from work, hopefully 10ish tonight :)

oO poor iPhone, not the best toy to play with lol! That makes sense why it's not on the apple site, shame as the warranty with orange is'nt transferrable I doubt and Apple wont acknowledge it but as it's just been replaced fingers crossed it will not go wrong anyime soon.
Look forawrd to hearing back with regards to the call to Orange, If I paid tonight would you be able to post out tomorrow?
All the best Jake
