My daughter lost her I Phone, reported it missing (so it's blocked), it was found but had a broken screen...worth anything or not? Or would I not be able to sell it on here. She's got herself a Blackberry now so gave it to me to do what I want with!

You could sell it broken, but as it is blocked it cannot be sold afaik. Actually I'm not sure you might be able to, as long as you made the buyer fully aware.
#2
Is it unblocked now?
Did you claim on insurance for it?

If it's just a broken screen and you asked the network to unblock it and didn't make any insurance claims I don't see a problem. Though you will have to wait 7 days before listing it on here now.

Wasn't insured :( Haven't asked the network to unblock as she has a new phone and it is just a broken screen. Yes, I know I can't list it yet.

How broken is the screen?
#5
If it's unblocked it will sell for more as it will be usable (screen is a fairly easy fix if you're technologically minded/capable).
#6
As long as it isn't blocked i should think it could be sold as damaged. As long as you disclose the full damage in the fs/ft thread.

And also wait 7 days from the post of this thread.

I believe that it is only blocked in the UK and would work abroad. You often see them going for reasonable money even with this on the listing.

Look on ebay, there was a blocked one doing £180 last time I saw it as they still work just outside uk.

Surely the best thing to do is phone and unblock it!! Then you have turn a useless phone into a useful one.
#15
For spares the main parts you need though are the mainboard and screen, on this the mainboard is barred in the UK and the screen is broken.
#16
I lost mine and blocked it. I found it and had it unblocked straight away.

My friend cracked her screen and it cost £35 to repair.

For the price of a phonecall you'd add ££s to the selling price.
#17
If as you say you havent claimed on the insurance the network will unblock it for you.
#18
If you have not claimed on the insurance and can prove original ownership in theory you should be able to sell on here.

I would reort this thread for a response from ASB for the official line though
#19
I would be interested if you can sell on here, i want to see the insides and see how it works, and learn how to fix them

Thread closed. You may consider listing this if you can prove that the phone is not blocked. It may be problematic, but it's the best we can offer at present.
