Headphones gone faulty, how to get replacement?

I bought a Nokia 5800 phone brand new with all accessories etc from eBay.

Unfortunately, after just an hour of use the headphones have stopped working properly. The left headphone gives out a loud crackle/static noise everytime I play something. I have tried the usual disconnecting and reconnecting, restarting phone, taking battery out, etc but nothing works.

The seller kindly sent me in e-mail the T-Mobile dispatch for warranty purposes. The Nokia website states the manufacturer warranty does cover accessories. But how do I get a replacement headphones sent to me? Who do I contact as the dispatch note obviously doesn't have my name or address on it.

Have you tried to contact the seller on ebay - your contract is with him.

I've just been doing more digging and some people say on internet to just take it to Nokia service centre and they should either repair or give replacement free. Maybe I'll pop in to one of these repair places on my way back on friday.

do that
and if that doesnt work you could open a dispute with paypal and get the seller to refund enough for a new pair.
