I bought a stolen Iphone
Hi all, im really peeved at the moment. I bought a iphone 3GS about 5 months ago now which was locked to orange. I imediately telephoned orange to ask for the unlock code, (ive registered the phone with them, and with apple etc when I got it). Orange told me I had to be on their network for 3 months before they would give me the code to unlock it. So i bought a payasyougo sim and used the phone, no probs. so 3 months arrived and went but they still hadnt unlocked the phone, so more phone calls etc etc.
Anyway to cut it short, after loads of calls and about 5 months since I bought the phone and 5 months being in contact with orange, they have today told me the phone is stolen.
What i cannot understand is how does it take 5 months to work out an iphone is stolen? I cannot get in contact with the person anymore, which doesnt surprise me after 5 months. But why take so long to tell me its stolen, theyve been sooooo dam slow.
Is there anything I can do as this all just doesnt make sense to me. Nobody would take 5 months to report a stolen phone, I find it unbelieveable that orange take 5 months to tell me its stolen?
If orange had told me this straight away when I registered the phone I'd of had a better chance of getting my money back.
I feel soooooooooooo peeeved.
Can anyone advise me, or help in anyway?
