Pot luck,I had to send back the last good condition from here. Embarrassing to class it as good condition
I just made my first order at Music Magpie. My copy of GTA5 arrived Friday and went to try it out and it says there is a problem with the disk.
I got my GF a Samsung s6, about 3 weeks later it stop charging (have looked it up and seems to be a common issue). So thought that ok it comes with 12months warranty. send the phone back 3 days later I have an email saying they have refunded my money with no other communion. checked the website the the phone jumped from £116 to £170,

called them up and they said they did not have any phone in stock even tho they have 100s on there website. but they said the repair centre use different stock and have none in stoke. the phone was under under warranty so i would like it fixed or swapped for a like for like model. she then had to speak to her manager and supprice they where all in a meeting. called the following day and a new woman said order up a new phone and give her the order number and she will refund me the difference. which did.
new phone arrived the next day and it had a EE sim card (pay as you go) in it. and had Virgin apps on it (was not able to remove these. only disable them) even tho i paid for a unlocked phone. so should not of had these apps on it.

if this happens to you make sure you stand your ground. (u would expect the phone prices to come down not shoot up over £50 in 3-4weeks)

definitely stand your ground for being mis-sold and being sent faulty items but don't expect prices to continually fall - they rise and fall in line with stock levels, condition and consumer demand (plus accounting for any promotions they may have been running at the time).

my guess is your first phone just went back onto the shelf and sold to the next person. the "checking" that companies like this do is very minimal. I've had similar issues from the like of B&Q; took back 2 faulty leaf blowers in a row and watched the guy put it straight back on the shelf after I demonstrated to him that it was broken.

I ordered an iPhone 7plus from the 20% eBay deal a few weeks ago. It was in really quite bad condition so I ordered another one and it’s in great condition.

I guess it is it is just your luck and how much effort your willing to go to!

Thanks.

Same here but iPhone SE. Good condition was MINT.

I have an iPhone 7 256gb mint condition for sale
Bought a samsung j3 from them for a relative to use. The phones condition wasnt the best i agreE , however some blemishes can be disguised by a case and screen protector. As long as the price / battery / phone performance are as they should be.
With used or old iphones i would recommend getting the battery replaced by apple this year. It works wonders for the phones performance.
Do these come oem boxed with chargers and lightning, or just the phone in a jiffy bag?
Wouldn't buy anything from this pathetically run company.This company should not be trading with the goods they sell,you may be lucky,but a fair percentage of goods are fit for the bin.Had trouble with 2 items purchased from this mickey mouse company and just look at their feedback on eBay,buyers are outraged by their customer service and selling policies.Im sure loads of people have had no issues,but personally I wouldn't buy from these after the rubbish they sent me out,the goods I purchased stated they were in very good condition,but when arrived they were literally fit for the bin.Avoid.

Bought an iphone 6s recently and it came with an Apple Iphone 8 box and a usb to lightning lead. No charging plug.
Expect they sometimes send in old apple boxes if people selling them to them have sent them in, otherwise they just use a generic suitable box. Bought one in "good" condition and was virtually immaculate but have heard others not being so lucky. Guess its the luck of the draw! You can always return if not happy for a refund if not happy with condition.

I wouldn't describe it as 'luck of the draw' as this will create false hope - it's more likely to be scratched and chipped than immaculate with this being the lowest grade.

I suspect they either didn't have the correct grade to fulfil your order and sent you a better grade instead or something else lowered the grading - such as battery capacity. If they just sent immaculate phones out all the time then there would be no point having grading tiers. I think this site skews the reality of these sites somewhat because the people who happened to get phones in good nick are more vociferous than those who got crappy ones. Remember that *all* of these phones are recycled, and how many of your family and friends have what you would describe as 'immaculate' phones? It's people like your family and friends who end up sending their phones off to these companies.

I recently ordered an iPhone 6S from MM: Condition: Very Good, Colour: Silver, Storage Capacity: 64GB, Network: Vodafone and when it arrived it was pristine like new. Upon checking the iPhone model number I was able to see it was a 'Replacement device, meaning the originally bought device was replaced by this model likely due to a service request'. osxdaily.com/201…ed/

Most likely is the original owner got a replacement prior to upgrading so as to get a better price for the old handset.

Either way I'm happy.
Price shows £369.99 for the 128GB version which when I take off 20% for the promo code brings it to £308.32, how are you getting it at £287.99 please?
Don't forget to go through Quidco for cashback!

Ordered an SE a few days ago and it's pretty much mint

Its not false hope at all, your want a 2nd hand phone with a 12 month warranty- whats the problem?? Yes I may have got lucky but under distance selling rules you could send it back if not completely happy. They may be recycled but is it not the same as buying a 2nd hand car? You have no idea who has or how it has been driven before but millions are still traded every year. My friends and family tend to look after our property thereby gaining the highest return when it comes to moving it on, and to think that only happy customers would post on a site like this is ludicrous.Dissatisfied customers are more likely to complain and to more people. Common fact.

I think you misunderstood my point about 'false hope'. This company is perfectly respectable and there's no problem with them issuing refunds should the buyer be unhappy. All I meant was that most phones on the lowest tier will not be in very good condition because the lowest tier will be the lowest tier for a reason. If your family are sensible enough to keep their phones in great condition for the highest resale value then that's great; however sites like this don't tend to pay more for better condition handsets anyway, so more savvy people with immaculate phones won't tend to recycle them at places like this if they'd get the same (fairly poor) recycle price as if they were battered.

Sites like this kind of rely on 'luck of the draw' when buying in phones for a set price anyway, but on that basis I can't see any commercial reason why they would give out very good condition or immaculate handsets as a matter of course under the lowest grading if it effectively loses them money (unless there were some circumstantial reason, such as being unable to fulfil an already paid order). Surely what I'm saying here makes sense?

I completely agree with you that disgruntled people are far more likely to complain. I've made this point myself when people have talked about the poor ratings of a given network, and you only have to look at the thread for an EE tweet to see how much more anger than happiness there is. For the same reason I always take TripAdvisor reviews with a pinch of salt, and focus more on the positive reviews. I didn't really express my point well on this front, and it was just to say that I don't think people would 'complain' on here so much about the condition of a phone bought from Musicmagpie and the like because they knew that it was a punt. What I mean by that is that I think the few people who get a good phone are likely to be so happy that they'll post a picture or comment on how happy they are, where those who got one in not particularly great condition might be more likely to silently send it back. It was just a theory anyway.
