Grade A is effectively brand new, mine came with seal still on the phone and un-used charger and headphones.

I’m going to imagine it’s being paid as part of a contract or in instalments etc. The issue being whether or not the person intends to keep making the payments

Lol I ignore credit value as no one is taking their iPhone 11 Pro in to trade for CeX credit whether it’s stolen or their own

It must be, can these people not work out how much £55+ a month for 24 months costs them when they sell the phone for £464
People addicted to credit cards do it. It is robbing Peter to pay Paul.
Problem is they keep falling for the next new shiny item.
Tbh, i bet it works out cheaper than a payday loan for some
Well if you're going apple go pro. But 64gb might be too little.

But I’m pretty sure CeX do those checkmend checks to see whether the phone is tied to a contract before buying them don’t they? Regardless, you get 24 months warranty so you’re effectively covered for the length of said contract.

agreed these will get blacklisted way before the end of the contract length

That can't happen, CeX have you sign over the ownership of the device and copy official identification. The device is then registered as CeX the owner, if the sell was to then try and claim it was stolen CeX would be alerted at which point they would supply the evidence to the police before a block would be issued, or so I was told.

A phone doesn’t get blocked because someone hasn’t paid their monthly contract.

Its nothing to do with reporting these phones as stolen. Its to do with the fact these are contract phones on usually 24 month plans where payment is required every month. It is people taking these contracts out and then selling in the phone to get £464 immediate cash and then not pay the contract. When the phone service provider catches on after a few months of no payment, the phone gets blacklisted and cannot be used on any UK service provider. By then the £464 cash is gone way long before.

It costs them a small excess if they claim off insurance which they almost always do, so they end up with a working phone and then also stop paying the bill - double-bubble. At least CeX cover you for this but it's just very annoying. EE locked too so definitely linked to that network!

Yes, it does, especially if the network supplied it - just as EE did in this case. You'd think having to supply EE with ID would put people off trying it on but I've seen bigger idiots...

In my experience they don’t. I think it is a common misconception personally. They cannot block the phone and demand payment.
And they will continue to demand payment for many months before handing over to a debt company.

Yes they can and do. It’s called a network block and when applied they share the IMEI with all networks - it’s totally legal as it’s their property and they don’t have to let you use their network. If it’s EE locked anyway, even if they only blocked it on EE only they can unlock it. Anyway, it hardly matters with an iPhone, if it’s under warranty Apple just replaces the thing anyway...

Only if it’s reported lost or stolen will it be blocked. For non payment of contract the phone won’t be blocked, the sim will be, the phone won’t.

No the sim is blocked, the phone is only blocked if lost/stolen.

Ive spoken to many cex store managers/supervisors that have told me of such practice.

They know it's happening but it's not for several months down the line when cex have already sold the phone when the buying customer returns saying it's been blocked. The store gives an exchange or credit refund.

Store doesn't care because it's already secured cheap buy in and sold on for couple hundred in profit. Returned blocked phone is passed onto a third party contractor, usually sold for use abroad or parts

You are talking about somebody selling a phone not under contract to cex and doing an insurance job a few months down the line.

And then CeX is pestering the network silly with checks about if it's in contract! You can buy a phone from CeX and it should be fine but they'll sort it out if it's not. However buying a newly-released network-locked phone, seems to be setting yourself up for a fall.

If the phone is FREE then it’s the owners all out right and can never be blocked as it’s FREE ??? The contract however will be the debt of the person who accepted the FREE phone ??

I hope you’re joking... read the T&Cs of the contract. It’s not ‘free’, there is just no upfront payment - that doesn’t mean it’s free. Anyway you try pleading that one in court and see how far you get.
