Found 9th Jul 2007
A nice basic phone, for example a spare, or for a relative/child... Available on t-mobile at CPW for £19.95 delivered, but then £5 quidco, making the phone itself a possible £4.95! Bargain! Colour screen, polyphonic ringtones, and a camera!! A possible £10 trade in is also available, which could make it £4.95 with £10 Credit

Why not:?

Do you have any details on how to do the £10 trade in?

the trade in will get you a voucher/credit to be used within 3 months, not cash unfortunately

Ah I see, so I trade in a phone (and manual, charger?) to get £10 t-mobile credit, not worth it.

no, the credit/voucher is to use instore for any of their stock, or online... that's what i got when i last did a trade in. but i just checked the site and it says a cheque will be sent to you... anyone know for sure?

That sounds better!

Anyone know what this means: "Should you return your purchase, you will receive credit to the value of £10 in vouchers to use in-store"

i guess if you used the trade in amount against the price of the handset you returned

I never said don't buy a Motorola! I used one until my wife broke hers so now she's got it. I said that the trade in wasn't worth it when I thought it was t-mobile credit. I still think it's not really worth it as I can probably get more than £10 for any of the phones that I've got. The deal is a good one still but not for me.

a lot of basic phones, even newish with colour screen dont go for much more than £10on ebay after fees, paypal charges etc so its a good deal if you have a good spec mobile with a camera and bluetooth then ebay could is worthwhile. i have a nokia 3310 brick so it could work out to 4.99 profit if i include the t-mobile credit... can anyone confirm you can trade in for cash?

isnt that the case with all motorolas!?

you see people buying nokia 1600 phones on e bay for over £20 on e bay second hand when their available for less than that anywhere:?

you can always recover fees by bumping up postage costs...

This looks like the phone my Mum had. Personally I think this is a terrible phone, it does the job as a phone but you can get more for your money.

People are only usually willing to pay about £5 for a phone delivered. Much more than that and they run the risk of getting virtually no money back if they ever need a refund as they'll only get the item price back not p&p. It doesn't make much difference anyway, which one would you buy? A phone for £20 free delivery or a phone for £5 which costs £15 p&p. It doesn't make any difference to the price you pay but you run the risk of not getting alot back if there is a problem. So personally I would buy the £20 one with free delivery.

So my point is that bumping up postage costs doesn't really work. People just add the two together and compare total prices and go with the cheapest or most reliable depending on what they prefer.

a lot of ebay buyers are novices so their stupidity can be exploited! ive sold second hand phones that were way cheaper at cpw new!
