Bought phone off eBay, what to check?

Found 15th Oct 2017
Hi all,

Bought an s8 off eBay and going away in a week for atleast a good 6 months

I just wanted to know if theres a way to check
Warranty situation do I need proof of purchase form seller or Samsung only care about serial number?

If there's a way to check there's outstanding finance on it?

Anything else I should double check?
Thanks!

If you bought it off eBay 2nd hand, are you sure the warranty will be transferable, I always thought they were not as second hand goods.

If you bought new from a retailer, you'll find all the info on their t&cs
Adding to Jackvdbuk, if you buying 2nd hand you can ask seller to send you proof of purchase/upgrade to claim any warranty in case of any fault.
Too late to worry about it now.
I'd be more worried about getting back to the UK and finding it's been blacklisted because the seller has reported it lost/stonen and got another one.
Quite few insurance provides won't cover handsets bought off eBay. If you plan to insure it, check the small print.
Thanks all, I think you can claim off PayPal for six months and hopefully won't need invoice anyway for Samsung warranty... Fingers crossed
Going away for 6 months?
I didn't think you were allowed phones in prison!
