i have but wondererd if anyone had an idea...we can see who is the closest lmao

Probably asking if its stolen,ie will it get blocked lol

think he is asking if you will sell first out of auction or could be very thick and not know the auction end date?

see debz i never thought of that one

i think he means is it in working order
or maybe he means will it ring while its still in the wrapper and spoil the surprise for his son lol

'go off' meaning break maybe? :?

Phone selling is a minefield on Ebay,with the scammers.

Have you got your seller preferences sorted,to block overseas bidders etc.

Probably means if he waits to bid on it will it get removed early as many people take an offer and remove the auction,

try av forums

Im dying to know now,

wheres boothy, maybe he can call them for me!

I'd ban them from bidding.

Someone who's too thick to ask a coherent question will cause you problems should they win.

Harsh perhaps, but I speak from bitter,bitter experience.

Sorry, just overly cautious when it comes to the bay. I've got hundreds on my banlist and stipulate 100% positive feedbacks for my bidders. And I ban anyone that I get a bad feeling about.

Again harsh, but I have had to deal with some utter cretins in the past. Simply not worth it.

Be aware it could be a hacked account. Phones are REALLY bad for this, tread with serious cauton.

Lou, you need to check with the PO, and that the parcel is still there, … Lou, you need to check with the PO, and that the parcel is still there, double check.Did they verify the address, I may be wrong as I don't usually need to use special. Don't the PO take the postcode and the house number for special and use that, rather than the address?I wouldn't want to see it go to the wrong place. The person doing the parcel should of spotted this error, as that's part of the address verification process I thought.



yes it wouldnt verify so he done it manually, i'll give them a call i think :thumbsup:
