Aint they more than likely given away "free" with phone contracts, so people are actually selling for profit?

because the touchpad were sold at the end for next to nothing and people are trying to sell them on here and make massive profit

TP were sold from 89 upwards, depending on model. But even at £200 from eBay they were seen as a bargain.

There are iPads being sold on here for more than say the pcworld sale price from last week but no one thinks the seller is profiteering .

I am not sure what the rules are for selling free TP or any other freebie like that. They have s price built into the contract for sure. But it is not obvious to me how they can be valued for selling on here

i have asked this, you can sell the TP or other *free* items from a contract for up to the total cost of the contract, so long as the items sold do not exceed that total.
So if a contact cost £400, and you got a free phone + TP, then you can sell those items for up to £400 and not over.

athunder explains the situation well.

As for the initial question, when aware, we'll always ask for additional information if we suspect there's an element of profiteering from a deal on here.
