well depends as phone shops charge for the sim preloaded with credit for £10 for example when buying certain phones, and thus surely have an RRP.
So surely could sell them on, but of course if inclusive of the voucher rule then they can only be traded like for like.
Also i doubt anyone would sell them on for £10 anyways (although that would have to be the limit: the value of credit) as most have been forced to buy them to get the phone at a cheaper price and thus would probably only expect upto 75% of the value of it id guess.

i thought top up vouchers came under the voucher rule, but sim cards preloaded with credit could be sold, although please dont hold me on that as i could have dreamt it

nah this is what i believe but thought best to check as i was going to list one soon and seen a few being advertised recently, but since the new rules on top up vouchers being included under voucher rules thought best for clarification.

There is no restriction on it at present. That said, I can think of several reasons why I'd rather not sell my pre registered sim/number to a complete stranger on the internet in order to recover a couple of quid. The risks far outweigh the benefits.

EDIT: Cheers for your quick reply.

so surely its on the retail sellers system and not the network providers? And therefore not really a worry?
Sorry im just trying to see the risks if any, especially as i cant see an instance where my details might be given out by the retailer, or for that even the network provider if so.

i think you will find if illegal activity has taken place then the retailer can give out info, everything in this day is trackable back

Sometimes the sims with the credit are registered to the buyer,most times they aren't

ah yeah i get that one, but then surely they are not going to provide the new owner with for example my personal details as if it was an illegal activity then should be reported to the police for example, then they might find out and face me but that would be it.

So to you and sassie surely a quick phone call to have your details removed as your are passing the sim on would be acceptable? Thus removing the risk?

was just saying what could happen, anyone could phoen up and pretend thewy ahve passed the sim on, ya just dont know these days, think this was what ASB was saying.


so say your card was being used for illegal activity even though you had phone up netwrok, if it was real bad then im sure the police would be all over you, yes nothing to do with you, but mud sticks also depending on the crime done how far things would go

fair point! but if youve notified them your no longer in possession you would have some proof especially as they can see what calls have taken place in what areas on what phones as well.
But still fair point.

Anyways cheers ASB i got the answer to what i wanted, can expire now.

Sassie, thanks - that's what I was trying to say. I wouldn't sell, not worth the possibility of my phone being taken away, arrested, whatever may happen should I forget to have mentioned to the mobile company that I was no longer the owner of the sim/number and the number was used to assist in illegal activities.

Thread locked as per OP request above. Thanks.

doesnt really matter, if the crime is big enough then they will want to know the ins and outs of megs donkey, i understand it will probs never happen, but would you really want to get yaself involved in something horrific for the sake of a tenner
