Hi, I just wanted to share my experience in buying mobile phones on eBay.
I found a Samsung d600, for around £60 and bid on it at the last second. The description seemed genuine, although the item was coming from the US. The seller advertised free postage, and had a 100% positive feedback rating.
After about 4 weeks, my item finally arrived, and contrary to the description, it was barred from all UK networks and was not new.
Using Paypal, i got most of my money back, and am still waiting for the rest from the seller. Without paypals' resolution centre, i would be stuck with a useless phone and £60 worse off.
If you do buy mobiles on eBay, make sure they are in the Uk, and ALWAYS pay by Paypal, because of the insurance that is standard with all payments.
Always be wary if something seems too good to be true, as it probably is.
Thank you for your time
