Though it has been old topic now, but i think i might be able to put a bit more into this. I have been Ebay member since 2003 and i buy and sell mobiles and mobile related things and from my experince of buying and selling i can tell you that,
Whenever you are buying mobile phones especially expensive (above £100), please make sure you are asking the seller if it is Original Genuine brand and not a cheap chinese copy. Now a days people are selling cheap Chinese copies as Original Genuine brands.
PLEASE BE ASSURED THAT ABOVE 95% OF GENUINE BRANDED MOBILE DO NOT OFFER DUAL SIM FASCILITY WHILE CHINESE COPIES OFFERS THIS. YOU CAN ONLY PUT ONE SIM CARD IN ORIGINAL GENUINE BRANDED MOBILE WHILE IN CHINESE VERSION OF THAT MOBILE YOU CAN PUT TWO SIM CARDS MOST OF THE TIME. MOSTLY CHINESE COPIES LISTINGS SAYS THAT YOU WILL GET EUROPEAN PLUG CHARGER IF YOU ARE IN EUROPE OR IF IN UK / USA YOU WILL GET UK / USA CHARGER AND ALSO YOU WILL GET TWO BATTERIES AND OTHER THINGS.
AGAIN ABOVE 95% ORIGINAL GENUINE BRANDED MOBILES WILL NOT GIVE EXTRA ACCESSORIES LIKE EXTRA BATTERIES OR ANY THING TO THE CUSTOMER AS THEY WANT TO MAKE AS MUCH MONEY AS THEY CAN, BUT CHEAP CHINESE COPIES WILL GIVE YOU EXTRA ACCESSORIES LIKE BATTERIES, POUCHS EXTRA.
Do not buy in bulk from the seller having less then 10 feedback (ALL 10 feedbacks must be for bulk sales), always ask the seller to pay by cash on collection, if they are genuine they will say yes, otherwise they will simply say no and give you alot of crap reasons. Make sure you are only paying by paypal and through ebay to cover your self against any fraud. Ask the seller to send you close photographs of the mobiles.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST
DO NOT BUY IF THE DEAL IS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE
