Be careful buying anything off ebay like a "new phone"

I am aware of phone scams where they are stolen etc and then sold on ebay for much cheaper.. how could someone be selling the phone cheaper than apple..? that's the question you need to ask.

The good news is this buyer has been on ebay since 2002 so that is a good sign. but he has a lot of phones for sale.. some working and some not.

i prefer buying from apple itself, you get the maximum guarantee
as mentioned in their site, you can pay on 6,12 or 18 month payments, which make it a lot perfect

That is a good deal, I used e-bay before to buy my current iPhone 4s, it's been 2 years with no issues.

Hi,

yes, scott is right, Be careful buying anything off ebay like a "new phone". Ebay always play with word. like they mention  about seller warranty, manufacturer or ebay warranty.

Double check with ebay and ask about warranty and make sure it should be manufacturer warranty.

In your case it is showing Ebay guarantee, that means they will refund the money in case your phone is not delivered. (http://pages.ebay.com/coverage/index.html).

I am the victim of ebay, where i buy my Samsung S3 and why i got a fault and i went to samsung services center they said they do not have any record about my phone.


So my suggestion will be donot buy it from ebay.

thanks for the nice tip.. i checked with them and they it does carry manufacturer warranty. should that suffice. i made an offer and they are giving counter offer of 590$ (as against apple's 650$).. if it truly has manufacturer warranty, do you think is there anything else to check before confirming the ebay deal. (their reviews as you said has some history and that is good to know).

thanks again for your thoughts which are helpful

Hi,

No its not sufficient, you need to confirm from ebay also. As if product is not registered then how manufacturer can provide the warranty.

Try should provide the manufacturer warranty.
